Abstract

BACKGROUND - : We report the predictors of long-term outcomes of symptomatic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients undergoing surgical relief of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. METHODS AND RESULTS - : We studied 699 consecutive patients who have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with severe symptomatic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (47±11 years, 63% male) intractable to maximal medical therapy, who were referred to a tertiary hospital between January 1997 and December 2007 for the surgical relief of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. We excluded patients
