The systolic approximation of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve and hypertrophied, basal portion of the interventricular septum cause obstruction to the left ventricular outflow in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. A new strategy for the management of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy was used in a 37-year-old female patient, resisıant to drug treatment with a mcan resting gradient of 22 mmHg. The first septal branch of left anterior descending artery was occluded w ith an injection of absolute alcohol. After induced septal infaretion the mean gradient in the left ventricular outflow was reduced to 3 mmHg. The functional class was reduced from III to I, and the basa! septal infaretion was documented by myocardial perfusion scintigraphy. This is the first published case in Turkey, who showed a very promising function al improvement.
