The changes in left ventricular (LV) structure and geometry that evolve after myocardial injury or overload usually involve chamber dilation and/or hypertrophy. Such architectural remodeling can be classified as eccentric or concentric. Consideration of LV volume, mass, and relative wall thickness (or mass/volume) allows classification of LV remodeling that includes virtually all LV remodeling changes that are seen in health and disease. These various architectural changes generally include the… CONTINUE READING
