Myocardial fibrosis evaluated by Look-Locker and late gadolinium enhancement magnetic resonance imaging in apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: association with ventricular tachyarrhythmia and risk factors.

Abstract

PURPOSE To evaluate the distribution and extent of myocardial fibrosis identified by either contrast-enhanced Look-Locker or late gadolinium enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (LGE MRI) and their relationships between ventricular tachyarrhythmia or risk factors in apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (APH). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five APH patients… (More)
