Abstract

Aims Diastolic tissue Doppler (TD) parameters allow prediction of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) at risk of sudden death, ventricular tachycardia, or cardiac arrest. The aim of this study was to assess the value of TD imaging in predicting the clinical course of patients with HC.
