The differentiation of primary dilated cardiomyopathy from ischemic cardiomyopathy, though important, is difficult clinically and may require coronary angiography or metabolic imaging. Both patient groups have severe left ventricular dysfunction and severe wall motion abnormality. This study examined the differences in right ventricular performance between the two groups. There were 90 patients with a left ventricular ejection fraction less than 30% who had coronary angiography and multigated… CONTINUE READING
