BACKGROUND Presence of delayed enhancement (DE) on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is associated with worse clinical outcomes in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We investigated the relationship between DE on CMR and myocardial ischemia in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. METHODS AND RESULTS Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients (n=47) underwent CMR for assessment of DE and vasodilator stress ammonia positron emission tomography to quantify myocardial blood flow and coronary flow reserve. The summed… CONTINUE READING
