Left ventricular outflow obstruction.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, USA.


Patients with LVOT obstruction require lifelong follow-up because the obstruction may be progressive or recurrent. Several procedures are usually required, either by surgery or by interventional cardiac catheterization, to repair or palliate the obstructive lesion. The treatment of these patients continues to evolve, and, despite the complexity of these patients' lesions, the morbidity and mortality rates have decreased and are expected to decrease further in the future.
