Recognition of Left Ventricular Outflow Obstruction
The purpose of this report is to summarize the syndromes of obstruction to left ventricular outflow. Emphasis is placed upon the correlations between clinical, hemodynamic, and angiographic features that permit an accurate diagnosis. An exact definition of the problem in each patient has become of great importance because of rapid advances in cardiac surgery, which now offers specific treatment for each of the syndromes described.
