Right, ventricular hypertrophy also known as right ventricular enlargement happens when the muscles of the right side of the heart (which pumps blood to your lungs) become thick or enlarge. Right ventricular hypertrophy is usually caused by a problem in the lungs. This results in increased blood pressure and makes it hard for the heart to send electrical signals to other parts leading to some serious health problems. The left side of the hearttries to compensate for the problem of the right side, therefore it becomes hard to identify Right ventricular hypertrophy. If the ECG traces the presence of Right ventricular hypertrophy it's best to see your doctor as soon as possible.


If left untreated the risk of congestive heart failure can increase.
