(23) The VSD is utilized as part of the LVOT to direct blood from the left ventricle to the aorta.
In the presence of an LVOT obstruction, nitroglycerin or inotropes should be avoided as it can worsen obstruction [11].

Due to the size and location of the vegetation, she was referred for aortic valve replacement and resection of the LVOT vegetation.
For calculating the percentage value of HCM risk score SCD, we assessed the following parameters: episodes of nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (nsVT) in current Holter monitoring (defined as three or more consecutive ventricular beats > 120 beats per minute) and two-dimensional (2D) echocardiography with the assessment of the maximal left ventricular wall thickness in diastole (MWT), left atrial diameter (LAD), and maximal provocable left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradient [1].

Pulse-wave Doppler interrogation of the LVOT in the apical long axis view demonstrated a velocity-time integral (VTI) of 14.7 cm.
For this, there are a series of recommendations and standard measures that should be included in all echocardiographic studies, such as peak velocity, mean transvalvular pressure gradient, and left ventricular outflow tract diameter (LVOT) [61].
Among the Cardiovascular anomalies, VSD was seen in 45%, TOF in 20%, LVOT abnormal in 5%, Cardiomegaly in 5%, TGV in 10%, Small left heart syndrome in 5%, Small right heart syndrome in 5%, Single outflow tract was seen in 5%.
The proximal end of the composite valved graft was attached to the aortic wall tissue (cuff) or LVOT. In the Cuff Technique we used 8 to 9 mm Native Aortic cuff to reinforce our proximal anastomosis, while in non-cuff technique composite graft was directly anastomosed to LVOT.
M-mode, B-mode and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) ultrasound images were obtained by a Vevo 2100 ultrasound system (Visualsonics, Toronto, Canada) using 8 rats for each observation (total of 40 rats).
