Abstract

Septal myectomy with a noncontact carbon dioxide laser (or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is described. This technique results in improved visualization of the septum as the laser beam is held outside the heart and the resecting laser beam can always be clearly seen. We believe this approach provides an improved method of septal myectomy in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
