Abnormal coronary flow pattern and coronary vasodilator reserve have been identified in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) using invasive techniques. The characteristics of coronary flow velocity and coronary flow reserve were evaluated by noninvasive-recording of coronary flow velocity in the distal portion of the left anterior descending coronary artery in 7 patients with HCM and 7 normal subjects using transthoracic color Doppler echocardiography. Coronary flow velocity was… CONTINUE READING
