LVH.: This findings means that the entire left ventricle is a little bit thickened. The muscle layer of the left ventricle can be thickened in people who have high blood pressure, or in those who are overweight, for example. Not a danger in and of itself, but should be followed by serial 2D Echo over the years, and you may want a Cardiologist opinion as to cause.
