Biventricular Hypertrophy Causes
15 yo son extremely athlete has a heart murmur, recent EKG showed bradycardia, right ventricular hypertrophy and possible biventricular hypertrophy?
Might be fine, but..: This sounds like the sort of thing that the computer in the ECG machine would say, and it is often wrong. He should have an echocardiogram and an examination by a pediatric cardiologist. This may very well all be nothing, but best to check it out thoroughly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hypertrophy is an increase in size of an organ or tissue, or a particular part of the body. Examples include muscle hypertrophy due to lifting weights, ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of a ventricle of the heart) due to high blood pressure or other heart disorders, or prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of ...Read more
I have been told I have temporalis hypertrophy, we have just tried Botox injections to help. What can I do if this doesn't work? What is the cause?
Chronic contractions: Any muscle "hypertrophies" or increases in size when it contracts more than usual or more than normal. That's the reason you are being given BOTOX so that perhaps, you will have the muscles relaxed and go back to a normal size eventually. ...Read more
Can adenoids become enlarged in adults and cause problems? If so, what are some of the common causes for adenoid hypertrophy in adults?
Hypertrophy: Can be caused by pressure or volume loads on the heart, also genetic causes and sometimes infiltrative diseases. ...Read more
Is there any evidence that overbreathing can cause adenoid hypertrophy and/or can breath re training shrink the adenoid?
Complex question: If you mean overbreathing through the nose, by the time air reaches the adenoid, it has been cleansed of most contaminants and is at body temperature. Therefore the act of nasal inhalation would have no effect on the size of the adenoid in children. The adenoid is a lympho-epithelial structure that usually atrophies with age. I do not think that any training would effect the size of adenoid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Because the heart hypertrophies due to long term exercise, will this start to cause damage and arythmias or is it different as its due to exercise?
Ur heart becomes..: ...stronger as it is stressed by exercise. As far as I know, this doesn't lead 2 arrhythmia. ...Read more
Aging and: Aging will lead to degeneration of the facet joints as can injury or trauma which can accelerate this process as can smoking which degenerates the discs which alters the mechanics of the spine segments creating more stresses on the facet joints leading to degeneration. Underlying rheumatologic conditions will affect these joints too. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
ASD=RV volume load: This may be a matter of semantics/terminology. Sometimes, patients with an atrial septal defect (ASD) are labeled as having a patent foramen ovale, as both lesions occur in the same spot. If there is an asd, there can be sufficient left-to-right shunting at the atrial level, resulting in rv volume overload, rv enlargement and rv hypertrophy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hypertrophy and dilation usually cause by different things? Or do they usually exhist together. Ie. If you have a dilated rv it is also hypertrophied?
Ask why: Why do you ask? Athletes may have both, or they may be overreads. Hypertrophy results from a ventricle working very hard; dilation from it not emptying perhaps because it's trying to work past its limit. They often occur together, but the key is to undestand the underlying process (sports training, heart disease). ...Read more
What causes hypertrophy of calves in kids with Duchenne? Is it because of how they walk and over use calve muscles or something else?
Does adenoidal hypertrophy cause headaches, dizziness and memory issues? What else could be the cause of my soft tissue swelling in that area?
No: If you know that the tissue in the nasopharynx is benign enlargement of lymphoid tissue, then it is not possible that you would have dizziness and memory issues. If your ENT doctor visualizes, a mass in the back of the nose at 37 years of age, I would operate and remove that tissue to identify exactly what the pathology is. CAT scan of the head would also be appropriate. ...Read more
Yes: By causing extra work on the heart, the muscle often enlarges. ...Read more
Does having food allergy or tolerance be a cause of turbinate hypertrophy? Does stopping nasonex (mometasone) cause relapse?
More likely inhalent: There are various types of food allergies and sensitivities which can cause skin, GI, respiratory and sinonasal symptoms. Generally turbinate hypertrophy is due to inhalant allergies. Nasal steroid sprays derive their benefit after days of use and must be continued to function. If allergies are present, symptoms of congestion stuffiness generally improved with antihistamine and nasal steroid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
