Angiographic evidence of backward compression wave: systolic compression of septal perforators in a child with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Intracoronary wave intensity analysis in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy has shown a large backward compression wave due to compressive deformation of the intramyocardial coronary arteries in systole. The authors describe the angiographic evidence of this backward compression wave, which has not been described in this physiological context and can be a marker of poor prognosis.
