BACKGROUND Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging with late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) can identify areas of myocardial fibrosis in vivo in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The aim of this study was to examine the association between clinical-morphological variables, risk factor for sudden death, and LGE findings in a consecutive, unselected population of HCM patients. METHODS From January 2005 to August 2009, 124 HCM patients (53 ± 17 years, 86 men) were prospectively… CONTINUE READING
