Background Coronary perfusion pressure is a combination of proximal perfusion pressure and distal coronary artery pressure resulting from contraction and relaxation of the myocardium and the consequences on the microcirculation. Wave intensity analysis (WIA) defines dominant waves causing coronary filling during the cardiac cycle and allows separation of proximally and distally originating waves.Reduced myocardial perfusion has been shown to predict mortality in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM… CONTINUE READING
