However, studies have shown slightly better gradient reduction with surgery. For example, it is not uncommon to start with beta-blockers, add calcium channel blockers and then consider disopyramide in those without contraindications to its use.
Patient choice should also be guided by local procedural results, and although both procedures are often not available at the same institution, care must be taken to refer patients to institutions that have demonstrated high efficacy and excellent safety in-hospital mortality 90%.
