What is left ventricular hypertrophy?

Left ventricular hypertrophy is enlargement (hypertrophy) of the muscle tissue that makes up the wall of your heart's main pumping chamber (left ventricle). It develops in response to some factor, such as high blood pressure, that requires the left ventricle to work harder.
