Transwiki:Eccentric hypertrophy

Eccentric hypertrophy is a type of hypertrophy where the walls and chamber of a hollow organ undergo growth in which the overall size and volume are enlarged. It is applied especially to the left ventricle of heart.[1]

Sarcomeres are added in series as in dilated cardiomyopathy. This is in contrast to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy where sarcomeres are added concentrically.
