Plasma metalloproteinase levels and left ventricular remodeling in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in patients with an identical mutation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although it has been reported that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are associated with left ventricular (LV) remodeling in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the impact of plasma MMP levels in patients with HCM is somewhat vague. METHODS AND SUBJECTS Plasma levels of MMP-2, MMP-9, and clinical/echocardiographic… (More)
