Possible Causes for Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG in USA

  • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is essentially an increase in myocardial mass. The most common cause is hypertension. Current evidence indicates that if untreated, LVH has high morbidity and mortality from heart disease and stroke. Most patients with mild or moderate LVH have no symptoms. However, if the LVH is…[1]

  • Kawasaki Disease
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Kawasaki disease (Kawasaki syndrome, mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome) is a systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology that primarily affects infants and children. Symptoms include a fever lasting more than 5 days, macular-papular erythematous rash, adenopathy, bilateral conjunctival injection and swelling of the…[2]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG
  • Rheumatic Heart Disease
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Rheumatic heart disease refers to a group of heart disorders that develop as a complication of rheumatic fever. It is one of the most common heart disease in children, particularly in developing countries. Rheumatic fever is the antecedent of rheumatic heart disease. As per the Jones criteria, rheumatic heart…[3]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Aortic valve insufficiency, also referred to as aortic regurgitation in cardiology guidelines and scientific literature, represents the incompetence of the aortic valve, causing diastolic flow from the aorta to the left ventricle, due to rheumatic valvular abnormalities, calcification, endocarditis, congenital bicuspid…[4]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy without an identifiable cause. Most patients have little or no disability and a normal life expectancy. Higher rates of morbidity or mortality are linked to the complications of the disorder, sudden cardiac death,…[5]

  • Congenital Aortic Valve Stenosis
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Congenital aortic valve stenosis is the inborn obstruction of blood flow through the aortic valve, most often associated with abnormal valve morphology: aortic bicuspid or unicuspid valve. It can be associated with other cardiac malformations and the condition, in the majority of cases, becomes symptomatic sooner or…[6]

  • Congenital Aortic Insufficiency
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG
  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Mitral valve insufficiency (regurgitation) is the condition characterized by backflow of the blood from the left ventricle to the left atrium during systole, due to mitral valve prolapse, rheumatic or ischemic heart disease, infective endocarditis, cardiomyopathy or mitral apparatus calcification. Depending primarily on…[7]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy
    Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in ECG

    Alcoholic cardiomyopathy is a condition resulting from long-term excessive alcohol intake. This cardiac muscle disease causes an impaired heart performance that leads to cardiac failure. The clinical presentation is dependent on the stage of the heart muscle disease. In the early ACM, patients are…[8]
