Totally Endoscopic Septal Myectomy in a Patient with Aortic Prothesis
and Complicated with Lymphoma
Abstract The Morrow procedure which uses a median sternotomy with the
left ventricle and septum accessed by the aortic valve through a
vertical aortotomy is the current standard procedure for left
ventricular outflow tract obstruction in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
However, this approach may be limited in patients who have previously
undergone aortic valve replacement. Here, we present a patient who
complicated with lymphoma underwent endoscopic septal myectomy to
preserve the previously implanted aortic prosthesis. Keywords:
