Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are frequently evaluated in the cardiac catheterization laboratory to assess baseline hemodynamics, left ventricular to aortic gradients, and coronary anatomy. Imaging performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory can also provide important diagnostic and physiology information. In this lesson, we will review the typical findings on left ventriculography, review the physiology of systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve, and review the clinical and hemodynamic profiles associated with acquired left ventricular outflow track obstruction.
Learners participate in the interactive learning modules by correctly answering multiple choice questions dispersed throughout. Learners will be prompted to try again, if a question is answered incorrectly.The course will open in a new tab – to exit the course, simply close the tab.
