hypertrophic will be much bigger, as the walls will be crazy thick

restrictive may be bigger, but itll be due to accumulation of stuff i would think. like it wouldn't solely be a result of more cardiac muscle.

dilated cardiomyopathy...would show a big ass heart (as a whole)

hypertrophic cardiomyopathy...would show hugely thick walls (only)

restrictive...no change in size (because of increased stiffness of the heart with no increase in thickness)



its been a while since i studied cardio so i apologize in advance if im wrong
