Abstract

The management of symptomatic patients with hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy has generally included the use of beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers. Surgical treatment has been attempted for operable patients who have become refractory to medical therapy. However, associated complications, high mortality rate, and high recurrence of symptoms have shifted the treatment focus toward alternative therapy modalities. Recently, a DDD type pacemaker has been introduced as an alternative treatment option. We report a case of a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy treated with dual-chamber pacing.
