544 Possible Causes for Biventricular Hypertrophy, Impaired Exercise Tolerance, Systolic Thrill at Lower Left Sternal Border

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    A large PDA may be associated with signs of biventricular hypertrophy (BVH) and in those with pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) may be present.[patient.info] In the patient with a large ductus arteriosus and elevated pulmonary artery pressure, signs of right atrial enlargement and biventricular hypertrophy are frequently present[doi.org] ECG is often normal in small or moderate PDA but there may be signs of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH).[patient.info]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    […] or biventricular hypertrophy.[lifeinthefastlane.com] In both patients, echocardiography showed LV hypertrophy, biventricular systolic dysfunction, and a large amount of pericardial effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The mean heart weight was 393 g (range, 240-590 g), and 10 cases had relative heart hypertrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    Biventricular cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure in the presence of a pre-existing atrial septal defect (ASD) are a rare association of primary aldosteronism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hypertrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Present findings suggest that aldosteronism contributes to cardiac remodelling and biventricular hypertrophic changes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
