In addition, the US FDA approval for the GORE CARDIOFORM Septal Occluder was supported by positive results from the Gore REDUCE Clinical Study, which demonstrated its safety and efficacy with a Gore device plus antiplatelet therapy compared to antiplatelet therapy alone in patients with a PFO, revealed the company.
The mechanism may be associated with improper placement of the occluder on the tricuspid septal leaflets, migration of the occluder, shape memory of nithinol wires, or rupture of the chordae tendineae18.

Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a disease characterized by hypertrophy of the interventricular septum, obstruction of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT), and frequently, systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve.[1],[2],[3] Although medical intervention can provide relief of symptoms, a considerable number of patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy remain symptomatic, and in these participants, invasive interventions such as percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA) and modified Morrow septal myectomy (MMSM) are established treatment options.[4],[5] Extended septal myectomy can significantly relieve obstruction of LVOT and improve main complaints.[6],[7],[8] However, experience with myectomy is limited at many centers.
