To determine predictors of exercise benefit in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy after operative relief of left ventricular (LV) outflow tract obstruction, 30 patients underwent catheterization and exercise testing before and 6 months after operation, and hemodynamic measurements were obtained. The increase in maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) during treadmill exercise testing was chosen as an index of exercise benefit. Univariate analysis showed a significant positive correlation of operative change in VO2max with preoperative LV end-diastolic and pulmonary arterial wedge pressures, operative change in exercise duration, and operative reductions in LV end-diastolic and pulmonary arterial wedge pressures and resting LV outflow tract gradient, and a significant negative correlation with preoperative VO2max and percent predicted VO2max. Multivariate analysis by stepwise linear regression of only significant univariate variables selected only preoperative percent predicted VO2max, and operative reduction in LV end-diastolic pressure and resting LV outflow tract gradient as significant predictors of postoperative change in VO2max. Stepwise regression analysis, applied only to preoperative exercise and catheterization hemodynamic variables, selected only preoperative percent predicted VO2max and preoperative LV end-diastolic pressure as predictors of improvement in exercise capacity. Thus, patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, after failing medical therapy, are most likely to demonstrate improvement in exercise capacity if preoperative exercise testing demonstrates limited exercise capacity and if surgery achieves reduction in elevated resting LV outflow tract gradients and LV filling pressures.
