LVH on echocardiogram

LVH on echocardiogram

lvh-psax
Left ventricular hypertrophy on echocardiogram – PSAX

Parasternal short axis view at the level of the papillary muscles showing severe concentric left ventricular hypertrophy. Serial short axis views have to be obtained and maximal thickness documented, when assessing hypertrophic cardiomyopathy for risk profile.


lvh-plax
LVH on echo – PLAX View

Parasternal long axis view showing concentric left ventricular hypertrophy.


lvh-m-mode
LVH on echocardiogram – M Mode

M-Mode echocardiogram showing left ventricular hypertrophy. IVSd: interventricular septum diastolic measurement. LVIDd: Left ventricular internal dimension, diastolic. LVPWd: Left ventricular posterior wall, diastolic. IVSs: Interventricular septum, systolic. LVIDs: Interventricular septum, systolic. LVPWs: Left ventricular posterior wall, systolic. EDV: End diastolic volume. FS: Fractional shortening. ESV: End systolic volume. SV: Stroke volume. EF: Ejection fraction.
