We report the results of atrial fibrillation surgery in 10 patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is the largest case series to date. The Maze procedure, with concomitant septal myectomy if indicated, appears to be feasible in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and refractory atrial fibrillation.
