Objective To analyze the correlation between septal branch characteristics and the prognosis of alcohol septal ablation ( ASA ) in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy . Methods The clinical , echocardiographic , angiographic and procedural characteristics were analyzed retrospectively in 55 patients.Good prognosis was defined as left ventricular outflow tract gradient decreased by 50%at long term follow-up.The characteristics of septal branch were analyzed in terms of QCA .Results There were no differences in the length of the ablated septal branch , sizes of the adjacent branches , distances between the septal branch and the ostia of the coronary arteries and the volume of alcoholo consumed ( all P>0.05).Compared with poor prognosis group (n =27), the diameter of the ablated septal branches were significantly larger in the good prognosis group ( n=28 ) [ ( 1.75 ±0.36 ) mm vs.( 1.48 ±0.41 ) mm, P=0.012].The distance between the ablated branch and its adjacent branch was farer in the good prognosis group [(18.80 ±10.20)mm vs.(13.04 ±6.65)mm, P=0.020].In multivariate analysis, the diameter of the ablated branch (OR 9.258,95%CI 1.427-60.069, P=0.020)and the distance between the ablated septal branch and its adjacent septal branch (OR 1.102,95% CI 1.002-1.213, P =0.046) were found to be independent risk factors for good prognosis of ASA .Conclusions The diameter of the ablated septal branch and the distance between its adjacent septal branch are associated with better prognosis of ASA .

We report a case of septal branch aneurysm. A 61-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of heart murmur. Septal branch aneurysm (25×15 mm) was diagnosed by echocardiography and coronary angiography, and followed up annually with multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT). Nine years later, another aneurysm proximal to the known aneurysm, which protruded above the epicardium, has rapidly dilated from 5 to 11 mm. We therefore performed closure of the orifice of the septal branch concomitant with bypass grafting ; left internal mammary artery to distal LAD. After the procedure, the aneurysm in the septum had completely collapsed. Her postoperative course was uneventful.
