Clinical Trial Summary

Heart failure with preserved ejection and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are common diseases and often associated with transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (TTR-CM), especially in elderly people. Nevertheless, research of TTR-CM is recommended in patients with ventricular hypertrophy without other cause such as valvular disease or hypertension. Therefore, the exact prevalence of TTR-CM remains unknown. We aim to determine the prevalence of TTR-CM in patients with ventricular hypertrophy and aged ≥ 60 years old, hospitalized in our cardiology department (CHU de Poitiers) by performing bone scintigraphy and research of AL amyloidosis.
