A genetic condition in which the muscle of the heart is abnormally
large in the absence of an apparent cause. When the muscle of the left
ventricle of the heart becomes thicker than normal, blood flow is
obstructed to the rest of the body.
This unusual procedure, known as a "domino" transplant, occurs when one recipient receives a heart-lung transplant from a deceased donor, while the existing healthy heart of the heart-lung recipient is given to a second patient. The rare procedure has only been performed eight times at Stanford, last in 1994.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
