This causes immediate vessel occlusion and localised myocardial infarction. The infarct reduces septal motion and thickness, enlarges the left ventricular outflow tract, and may decrease mitral valve systolic anterior motion, with consequent reduction in the gradient of the left ventricular outflow tract. Over the next few months the infarcted septum undergoes fibrosis and shrinkage, which may result in further symptomatic improvement. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia with sedation as required.

The systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral valve leaflet also causes mitral regurgitation. Treatment Although hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is often asymptomatic, common symptoms are dyspnoea, angina, and exertional syncope, which may be related to the gradient in the left ventricular outflow tract. The aim of treatment of symptomatic patients is to improve functional disability, reduce the extent of obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract, and improve diastolic filling. Treatments include negatively inotropic drugs such as blockers, verapamil, and disopyramide.
