Left Ventricular Hypertrophy is outlined as an increase in the mass of the left ventricle, which may also be secondary to an expand in wall thickness, and broaden in cavity measurement. Left ventricular hypertrophy more often than not develops steadily. Whilst ventricular hypertrophy happens naturally as a response to aerobic undertaking and strength coaching, it is most commonly known as a pathological response to cardiovascular disorder, or high blood stress.
Treatment for LVH focuses on the underlying the cause of the condition. Depending on the cause, Treatment may include medication or surgery. Doctor suggests the treatment for LVH such as regular exercise a low-sodium, low-fat diet and no smoking. They used to control the blood pressure by using some types of drugs like enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril) and captopril (Capoten), atenolol (Tenormin), carvedilol (Coreg), metoprolol (Toprol XL) and bisoprolol (Zebeta) and etc.
The prevalence of ECG-LVH when using Sokolow-Lyon criterion was 9.8% for males and 5.7% for females. The corresponding figures, when using the sex-specific Cornell product, were 14.9% for males and 18.8% for females. Only 17% of LVH patients had their blood pressure under good control (BP <140/90 mm Hg) as compared to 25% of non-LVH patients (P < 0.01)
