In the wild rhythm of everyday life, we often do notWe draw attention to the danger signals that our body gives us. Alas, this sometimes leads to the fact that instead of a minor outpatient treatment, we get to the hospital, and sometimes it's because of inattention to their health that the life of very young people breaks off.
Listen to your body. Do you get worried about heart palpitations? Whether there was a short wind? Did you ever faint? If these signs are present, it's time to turn to the doctor: there is a possibility that the left ventricular hypertrophy makes itself felt. This disease occurs quite often, and in most cases - among young people. The danger of this disease is that it often leads to sudden death. Statistics say that about 4% of patients suffering from this disease die.
So, what is the hypertrophy of the leftThe ventricle? With this disease, the wall of the left ventricle becomes denser. And the internal space remains the same. It happens that the septicemia between the right and left ventricles is compressed in those suffering from this disease. Sealing results in the wall becoming insufficiently elastic.
Depending on whether it is uniformly condensedseptum or only in certain areas, both symptoms and consequences of the disease appear. In the case of uneven compaction of the septum, the aortic and mitral valves of the heart are disturbed, however, the valves do not always suffer from damage.
If the myocardium is compacted only at the apex, this disease is classified as apical hypertrophy of the left ventricle. It can also be symmetrical.
Hypertrophy of the left ventricle: symptoms
Unfortunately, the recognition of the symptoms of thisa truly serious disease is quite difficult. Very many people have this disease, not even suspecting that they are constantly under threat. However, in most people who suffer from left ventricular hypertrophy, there are various types and intensities of pain in the region of the heart, as well as angina. Since the vessels through which the heart muscle receives nutrition contract, and the muscle itself becomes larger and, accordingly, requires more nutrition, then starvation of the myocardium begins to develop.
Often when hypertrophy of the left ventricle arisesand arrhythmia, when the heart then almost freezes, it is strongly part. Also as a symptom you can call dyspnea. In rare cases, fainting occurs in this disease.
What causes this disease?
It is well established that hypertrophy of the leftThe ventricle has an inherited predisposition. If in your family, no matter in which generation, there were cases of this disease or unrecognized heart diseases, you should listen more attentively to your health and immediately consult a doctor if you have the above symptoms. Hypertrophy of the left ventricle is a disease that arises from the mutation of genes associated with myocardial cells, the cause of which has not yet been established. It is this mutation that causes the heart muscle to thicken and expand.
The essence of the treatment of this disease is tonormalize and improve the work of the myocardium. At first they try to achieve this by a medicamentous method, however, if success is not achieved, an operation must be performed. During the operation, the compacted septum is given its natural form.
If hypertrophy of the left ventricle in timediagnose and cure, the person fully lives for many years, and can lead a fairly normal way of life and even safely endure pregnancy and childbirth. However, hard physical labor should still be avoided.
