antiobiotics for dental work, patient internal defibrillator
My husband, age 70, has hcm and was fitted with a defibrillator in Feb. 08.  He has always taken prophylactic antibiotics prior to routine dental work such as cleaning.  We have read that the new protocol no longer requires this but we are concerned due to the recent defibrillator installation. His cardiologist says he doesn't need the antibiotics.  What do you think?

Hi,
I have HOCM and read the same thing. I think we took the antibiotics because of our hearts not for the ICD.  I had to take high dosages of antibiotics before my implant. Have you checked with the HCMA ? They would have the best advice for people with HCM.
