PMID:  16343166     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The echocardiographic diagnosis of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can be difficult in patients with poor acoustic windows. However, contrast-enhanced echocardiography can provide better images in these patients and lead to the correct diagnosis. We present a patient with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who was diagnosed using contrast-enhanced echocardiography. The use of contrast-enhanced echocardiography for the diagnosis of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in patients with poor acoustic windows is discussed and the experience in the literature reviewed.
