[Physiopathology of left ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction].

Abstract

The geometry of both the infarcted and non-infarcted zone of the left ventricle changes after myocardial infarction. Two mechanisms are involved: expansion of the infarcted zone and secondary dilatation of the non-infarcted zone. The necrosed area undergoes an inflammatory reaction followed by fibrosis which end up as a sca within a period of a few days to… (More)
