Cardiac myocytes stop dividing shortly after birth and subsequently the heart grows by enlargement of individual cells, a process that can be observed in vitro as well.' However, growth of individual cardiomyocytes can also be observed in the adult heart, a process called hypertrophy. Chronic hernodynamic overload of the heart by, e.g. , infarction, hypertension or volume or pressure overload ultimately leads to hypertrophy of the left ventricular wall. The hypertrophy process involves… CONTINUE READING
