Abstract Alcohol septal ablation has recently been described as a safe alternative to surgical myectomy for treatment of symptomatic patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. We describe a case where percutaneous myectomy was performed by mechanically occluding the septal artery using thrombogenic floppy tips of used PTCA wires instead of alcohol, as the anatomy of the septal artery was not suitable for alcohol ablation.
