After disappointing results with non-surgical measures there is now a move back towards surgical left ventricular outflow tract resection as a treatment of choice for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. The traditional operation presents various technical difficulties and occasionally disappointing results. Using a diathermy loop to resect the hypertrophied outflow tract has provided a much more convenient and reliable technique. This paper describes an instrument incorporating all the features of this technique (Left ventricular resectoscope).
