  • Abstract
  • lt;¿0.05). Conclusions Highly trained endurance athletes showed a ten-fold increase in the prevalence of focal LGE as compared to control subjects, always confined to the hinge points. Additionally, those athletes with focal LGE demonstrated globally higher myocardial ECV values. This matrix remodelling and potential presence of myocardial fibrosis may be another feature of the athlete¿s heart, of which the clinical and prognostic significance remains to be determined.
