Re: Ecg

It means that there is a thickening of the heart muscle, particularly in the wall of the left ventricle.

This is a sign that the heart is having to pump harder to get oxygen rich blood around the body.
It may be related to a number of different conditions, including high blood pressure, heart valve problems and rarely, inherited conditions of the heart muscle.

It poses problems if the thickening is such that it significantly affects the heart's ability to pump oxygenated blood around the body.

Re: Ecg

Left ventricular thickening usually happens because the heart has been working too hard for too long due to any of the reasons cited above. In my case it was from high blood pressure. Did they tell you your ejection fraction? That is a pretty good indicator of how much your heart might be damaged.
