Concentric or Eccentric Hypertrophy: How Clinically Relevant Is the Difference?

Abstract

Different combinations of volume and pressure overloads cause different left ventricular (LV) geometric adaptations. Whereas this cause-effect relationship is obvious for valve disease, because clear-cut types of overloads are easily recognizable, in systemic hypertension the type of cardiac load is less evident but at least as important for LV adaptation… (More)
