BACKGROUND Although left ventricular (LV) morphology and function have been well studied in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), few data exist regarding the right ventricle. Accordingly, we studied right ventricular (RV) morphology and function and their effect on cardiovascular events in HCM using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. METHODS This retrospective study included 106 HCM patients (age 61.6 ± 14.5 years) examined using CMR imaging during January 2008 to September 2014. RV… CONTINUE READING
