We investigated the miRNAs expression profile in three patients with FHCM with MYBPC3 gene mutations and compared the miRNA expression profiles with those of the normal control group by miRNA-seq. The significantly differentially expressed miRNAs was verified by real-time polymerase chain reaction...

Abstract BACKGROUND: To assess the long-term clinical and echocardiographic outcomes of the Edge-to-Edge (EE) mitral repair added to septal myectomy in patients with mitral regurgitation (MR) and hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). METHODS: This is a single-center study of 26 HOCM patients (septal thickness 17±3mm, resting LVOT gradient 63±20mmHg, MR≥2+/4+), submitted to EE mitral procedure combined with ventricular septal myectomy. The EE was used to treat MR due to systolic anterior motion (SAM) in 19 patients (73%) and to posterior leaflet prolapse/flail in 7(27%). RESULTS...

Int J Angiol DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1709463Alcohol septal ablation (ASA) is an effective interventional therapeutic strategy to reduce or eliminate left ventricular outflow tract obstruction in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). Although ASA was introduced 25 years ago, there are still no available guidelines to follow. Therefore, most interventional cardiologists rely on their own experience, which is often limited by a relatively low number of performed procedures. This paper presents ten tips and tricks to safe and effective ASA for HOCM. [...] Thieme Medical Publishers 333 Seventh Avenue, New Yo...

Congratulations to the Raffa et  al. on their study [1]. We wish to highlight some issues regarding their paper. The pathophysiological mechanism of the development of mitral regurgitation differs between hypertension and hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). In HOCM, interventricular septum (IVS) and the anterior leafl et of the mitral valve approach each other owing to hypertrophy of IVS. Thus, the jet-like flow through the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) causes the Venturi effect and drags the anterior leaflet, leading to mitral regurgitation, which is called systolic anterior motion (SAM).
