The clinical features of primary myocardial disease (PMD) were presented in a previous communication (1). With the advent of cardiac catheterization, the altered hemodynamic patterns occurring during heart failure have been studied (2-4). However, there have been few hemodynamic studies in PMD (5-13). The purpose of this study is to investigate the altered hemodynamics in PMD during clinical heart failure, following restoration of cardiac compensation, and at various intervals during the natural course of the disease.
Twenty-two patients were studied by right heart catheterization on 34 occasions. This investigation was performed in the usual manner. The mid-thoracic
