Seniors Do Well After Myectomy

A recent study of Medicare patients conducted by doctors at the Cleveland Clinic found that senior citizens who underwent septal myectomy had better long term survival and did not need repeat procedures compared to those who underwent septal alcohol ablation.

And, despite the overwhelming evidence that septal reduction procedures performed at high volume centers have superior outcomes, 70% of septal reduction procedures are still being performed at low volume centers.

We need to spread the word that the success of septal reduction procedures is highly dependent on the experience and volume of the center!
