    The goals of this analysis were to identify and count percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA) procedures and to estimate incidence rates of post-PTSMA cardiovascular outcomes in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). We distributed this request to six Sentinel Data Partners on August 5, 2022. The study period includes data from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2021. Report 1 contains data from January 1, 2014 to June 21, 2018. Report 2 contains data from June 22, 2018 to December 31, 2021.
