Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to compare the results of percutaneous septal myocardial ablation (PSMA) and surgical myectomy (SM) for decreasing the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradient, septal thickness, ventricular dimensions, and mitral regurgitation (MR) in patients with symptomatic hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy.
