Abstract

Hemodynamic and angiographic observations are described in an adult patient with the contracted form of endocardial fibroelastosis. Of note were the findings of elevated diastolic pressures in the left and right side of the heart, decreased left ventricular compliance, mitral regurgitation and distortion of the usual left and right ventricular angiographic anatomy, presenting a picture indistinguishable from that of a primary cardiac neoplasm. These findings are related to those described in children.
