    HEADLINE: CARDIOMYOPATHY: Stepwise Doppler work-up clarifies the underlying
    hemodynamic mechanisms

    Stepwise Doppler work-up clarifies the underlying hemodynamic mechanisms of
    hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

    According to recent research published in the Echocardiography-a Journal of
    Cardiovascular Ultrasound and Allied Techniques, "A case of hypertrophic
    cardiomyopathy is presented with a restrictive mitral filling pattern but
    predominant systolic pulmonary vein flow velocities.

    "A stepwise Doppler work-up including color M-mode, Doppler tissue imaging of
    the mitral annulus velocity and loading manipulations could clarify the
    underlying hemodynamic mechanisms," wrote B.R. Paelinck and colleagues,
    University Hospital Antwerp, Department of Cardiology.

    The researchers concluded: "The Doppler data were correlated with invasive

    Paelinck and colleagues published their study in Echocardiography-a Journal
    of Cardiovascular Ultrasound and Allied Techniques (Doppler estimation of
    filling pressures in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Echocardiogr-j
    Cardiovasc Ult, 2003;20(2):163-165).
