  • 4th Alcohol Ablation??????????

    My wife has had three (3) alcohol ablations in Houston and South Carolina by Dr. Spencer.

    The problem is that she has been experiencing periods of being out of breath . It is almost a daily occurrence.

    Has anybody else had a similar problem. I have never heard of dead heart tissue coming back to life?

      I can tell you that we have heard of similar situations in others post alcohol septal ablation patients. I would highly recommend a consult with an HCM center ASAP. If you need information on available centers please contact the office.
