Possible Causes for Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in USA

  • Congenital Aortic Valve Stenosis
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Left ventricular hypertrophy is suggested by the presence of the fourth heart sound or an increased apical impulse. […] The electrocardiogram could reveal left ventricular hypertrophy, left bundle branch block, ST segment depression, and negative T waves.[1]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Diagnosis is based on the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy. […] Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy without an identifiable cause. […] Tissue Doppler imaging can differentiate hypertrophic cardiomyopathy from other causes of left ventricular hypertrophy[2]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    Left ventricular hypertrophy Patients are generally asymptomatic, except in the cases when LVH is pronounced enough to be able to lead to diastolic dysfunction and heart failure […] This is the reason why pathological changes in blood pressure might lead to the development of important cardiac diseases such as left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), coronary[3]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Initially, the outflow obstruction leads to compensatory left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) to normalize the pressure in the ventricle.[4]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    ECG typically indicates left ventricular hypertrophy. […] ventricular hypertrophy and dilated aorta. […] The volume overload, due to elevated pulse pressure and the systemic effects of neuroendocrine hormones causes left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH).[5]

  • Subvalvular Aortic Stenosis

    The electrocardiogram depicts the degree of underlying left ventricular hypertrophy in most patients.[6]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Left ventricular hypertrophy is calculated as the ratio of LV mass to cavity size; this ratio is decreased in persons with dilated cardiomyopathies. […] The electrocardiogram often shows sinus tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, premature ventricular complexes, nonspecific ST-T-wave abnormalities, Q waves, left ventricular hypertrophy[7]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    The following diagnostic modalities are used in the examination of PDA patients: Electrocardiography (ECG): A left ventricular hypertrophy may be demonstrated by voltage in[8]

  • Malignant Hypertension

    Coronary perfusion pressures are decreased by these factors, which also increase myocardial oxygen consumption, possibly leading to left ventricular hypertrophy.[9]

  • Fabry Disease

    Cardiovascular disorders such as hypertension and cardiomyopathies, most particularly, left ventricular hypertrophy, are very common in the sufferers of Fabry disease.[10]
