Myocardial perfusion (MP) may differ in physiologic and pathologic left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). We compared MP in LVH in elite athletes and patients with hypertension with healthy, age-matched subjects. We included 12 rowers with LVH, 19 patients with hypertension with LVH, and 2 age-matched groups of healthy subjects (n = 11 and n = 12). The left ventricular mass index was determined echocardiographically. MP was measured by N-13 ammonia positron emission tomography. The maximal… CONTINUE READING
