Survival of patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who undergo septal myectomy appears to be excellent, and in some series, is similar to that of matched populations. In this study, we investigated causes of late death in a large cohort of surgical patients.

Surgical septal myectomy is a standard treatment option for patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Subvalvular abnormalities of the mitral valve might play an important role in residua...
The mid-term outcome of patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is unclear.
To assess the frequency and implications of mitral valve (MV) surgery at the time of septal myectomy (SM) for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in a national cohort.
The primary surgical therapy for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) with obstruction is septal myectomy (SM). The current outcomes of SM with and without concomitant mitral operations in the United Sta...
This report presents a case of a 68-year-old woman with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) and concomitant mitral regurgitation (MR). Preoperative echocardiography showed stenosis of the l...
The purpose of the study is to assess the role of mitral valve apparatus in the development of outflow tract obstruction in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and to identify the be...
Objective of the study: to evaluate whether alfieri technique improves clinical and hemodynamic results compared to transaortic mitral valve secondary cord cutting in patients scheduled to...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the application of the extended myoectomy in patients with obstruction of the left ventricular output more efficient than standard myoecto...
Investigators aim to assess changes in exercise capacity and quality of life after septal myectomy in patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Investigators aim to use comparative exome and/or genome sequencing to discover causative molecular lesions for phenotypes hypothesized to be caused by somatic mutations. For this study, i...
An autosomal dominant inherited form of HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY. It results from any of more than 50 mutations involving genes encoding contractile proteins such as VENTRICULAR MYOSINS; cardiac TROPONIN T; ALPHA-TROPOMYOSIN.
A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
An autosomal recessively inherited glycogen storage disease caused by GLUCAN 1,4-ALPHA-GLUCOSIDASE deficiency. Large amounts of GLYCOGEN accumulate in the LYSOSOMES of skeletal muscle (MUSCLE, SKELETAL); HEART; LIVER; SPINAL CORD; and BRAIN. Three forms have been described: infantile, childhood, and adult. The infantile form is fatal in infancy and presents with hypotonia and a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHY, HYPERTROPHIC). The childhood form usually presents in the second year of life with proximal weakness and respiratory symptoms. The adult form consists of a slowly progressive proximal myopathy.

Isoforms of MYOSIN TYPE II, specifically found in the ventricular muscle of the HEART. Defects in the genes encoding ventricular myosins result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
