Review Phenotypic plasticity of adult myocardium: molecular

Myocardial and vascular remodelling have primarily a mechanical origin and an adaptive significance. Cardiac remodelling (CR) occurs in response to chronic mechanical overloading, and arterial remodelling is a response to permanent arterial hypertension (Lompré et al., 1979; Swynghedauw, 1999; Levy and Tedgui, 1999). CR leads to

Patients with HCM or arterial hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension is a symptom that occurs in a variety of underlying condi-tions. It is defined as a mean pulmonary arterial pressure of more than 25 mmHg at rest or more than 30 mmHg during exercise. During the Second World Symposium on Pulmonary Hypertension in 1998, a classification for these underlying con-ditions was proposed.

The Transition From Hypertrophy to Failure

Hypertension can lead to concentric left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), characterized by nondilated, thick-walled left ventricle (arrow, top left). After transition to failure, the LV is dilated with reduced LVEF. Coronary artery disease often via MI is a common contributor to this transition (first horizontal arrow).

Recommendations on the Use of Echocardiography in Adult
