A patient with idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis and normal coronary arteries, with dynamic electrocardiographic changes resembling acute myocardial ischemia, is presented. A definite association between the electrocardiographic changes and the idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis cannot be absolutely confirmed; however, the findings demonstrate the broad spectrum of electrocardiographic presentation in this ...
Wanderman K L - - 1979
A case of combined hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and mitral annular calcification is reported. The characteristic features of both entities were clearly demonstrated by thorough noninvasive examinations. It is proposed that the association of the two conditions is not coincidental but that mitral annular calcification, by narrowing of the left ventricular ...
Pichard A D - - 1977
Thirteen patients with idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis were compared with two groups of subjects: 10 patients with chest pain, normal coronary arteries and a normal left ventricle, and 10 patients with left ventricular hypertrophy. Five of the latter had aortic stenosis and five had idiopathic left ventricular hypertrophy. Coronary arteriography ...
