1. If IVH is Intra ventricular hemorrhage, then In adults it require a great deal of force to cause IVH, the hemorrhage usually does not occur without extensive associated damage, and so the outcome is rarely good.
2. because history and investigations points towards Cardiac cause, thus probably would be LVH (left ventricular Hypertrophy), LVH may be a factor in determining treatment or diagnosis for other conditions like IHD (ischemic heart disease), Aortic stenosis,systemic hypertension,cardiomyopathy, hyper dynamic circulation.
3. please Consult with a Cardiologist who will work up the case for further follow up and management.
4. Echo will help in determining the type of LVH: concentric or eccentric.
