Supplementary Material

Supplementary Material: 42 year old female with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and acute pulmonary edema. Transthoracic echocardiography (parasternal long axis (Video A) and short axis (Video B)), demonstrate asymmetric septal thickening in keeping with the diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and normal systolic function. Diastolic parameters were abnormal with an E/E' of 19 mmHg indicating elevated left atrial pressure. There was no resting left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradient. There was a mild provocable LVOT gradient to 33 mmHg with administration of amyl nitrate.
