Evaluation of left ventricular outflow tract area after septal reduction in obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: a real-time 3-dimensional echocardiographic study.

Am. Heart J.. 2005 Oct;150(4):852-8, PMID: 16209993

The comparative impact of percutaneous alcohol septal reduction (ASR) and surgical myectomy on the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) area in patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) is not well defined. Real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) provides accurate information about the LVOT geometry and shape. We aimed to analyze the change in LVOT area after septal reduction interventions in patients with obstructive HC using RT3DE.
