Catheterization Studies Indicating Latent Congestive Heart Failure
In an attempt to explain the electrocardiographic and other cardiac abnormalities in patients with muscular dystrophy, hemodynamic studies by right heart catheterization were done on 12 patients with muscular dystrophy. The study indicated the presence of latent congestive failure in some patients. An attempt to explain the abnormal QRS complexes and leads from the right side of the precordium in some of those patients is also made.
