Abstract
Guidelines recommend exercise stress echocardiogram (ESE) for patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) if a 50 mm Hg gradient is not present at rest or provoked with Valsalva or amyl nitrite, to direct medical and surgical management. However, no study has directly compared all 3 methods. We sought to evaluate efficacy and degree of provocation of left ventricular outflow gradients by ESE, and compare with Valsalva and amyl nitrite. In patients with HC between 2002 and 2015, resting echocardiograms and ESEs within 1 year were retrospectively reviewed. Gradients elicited by each provocation method were compared. Rest and ESE were available in 97 patients (mean age 54 ± 18 years, 57% male); 78 underwent Valsalva maneuver and 41 amyl nitrite provocation. Median gradients (interquartile range) were 10 mm Hg (7,19) at rest, 16 mm Hg (9,34) with Valsalva, 23 mm Hg (13,49) with amyl nitrite, and 26 mm Hg (13,58) with ESE. ESE and amyl nitrite were able to provoke obstruction (≥30 mm Hg) and severe obstruction (≥50 mm Hg) more frequently than Valsalva. In patients with resting gradient

Abstract Background Left ventricular outflow tract gradients are absent in an important proportion of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). However, the natural course of this important patient subgroup remains largely unresolved. Objectives The authors systematically employed exercise (stress) echocardiography to define those patients without obstruction to left ventricular outflow at rest and/or under physiological exercise and to examine their natural history and clinical course to...

Abstract Objectives This study sought to discover the key determinants of exercise capacity, maximal oxygen consumption (oxygen uptake [V o 2]), and ventilatory efficiency (ventilation/carbon dioxide output [VE/ Vco 2 ] slope) and assess the prognostic potential of metabolic exercise testing in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Background The intrinsic mechanisms leading to reduced functional tolerance in HCM are unclear. Methods The study sample included 156 HCM patients consecutively enrolled...

Background 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 study predictors of outcomes in HCM patients undergoing cardiopulmonary stress testing (CPT). Methods We studied 1,005 HCM patients (50 ± 14 years, 64% men, 77% on β-blockers) who underwent CPT with echocardiography. Clinical, echocardiographic, and exercise variables (peak oxygen consum...

Background Both resting echocardiography and exercise echocardiography produce variables predictive of outcomes in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The aim of the present study was to compare the respective value of resting and exercise echocardiographic parameters as indicators of clinical outcomes in patients with HCM. Methods Resting and exercise echocardiography was performed prospectively in patients with HCM evaluated at the HCM Competence Center of Bordeaux and followed up...

INTRODUCTION: A left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction assessment with a provoking test should be a routine part of the evaluation of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The aim of this study was to compare the utility of the Valsalva maneuver (VM) and sublingual spray application of isosorbide dinitrate (ISDN) for detection of an obstruction. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We prospectively evaluated 81 consecutive HCM patients without severe rest LVOT obstruction (defined as peak...

The rapid technological developments of the past decade and the changes in echocardiographic practice brought about by these developments have resulted in the need for updated recommendations to the previously published guidelines for cardiac chamber quantification, which was the goal of the joint writing group assembled by the American Society of Echocardiography and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging. This document provides updated normal values for all four cardiac chambers, i...

Abstract Background Isolated basal septal hypertrophy (IBSH) of the left ventricle (LV) is not a well understood phenomenon, particularly in the presence of concomitant left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO). We evaluated the prevalence of IBSH and compared those with and without LVOTO.

Objectives This study sought to assess long-term outcomes in asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) who underwent exercise echocardiography, without invasive therapies for relief of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. Background Many HCM patients present with LVOT obstruction, mitral regurgitation (MR), and diastolic dysfunction, often requiring invasive therapies for symptomatic relief.

Abstract Most patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) show a limited exercise capacity. A correlation between exercise tolerance and diastolic dysfunction has already been demonstrated. On the contrary, the role of rest-induced or exercise-induced obstruction as a determinant of exercise capacity is still open to debate. The aim of the present study was to analyse the exertional behaviour of patients with HCM presenting different left ventricle (LV) obstructive profiles. Thirty-five cons...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most frequent cardiac disease with genetic substrate, affecting about .2%-.5% of the population. The proper diagnosis is important for optimal management and follow-up. Echocardiography plays an essential role in the assessment of patients with HCM including diagnosis, screening, management formulation, prognosis, and follow up. It also helps to differentiate HCM from other diseases. The advancement of software and probe technology added many echo modalit...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a complex disease with significant implications for patients and the physicians called upon to care for them during the perioperative period. In this article, the 2020 American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology clinical practice guidelines for the evaluation and management of pediatric and adult patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are reviewed, with a particular focus on perioperative considerations for the anesthesiologist.

OBJECTIVES It is not uncommon to observe some discrepancy in hemodynamic values characterizing left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction preoperatively and in the operating room in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Interpretation of this discrepancy can be challenging. To clarify the extent of the discrepancy, the authors compared hemodynamic variables in patients undergoing septal myectomy at the time of preoperative and intraoperative evaluation.

Background Left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction is an important determinant of the management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). With a nationwide shortage of amyl nitrite in 2019, we implemented a 'repetitive squat-to-stand' manoeuvre to provoke LVOT obstruction during echocardiography. Case summary A 64-year-old female was referred with symptomatic HCM refractory to pharmacologic therapy. Transthoracic echocardiography showed minor LVOT obstruction with conventional imaging at ...
