This study establishes the clinical value of the recently introduced handgrip-apexcardiographic test (HAT) as an additional tool for distinguishing exercise-induced diastolic abnormalities in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients from those in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). This stress test reliably assessing differences in diastolic indices during handgrip between 305 healthy volunteers and 39 patients with CAD without prior infarction as well as 17 patients with HCM showed… CONTINUE READING
