Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nonsurgical septal reduction by coil embolisation of the first major septal branch was successfully performed in a 34-year-old patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, resulting in acute reduction of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and symptomatic improvement. Follow-up at 18 months showed sustained clinical and echocardiographic benefits from the procedure. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reported in Singapore.
