Cellular basis of ventricular remodeling in hypertensive cardiomyopathy.

This review summarizes the effects of long-term pressure overload hypertrophy on the right and left ventricular myocardium. In particular, the role that the fundamental processes of myocyte growth plays in the remodeling of the wall is analyzed quantitatively. Moreover, emphasis is placed on the observation that the duration of the overload is an important… CONTINUE READING
