PEREZ SORIANO, Patricia et al. Obstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract on the obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: Case report and literature review. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2008, vol.78, n.1, pp. 87-94. ISSN 1405-9940.
OHC is a disorder with a broad spectrum of morphological, functional and genetics abnormalities. The Obstruction on the Right Ventricular Outflow (OHCRV) is not expected most of the time, that's way it is not usually detected and rarely mentioned in the cardiological literature. Its clinical presentation may include basically systemic venous hypertension symptoms that come with the hypertrophic cardyomiopathy manifestations. The manifestations of an apparent Right Ventricular Hypertrophic (RVH) in the ECG are probably due to the huge septal vector that activates the septum with a major thickness. The clinical confirmation of the obstruction on the OHCRV produced by a considerable asymmetric septal hypertrophic is easily shown with bidimensional an Doppler echocardiography.
