Athletic Cardiac Adaptation in Males Is a Consequence of Elevated Myocyte Mass


BACKGROUND Cardiac remodeling occurs in response to regular athletic training, and the degree of remodeling is associated with fitness. Understanding the myocardial structural changes in athlete's heart is important to develop tools that differentiate athletic from cardiomyopathic change. We hypothesized that athletic left ventricular hypertrophy is a… (More)
