Ventricular Hypertrophy

Eccentric Concentric Hypertrophy

Ventricular hypertrophy i.e., increased ventricular mass occurs as the ventricle adapts to increased stress, such as chronically increased volume load preload or increased pressure load afterload . Although hypertrophy is a physiological response to increased stress, the response can become pathological and ultimately lead to a deterioration in function. For example, hypertrophy is a normal physiological adaptation to exercise training that enables the ventricle to enhance its pumping capacity....
