Ventricular Remodeling Summary

Description: The geometric and structural changes that the HEART VENTRICLES undergo, usually following MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. It comprises expansion of the infarct and dilatation of the healthy ventricle segments. While most prevalent in the left ventricle, it can also occur in the right ventricle.

Also Known As: Left Ventricle Remodeling; Ventricle Remodeling; Cardiac Remodelings, Ventricular; Left Ventricle Remodelings; Left Ventricular Remodelings Show All >>
