OBJECTIVES The aims of this study included performing a meta-analysis of the predictive value of late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) for adverse events and death in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). BACKGROUND CMR with LGE can identify areas of myocardial fibrosis; however, controversies remain regarding the independent prognostic importance of LGE-CMR in HCM. METHODS We searched PubMed and Web of Science for studies that investigated the prognostic value of… CONTINUE READING
