    HEADLINE: HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY: Researchers discuss treatments for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

    BODY:
    Researchers discuss treatments for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

    According to recent research from the United States, "Our understanding of
    the pathophysiology of obstruction in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy has evolved
    since initial descriptions in the late 1950s.

    "This review addresses the cause of obstruction, from early ideas that a
    muscular outflow tract sphincter was the cause, through the discovery of
    systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve, to current understanding
    that flow drag, the pushing force of flow, is the dominant hydrodynamic
    mechanism for SAM," wrote M.V. Sherrid and colleagues, Columbia University, St.
    Luke's Roosevelt Hospital Center.

    "The continuing redesign and modification of surgical procedures to relieve
    outflow obstruction have corresponded to ideas about the cause of this
    condition. In this review we discuss the evolution of surgical procedures to
    relieve obstruction and review modern surgical approaches," the researchers
    added.

    "Medical and nonsurgical methods for reducing obstruction are reviewed, as
    well as efforts to prevent sudden arrhythmic cardiac death. Echocardiography has
    become central to understanding this complex phenomenon, and for clinical
    diagnosis, operative planning and intraoperative management," the researchers
    concluded.

    Sherrid and colleagues published their study in the Annals of Thoracic
    Surgery (Obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: Echocardiography,
    pathophysiology, and the continuing evolution of surgery for obstruction. Ann
    Thorac Surg, 2003;75(2):620-632).

    To subscribe to the journal Annals of Thoracic Surgery, contact the
    publisher: Elsevier Science Inc., 360 Park Avenue South, New York, NY
    10010-1710, USA.

    The information in this article comes under the major subject area of
    Cardiothoracic Surgery.

    This article was prepared by Medical Devices & Surgical Technology Week
    editors from staff and other reports.

        Bob - The citation for the article is in the abstract that Tim posted. I would think the fastest way to get a copy of the article is to call any local medical library and see if you can get a photocopy of the article in the journal of the Annals of Thoracic Surgery.

        Sherrid and colleagues published their study in the Annals of Thoracic
        Surgery (Obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: Echocardiography,
        pathophysiology, and the continuing evolution of surgery for obstruction. Ann Thorac Surg, 2003;75(2):620-632). If you ask the author, you will probably never get it.

              Lisa,

              A couple of weeks ago, I e-mailed you my address for a copy of the above listed article. I have not received anything as of yesterday. Did you manage to send it out?
