177 Possible Causes for Fibrosis of Left Ventricle

  • Myocardial Fibrosis

    At autopsy, there was an extensive myocardial fibrosis of the left ventricle in addition to the almost total absence of the myocardium of the right ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Cardiomyopathy in cystic fibrosis (CF) is an unusual heart disease, mainly characterized by a multifocal fibrosis of the left ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A catheter study revealed the absence of systolic contraction of the right ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Contusion

    CMR images documented the persistence of severe regional dysfunction involving the left ventricle, associated with a large area of post-contrast myocardial enhancement (representing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] necrosis and/or fibrosis).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

  • Endomyocardial Fibrosis

    Postmortem examination revealed residual fibrosis of the left ventricle (LV), mild endocardial fibrous deposition of the right ventricle, and severe concentric, symmetrical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] • We recently saw a patient with endomyocardial fibrosis of the left ventricle, with aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valve involvement.[jamanetwork.com] We present here a novel doughnut appearance of left ventricle on angiogram.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Necropsy was performed on five patients and fragments of left ventricle myocardium and lung were harvested for histopathological and immunohistochemical studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The myocardium exhibited fibrosis areas where the myocytes were completely or partially replaced by collagen fibers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Ischemic CM is defined as dysfunction of the left ventricle as a result of a chronic lack of oxygen due to coronary artery disease.[radiologyassistant.nl] ", and involvement of the left ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ventricle with normal or decreased wall thickness ( sarcomeres are added in series ) .[amboss.com]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    BACKGROUND: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disease was characterised by left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), myocardial fibrosis, fiber disarray.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a primary myocardial disorder with an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance that is characterized by hypertrophy of the left ventricles[genome.jp] The short-axis systolic function is important in left ventricle function. METHODS: Forty one healthy subjects and 37 HCM patients were enrolled for this research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Improved cardiac myocyte survival and cardiac function Decreased apoptosis, inflammation, and left ventricle remodeling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This mechanism allows significant architectural changes to the composition, shape and contractile function of the myocardium, especially in the left ventricle, which is the[emedicine.com] Decreased fibrosis, apoptosis, and infarct size Increased expression of antiapoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidative genes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Posterior Myocardial Infarction

    This mechanism allows significant architectural changes to the composition, shape and contractile function of the myocardium, especially in the left ventricle, which is the[emedicine.medscape.com] Typical MI initially manifests as coagulation necrosis that is ultimately followed by a healing process characterized by formation of myocardial scarring, known as myocardial fibrosis[emedicine.medscape.com]
