Left Ventricular Hypertrophy is a thickening of the muscle wall of the left ventricle.
Abnormal thickening of the wall of the left ventricle (lower chamber) of the heart muscle. The ventricles have muscular walls in order to pump blood from the heart through the arteries, but LVH occurs when the ventricle must pump against abnormally high volume or pressure loads. LVH may accompany congestive heart failure (CHF).
Pathological increase in the bulk of the muscle in the largest pumping chamber of the heart, which delivers oxygen-rich blood from lungs to aorta.
Thickening of the heart's lower left chamber. LVH is often caused by high blood pressure, valvular disease, or coronary artery disease. In certain cases, LVH can be controlled or improved with medication and close follow-up.
When the heart muscle of the left ventricle becomes abnormally thickened.
Thickening of the left ventricle, the chamber of the heart that pumps blood to the body (see Hypertension).
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is the thickening of the myocardium (muscle) of the left ventricle of the heart. While ventricular hypertrophy can occur naturally as a reaction to aerobic exercise and strength training, it is most frequently referred to as a pathological reaction to cardiovascular disease.
