The editors of Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions are proud to announce a new series presenting complex cases relevant to the clinical practice of interventional cardiology.

In each article, a panel of expert clinical discussants will guide the reader through a step-by-step process of clinical decision making for the presented case, first describing the clinical presentation and interpreting findings, then reviewing the relevant options and recommendations at each decision point--as they would occur in clinical practice--and finally, summarizing those decision points and the specific challenges that inform them and highlighting pertinent references from the literature.

The editors hope this series will provide readers with stimulating and engaging clinical scenarios that will generate discussion and help hone their clinical practice skills.

The inaugural article in this issue elaborates the clinical presentation, appropriate evaluation, and management of a patient with symptomatic obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
