To investigate the differences in basal septal hypertrophy in elderly people between ventricular septal bulge(VSB) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy(HCM) based on myocardial strain analysis, A total of 13 VSB subjects, 9 HCM patients, and 8 healthy controls underwent cardiac MR scan. The strain parameters shows significant differences between VSB and HCM, and no significant differences between VSB and healthy controls. These findings may suggest a different underlying pathological change and provide a potential diagnostic clue in distinguishing VSB and HCM in elderly people.
