To identify the determinants of left atrial (LA) dilation for patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM), first we validated LA volume determination by real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography using magnetic resonance imaging in patients. Subsequently, real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography and 2-dimensional Doppler echocardiography were performed in 60 patients with HOCM and in 17 age-matched control subjects. LA volumes and left ventricular (LV) filling pressures were… CONTINUE READING
