  • Obstruction paper coming soon!

    A significant paper is set to be published in the New England Journal of Medicine on or about January 24, 2003 -
    This paper will shed new light on the role of obstruction in those with HCM. Those who attended last years HCMA's members meeting heard a sneak preview of the data last June from Dr. Marty Maron, now the rest world will hear the data.
    Membership has its privileges!
    I will post the citation as soon as it is available.
    Regards,
    Lisa

      The Mighty Marons

      Hi,

      Martin Maron, MD is Barry Maron's son. Dr. MM is at Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston at their new HCM Clinic.

      Dr. BM is Medical Advisor to the HCMA and at the Mineeapolis Heart Institute.

      AND there is _another_ Maron son who is also going to be a cardiologist and he is around here somewhere, but I don't know exactly. Lisa knows. Lisa?
