Asymmetric septal hypertrophy in patients with coronary artery disease
A total of 5128 consecutive patients with proven diagnosis of CAD were examined. There were 2469 patients with left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy (LVH) (48.2%), among whom 297 (5.8%) had ASH (echocardiographic ventricular septum thickness to LV posterior wall thickness ratio ≥1.3).
Conclusion In patients with CAD, ASH is associated with significant atherosclerosis of RCA and LCA, and more severe clinical manifestations of CAD and impaired LV function.
