mild Left ventricular hypertrophy
I am a relatively active 72 year old (swimming, gym and lots of walking). I had a fainting incident recently, ultimately diagnosed as Vasovagal syncope. During the workup I had several tests done on my heart. Echo Cardiogram, MRI and stress test. It was determined that I had “mild Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH)”. Ejection fraction was 54%. MRI indicates heart in “normal range.
After wearing a bp monitor for a day hypertension seems to be the cause. I am now taking perindopril erbumine 8 mg daily.
When I look for ejection fraction readings it is not clear whether 54 is in the normal range or just below.
Also I was wondering if my hypertension comes under control will my LVH and ejection fraction improve?
