HCM patients may be sensitive to rapid volume changes with a drop in cardiac output. Digitalis should generally be avoided unless AF or systolic dysfunction develops. Therapy-refractory patients with severe outflow tract obstruction should be managed by interventional strategies such as alcohol ablation of the septum or surgical myectomy. Long-term follow-up after surgical myectomy has shown excellent results8, but ventricular remodelling with dilatation of the left ventricle may become a problem in 15–20% of all patients.
Pressure wire. • Methods to assess plaque vulnerability. • Angioscopy. • Brachytherapy. • Puncture site closing devices. • Intra-aortic balloon pump. • Percutaneous cardiopulmonary support. • Distal protection devices. Moreover, relying on the haemodynamic significance of a coronary lesion is a misjudgement. Flow reduction by a lesion causes angina (which is a nuisance rather than a threat) but it only feebly predicts whether hard end points such as infarction or death are likely to be caused by this lesion later on, let alone at what point in time this may occur.
