OBJECTIVE The classic Morrow technique for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) in patients with simultaneous obstruction of left ventricular (LV) midcavity and right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) combined with extreme left ventricular hypertrophy, is not effective. A new technique for HOCM surgical correction in patients with severe hypertrophy is proposed. METHODS The excision of the asymmetrical hypertrophied area of the interventricular septum (IVS) causing simultaneous… CONTINUE READING
