Cardiology A process of structural deterioration of the left ventricle, which is transformed from its normal elliptical shape to a rounded or globoid shape; remodeling is typical of late stage CHF, and accompanied by 'functional' mitral regurgitation, ventricular dilatation, ventricular wall thinning  Etiology Remodeling is due to a loss of myocardial tissue–eg, necrosis post acute MI, metabolic defects–eg, thyroid disease, toxins–eg, drugs or alcohol, inflammation–eg, viral myocarditis, or altered hemodynamics–eg, uncontrolled HTN or aortic stenosis Evaluation Remodeling can be quantified by measuring the end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes
