Determinants of Worsening Long Term Functional Outcomes in Patients Undergoing Myectomy


About this study

The purpose of this study is to

  • Establish the long term functional capacity of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction

  • Establish patients who do not improve symptomatically on long term follow up

  • In patients, who do not have long term symptomatic improvement, ascertain predictors of poor outcomes.
