Figure 5: Different stimuli induce different forms of cardiac hypertrophy. Pressure overload causes thickening of the left ventricle wall due to the addition of sarcomeres in parallel and results in concentric hypertrophy. Volume overload induces an increase in muscle mass via the addition of sarcomeres in series and results in eccentric hypertrophy. Reproduced with permission
