17887Re: Hotspur's cardiology report
- Dec 3, 2004Hi. The second echo report says stuff about biatrial enlargement and
a resloution of the dynamic LV outflow obstruction on the beta
blocker but doesn't specifically say rcm. The third and fourth
reports say "the study demonstrates the presence of mild to
moderately severe and extremely stable restrictive cardiomyopathy"
and the fifth one says "the overall evaluation demonstrates the
presence of relatively stable and well compensated restrictive
cardiomyopathy". So maybe it didn't start out as RCM.
Thank you for your help. I'm gonna just keep reading about this so
at least I can understand it better.
