BACKGROUND Data derived from stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) carry prognostic significance in young patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), but there are limited data on the utility of stress MPI in patients with HCM who are older. This study examined the prognostic significance of stress MPI in an adult population of patients with HCM. METHODS We examined 158 patients with HCM (aged 60 +/- 16 years, 61% men) who underwent exercise or pharmacologic stress MPI. Summed stress… CONTINUE READING
