Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Overview. The left ventricle hypertrophies in response to pressure overload secondary to conditions such as aortic stenosis and hypertension. This results in increased R wave amplitude in the left-sided ECG leads (I, aVL and V4-6) and increased S wave depth in the right-sided leads (III, aVR, V1-3).

ECG changes seen in left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH). The electrical vector of the left ventricle is enhanced in LVH, which results in large R-waves in left sided leads (V5, V6, aVL and I) and deep S-waves in right sided chest leads (V1, V2).

Left ventricular hypertrophy can be diagnosed on ECG with good specificity. When the myocardium is hypertrophied, there is a larger mass of myocardium for electrical activation to pass through ...

Left ventricular hypertrophy with secondary repolarization abnormalities as seen on ECG There are several sets of criteria used to diagnose LVH via electrocardiography. [5] None of them are perfect, though by using multiple criteria sets, the sensitivity and specificity are increased.

Left ventricular hypertrophy. Left ventricular hypertrophy is a thickening of the wall of the heart's main pumping chamber. This thickening may result in elevation of pressure within the heart and sometimes poor pumping action. The most common cause is high blood pressure.

The ECG criteria for diagnosing right or left ventricular hypertrophy are very insensitive (i.e., sensitivity ~50%, which means that ~50% of patients with ventricular hypertrophy cannot be recognized by ECG criteria).

What is Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH)? LVH is a term for a heart’s left pumping chamber that has thickened and may not be pumping efficiently. Sometimes problems like aortic stenosis or high blood pressure overwork the heart muscle. In response to this pressure overload inside the heart ...

Left ventricular hypertrophy is a condition where the muscle wall becomes thickened (hypertrophied). The left ventricle is the strongest and most muscular chamber of the heart, as it is ...

Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), also known as an enlarged heart, is a condition in which the muscle wall of heart’s left pumping chamber (ventricle) becomes thickened (hypertrophy). Other conditions, such as heart attack, valve disease and dilated cardiomyopathy, can cause the heart (or the heart cavity) to get bigger.
