Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy is an inheritable cardiac disease and manifested in increased left ventricular outflow tract gradient. In most cases, basal septal hypertrophy and systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral valve leaflet are the key components of the left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. The goal of septal reduction therapy, which is a widely accepted treatment modality, is to remove this obstruction. Although myectomy is a well-established and effective surgical technique for the septal reduction therapy, transcoronary alcohol septal ablation is an alternative therapy for the patients, who refuse surgery or who are not suitable for a surgical intervention. Previously, a new septal reduction method was described in the literature. In this case report, we report the successful treatment of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy in a 57-year-old female with the new septal reduction technique.
