Myocardial hypertrophy may influence coronary hemodynamics variably. Therefore, coronary blood flow (CBF) (gas chromatic argon technique) was determined in patients with left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, with or without dilatation, associated with exclusively normal coronary arteriogram: 12 patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOC) (LV mass to volume (M/V) ratio: 3.66 + 0.52 g/ml), 22 patients with hypertensive heart disease due to essential hypertension (EH) (LV M/V ratio: 2… CONTINUE READING
