      • The hypertrophy can range from focal segmental hypertrophy to diffuse global hypertrophy. • In approximately 10% of patients the hypertrophy is limited to 1– 2 segments. • As the hypertrophy is often noncontiguous, all LV segments should be carefully examined from base to apex in all available views.

    • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in Hypertension

      Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent predictor of morbimortality in the general population when diagnosed by either the ECG or the echocardiogram1,2. Since the pioneer observations of the Framingham Heart Study, several epidemiological studies have highlighted LVH as one of the most important risk factors for angina pectoris,

      ECG and CMR for LVH are discussed in an attempt to narrow gaps in our knowledge regarding the ECG diagnosis of LVH. Bridging these gaps is vital in order to elucidate the information necessary to inform clinical management of individual patients. LEFT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY LVH is defined as an increased LV mass.

      In hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is initially a useful compensatory process, that represents an adaptation to increased ventricular wall stress; however, it is also the first step toward the development of overt clinical disease. The prevalence of LVH, according to ECG criteria is quite low in a

    • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy and Arrhythmogenesis

      Left ventricular mass was measured by the chamber partition method (32) and was normalized for body surface area. Left ventricular hypertrophy was defined as left ventricular mass index> 118 g/m2 in men and > 104 g/m2 in women, which approximate the upper 97th percentile of normal left ventricular mass index in a subset of
