Mechanical load regulates ventricular growth, function, and structure from the earliest stages of cardiac morphogenesis through senescence. Dramatic changes in cardiac form and function have been defined for developing cardiovascular systems, and changes in mechanical loading conditions can produce structural malformations such as left heart hypoplasia. To date, relatively little is known regarding the interactions between changes in mechanical load, morphogenesis, and the material properties… CONTINUE READING
