Childhood hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and its relevant surgical outcome

ConclusionsIn our cohort of children with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy undergoing septal myectomy, biventricular obstruction, myocardial bridging, and intraventricular anatomical abnormalities are frequent phenotypic components. Despite the complexity of childhood hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, surgical treatment results in a favorable outcome in carefully selected patients.

AbstractAs highly sensitive and specific markers of myocardial damage, cardiac troponins were demonstrated to correlate with clinical parameters of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. However, the relationship between cardiac troponins and presence of non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT) in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy remains unclear. The aim of our study was to explore the association between serum cardiac troponin I (cTNI) and presence of NSVT in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). A total of 309 HOCM patients were enrolled in our study. All participants underwent clinical evaluat...

ConclusionsSeptal myectomy, performed in a tertiary referral center, had a 30-day mortality rate of 0% and low morbidity rate. There was no difference between observed myectomy mortality and STS Calculator predicted risk for AVR and MV repair. It is possible that a larger sample could reveal lower mortality than STS prediction.

"Incompatible Housemates": Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy and Takotsubo Syndrome. Intern Med. 2019 Dec 06;: Authors: Sato Y, Matsumoto K, Sakai J, Nakamura T, Tanaka H, Hirata K Abstract This case report concerns an 81-year-old woman with previously well-controlled hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). She was referred to our hospital because of the acute onset of takotsubo syndrome. Echocardiography revealed basal hyperkinesis due to takotsubo syndrome superimposed on septal hypertrophy, which resulted in the reappearance of prominent left ventricular outflow tract obstruc...
