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.
We assessed left atrial size by echocardiography in 941 hypertensive patients, age 55 to 80 (mean, 66) years, with electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy at baseline in the Losartan Intervention For Endpoint reduction in hypertension study. Enlarged left atrial diameter (women, >3.8 cm; men, >4.2 cm) was present in 56% of women and 38% of men (P<0.01)
