Abstract

Transaortic extended septal myectomy is the most reliable method for septal reduction for symptomatic patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. In addition, surgical management of nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is possible for selected patients with diastolic heart failure and small left ventricular end-diastolic cavity dimensions. These procedures, however, are performed infrequently in many centers, and trainees may not be exposed to the preoperative evaluation and intraoperative management of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. In this paper, we review what we believe are the central features for creating a successful program for septal myectomy and detail our strategies to optimize instruction in these techniques for residents and fellows.
