Abstract:We report a 13-year follow-up of a patient who underwent both myectomy and septal ablation due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy caused by a cardiac myosin-binding protein C gene mutation. After myectomy the patient again developed significant septal hypertrophy at the operated septal area with a need for a second interventional therapy. This exceptional case underscores the remarkable ability of the heart muscle to show a continuous hypertrophic process over many years.
