Abstract

Patients with HCM showed abnormal morphologic and electrical properties of the myocardium. The correlation between VLPs and IB at IVS and their relationship with nsVT suggests a link between textural and electrical nonhomogeneity of myocardial fibers, a potential substrate of nsVT in patients with HCM.
