Previous studies have demonstrated that high-dose allopurinol is able to regress left ventricular (LV) mass in cohorts with established cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to assess whet...
Pressure overload-induced left ventricular myocardial hypertrophy (LVH) regresses after pressure unloading. However, distinct structural alterations become less reversible during the progression of LV...
Right ventricular (RV) failure in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is associated with increased hospitalizations, worsening functional clas...
Cardiac involvement in Danon disease typically manifests as left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and ventricular preexcitation. This study aimed to identify patients with Danon disease among patients wi...
Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In addition to arteriosclerosis (arterial stiffness) and atherosclerosis, left ventricular hypertr...
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) increases the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with high blood pressure, compared to those without LVH. Reduction of left vent...
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of amlodipine plus valsartan in patients with hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy
The study hypothesis is that a quantitative index can be derived from Tc-99m myocardial perfusion scans that accurately identifies the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy and pulmonar...
To review the accuracy of electrocardiography in screening for left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with hypertension.
- To evaluate Blood Pressure (BP) reduction to the targeted values (BP ≤ 140/90 mm Hg in non-diabetic patients, and ≤ 130/80 mm Hg in diabetic patients). - To emphasize and t...
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.
Diabetes complications in which VENTRICULAR REMODELING in the absence of CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS and hypertension results in cardiac dysfunctions, typically LEFT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION. The changes also result in myocardial hypertrophy, myocardial necrosis and fibrosis, and collagen deposition due to impaired glucose tolerance.
Enlargement of the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart. This increase in ventricular mass is attributed to sustained abnormal pressure or volume loads and is a contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Enlargement of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This increase in ventricular mass is often attributed to PULMONARY HYPERTENSION and is a contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
