Abstract

Regional differences in demographics, causation, and surgical approaches aresignificant for patients with DCM. Despite these variations, surgical decompression for DCM appearseffective in all regions. Observed differences in the extent of postoperative improvements amongthe regions should encourage the standardization of care across centers and the development of in-ternational guidelines for the management of DCM
