HOCM (Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy) is an abnormal heart condition where the myocardium (heart muscular tissue) gets thickened. It can lead to sudden cardiac arrest, life-threatening arrhythmias, clinical heart failure, or mitral regurgitation. Surgical (septal) myectomy is a type of open-heart surgery (where the chest is cut open to operate on muscles, arteries, and valves) performed in Delhi by Dr. Sujay Shad, an expert heart surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital that removes the excessively enlarged interventricular septum (muscular wall separating the left and right ventricle) of the heart. The outflow tract is widened from the left ventricle to the aorta (the large artery that carries blood from the heart to other body parts), thereby relieving the obstruction in the blood outflow tract. This results in better working of the heart and improvement in the quality of life. To know more about Open Heart and HOCM Surgery in Delhi , book a consultation with Dr. Sujay Shad today.
