BACKGROUND ST-segment depression is common in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). However, it is not clear whether exercise-induced ST-segment depression in patients with HCM and patent coronary arteries is associated with changes in left ventricular function. METHODS Left ventricular function was continuously evaluated in 53 patients with nonobstructive HCM during supine ergometer exercise with a radionuclide ventricular function monitor equipped with a cadmium telluride… CONTINUE READING
