Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common monogenic cardiac disorder and has been estimated to occur in one of every 500 persons in the general population, amounting to a total of about 600,000 persons in the United States(1). Its pathophysiology and optimal management have been the subject of conjecture and debate for more than a century. The issues surrounding left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction in HCM have evoked the most discussion.
