In the present issue of Revista Española de Cardiología, Stöllberger et al analyze the relation between gender and clinical, and morphologic characteristics in one of the broadest-ranging series of patients with left ventricular noncompaction in the literature.1 From 36 933 transthoracic echocardiograms performed over a period of 10 years, they identified(More)
BACKGROUND The R820W mutation in the MYBPC3 gene has been associated with the development of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in rag-doll cats, but had not been described in humans. AIMS To describe the phenotype associated with the R820W mutation identified in a human family. METHODS The R820W was identified by direct sequencing of the MYBPC3 gene in(More)
OBJECTIVES Previous studies have shown the usefulness of dobutamine echocardiography to differentiate dilated cardiomyopathy (DC) from ischemic left ventricular dysfunction (ILVD), but no studies have been made using exercise echocardiography (EE). We hypothesized that most patients with DC have some contractile reserve and experience an increase in left(More)
During the last 20 years, the principal objective in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy research has been the refinement of algorithms for the identification and treatment of patients at risk of sudden death. Sudden death is an important problem in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, with an incidence of 4-6% in referral populations and approximately 1% in non-referral(More)
