Hypertrophy of the postnatal heart is characterized by enlargement of cardiomyocytes [1,2]. It occurs during physiological situations (like postnatal growth, pregnancy or in professional athletes due to regular strenuous exercise) and in response to pathological stimuli that trigger cardiac overload, for example chronic arterial hypertension, aortic valve stenosis or myocardial infarction (MI) [1,3]. Epidemiologic studies have shown that pathological hypertrophy bears a high risk of progressing… CONTINUE READING
