Effect of hypertrophy on left ventricular diastolic function in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy


BACKGROUND.: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is characterized by asymmetric LV hypertrophy (LVH) and impairment in diastolic function. We assess the relationship between LVH and invasive indexes of diastolic function. METHODS.: 21 HCM patients underwent cardiac catheterization to assess pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, LV end-diastolic pressure… (More)
