Abstract

During the development of hypertrophy, wall mass increases. This may have at least three consequences with regard to intraventricular volume and wall thickness [1, 5, 6, 11–13] (Fig. 1): 1. In compensated pressure overload, as in arterial hypertension and in aortic stenosis, the ventricular wall becomes thickened and the mass is augmented, whereas enddiastolic volume remains normal or increases mildly.
