How to Assess the Level of Obstruction with Echocardiography in Patients with HCM

This video from ASE’s Microlesson Series on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) answers the questions: – Is obstruction isolated to the LVOT in HCM? – What images do you need to obtain/review to accurately define presence and severity of LVOT obstruction in HCM? – How can the CW Doppler profiles obtained help you to understand the origin and severity of obstruction?
