Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy associated with Friedreich's ataxia is progressive, and there are few, if any, effective treatments available at present. This case report describes a Friedreich's ataxia patient who had a septal myectomy for the management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with improved symptoms over a 7-year period. This suggests that septal myectomy may be a viable option to relieve symptoms and interrupt progression of heart disease in appropriately selected Friedreich's ataxia patients.
