Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Posted By Helen on October 15, 1998 at 18:14:08:







My 56-year-old father was just diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopia. He
has an enlarged septum, and this is causing problems in the left ventricle.
His cardiologist has suggested surgury to remove part of the septum and
perhaps repair the valve if needs be.  That is what my father told me.  I was
just wondering if you could provide me with more information about this
disease and also about the surgery to correct it.  How serious is the surgery?
What are the chances for successful surgery and how long does it take to
recover?  Any pertinent information would be wonderful!
Thank you very much,
Helen
