Reverse Remodeling After PTSMA in Severe But Asymptomatic LVOT Obstruction

2020-01-22 12:12:51 | BioPortfolio


Patients with HOCM and severe LVOT obstruction can remain asymptomatic while significant cellular and structural changes of the heart (adverse remodeling) may occur preceding heart failure and rhythm disorders. Hence, preventing adverse remodeling through LVOT desobstruction may have significant impact on cardiac function and geometry in this particular population, as it is in symptomatic patients.

The investigators will assess functional and structural characteristics of the myocardium in asymptomatic vs. symptomatic patients with severe LVOT obstruction before and after PTSMA, using advanced imaging studies with LGE-CMR and echocardiography.


The trial consists of three cohorts

1. Symptomatic HOCM patients with severe LVOT obstruction undergoing PTSMA (reference group)

2. Asymptomatic HOCM patients with severe LVOT obstruction undergoing PTSMA (study group)

3. Asymptomatic HOCM patients with severe LVOT obstruction with no intervention (observation group)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (From Muscle Nerve 1995;3:S61-9; Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp73-4)

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.
