Recent echocardiography and angiographic studies have shown that hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) is often associated with abnormal left ventricular (LV) relaxation and an abnormal diastolic filling pattern [1–3]. It was the purpose of this study to examine whether these abnormalities are only typical for this special type of LV hypertrophy or whether they can be found in other forms of LV hypertrophy as well [4].
