Surgical Management for Systolic Anterior Motion (SAM) of the Mitral Valve in Obstructive Hypertrophic Myopathy
In patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction can be created by the hypertrophic interventricular septum (IVS) as well as systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the anterior mitral leaflet (AML). Sufficient septal myectomy is a fundamental surgical technique to treat LVOT obstruction, however, direct surgical management for SAM is another key aspect. Besides the hypertrophic IVS, mitral valve, subvalvular apparatus, and papillary muscle may play important role for SAM and several surgical techniques have been proposed to treat SAM in literature.
