Adverse effect of increased left ventricular wall thickness on five year outcomes of patients with negative dobutamine stress

Abstract:

Background. To determine if patients without dobutamine induced left ventricular wall motion abnormalities (WMA) but an increased LV end-diastolic wall thickness (EDWT) exhibit a favorable cardiac prognosis. Results. Between 1999 and 2001, 175 patients underwent a dobutamine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance (DCMR) procedure utilizing gradient-echo cines. Participants had a LV ejection fraction <55% without evidence of an inducible WMA during peak dobutamine/atropine stress. After a...
