      Our HCMA office can help you the most with your question. I just wanted to mention to you and to others that the alcohol septal ablation is good for some patients, but most patients would be better off with a myectomy to remove the obstruction. There is more long-term data with a myectomy and there seems to be fewer instances of the need to have the procedure done again with a myectomy. That said, the ablation is the right procedure for some people who can't have a myectomy for whatever reason. It does have its place as a treatment option. The key is to have consultations with physicians who know enough about HCM to recommend the one that's the best suited for YOU.
