Cardiopulmonary Responses and Prognosis in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: A Potential Role for Comprehensive Noninvasive Hemodynamic Assessment.

The study sought to discover the key determinants of exercise capacity, maximal oxygen consumption (oxygen uptake [Vo2]), and ventilatory efficiency (ventilation/carbon dioxide output [VE/Vco2] slope)...

Predictors of long-term outcomes in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy undergoing cardiopulmonary stress testing and echocardiography.

Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) have exercise intolerance due to left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction, mitral regurgitation, and left ventricular dysfunction. We sought to...

Impact of Global and Segmental Hypertrophy on Two-Dimensional Strain Derived from Three-Dimensional Echocardiography in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Comparison with Healthy Subjects.

Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) present unusual myocardial mechanics. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of hypertrophy on global and regional two-dimensional (2D) strain d...

Characteristic myocardial strain identified in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy subjects with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction using a novel multi-layer transthoracic echocardiography technique.

In order to evaluate compensatory mechanisms in hypertrophic-cardiomyopathy (HCM) subjects with preserved left-ventricular (LV) ejection-fraction (EF), we measured myocardial percentage endocardial st...

Electrocardiographic evolution in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who develop a left ventricular apical aneurysm.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients with apical aneurysm have a largely unfavourable clinical course, and are often unrecognised because echocardiography is limited in the assessment of the lef...

Study of Exercise Training in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

The investigators propose a pilot randomized controlled trial to determine the safety and potential benefits of moderate intensity exercise in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Th...

Assessment of Wall Thickness in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Assessment of wall thickness in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is of diagnostic and prognostic importance given its known association with sudden cardiac death. However, data regarding...

Perhexiline Therapy in Patients With Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a relatively common inherited heart muscle disease. Many patients experience symptoms of breathlessness, fatigue and chest pain. These symptoms are no...

Effect of GS-6615 on Exercise Capacity in Subjects With Symptomatic Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

This study will evaluate the effect of GS-6615 on exercise capacity, quality of life, and safety and tolerability of GS-6615 in participants with symptomatic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (H...

Use of Magnetic Field Mapping in the Evaluation of Patients With Hypertrophic Heart Disease (Thick Heart Muscle)

The purpose of this research study is to further establish the diagnostic use of magnetocardiography (MCG) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The use of MCG has not been ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal dominant inherited form of HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY. It results from any of more than 50 mutations involving genes encoding contractile proteins such as VENTRICULAR MYOSINS; cardiac TROPONIN T; ALPHA-TROPOMYOSIN.

A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).

A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
