Abstract

Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) is a primary, usually familial and genetically fixed myocardial hypertrophy, with dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. An alternative to surgical myectomy in the treatment of severe, drug refractory, HOCM is percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA). We report a case of 24 year old female patient who had the first septal myectomy but because of progression of her disease, the percutaneous treatment of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy was performed. A year after the PTSMA the patient was without of symptoms.
