... My almost 17 yo son had catheter ablation in 2008 for supraventricular tachycardia and it was noted his aortic root was on the large side, I think it was in range but large. ... (0 replies)
... Hi again, My son who is 17 has very similiar to you and I know you are worried as I am for my son. Did they tell how enlarged your aortic root was? ... (2 replies)
... there heard a heart murmur. so they sent me to a cardiologist where he gave me an ultra sound. he said that my aortic root wasnt opening and closing properly? ... (2 replies)

... sooner, for some reason, no email notification was sent. My cardiologist said there was mild regurgitation but the leaflets are doing o.k. In the last 7yrs my aortic root has changed from 41mm to 44mm, so it maybe an age thing causing expansion. ... (5 replies)
... The normal range for root is 2. ... (5 replies)
... I dont think 44 mm. is worthy of any more attention than a periodic check to see that it remains stable. You are in the "gray" area where some doctors would call it a dilation, some an aneurism, and some, particularly if you are tall, as high-normal. Sometimes when the root is too large, it causes leaking of the mitral valve (at the base of the aortic root) and regurgitation... (5 replies)
... I just had a echocardiogram, where the aortic root was measured. It was 44mm, vs. the upper end of normal which is 39mm. Anyone else dealing with this issue and what has your doctor said about it? ... (5 replies)
... est, which the cardio said was "excellent" and an echocardiogram. The echo results were all in normal except for trace regurgitation in the Mitral, Tricuspid and Aortic valve. As I understand it, slight leakage is common, except in the aortic valve, which should not leak at all. ... (0 replies)
Enlarged Heart
Mar 16, 2008
... way my cardiologist explained it is that there are two types of valves, tissue valves and mechanical valves. The thing with that is, I would be having the entire aortic root replaced not just the valve. So it's a bit different. My understanding is those are designed to last only around 30 years. ...

... any people as they age will experience an increase in heart size that may account for some insignificant increase in the size of the root. Your dimension of the root maybe normal for you and no problem. No significant leakage is the important factor. ... (5 replies)
... HI! Just want to share my experience of a murmur. This is probably a 'worst case scenario' and even this is not too bad. Had an aortic murmur from a year old, diagnosed with aortic incompetence and stenosis as a teenager. ... (3 replies)
... Hey all so as the title say I was just wondering if an echo cardiogram could miss a structural problem with the heart. for the last few months I have noticed that I am able to see my heart bulging out at the apex just when looking the mirror and I also can feel it beating against the bed when I lay on my side. So fearing an enlarged heart I went to go get an echo cardiogram... (1 replies)
... I just had a new Echo, last one 3 years ago showed Pulmonary Hypertension now I don't have it but have as my Cardio said mild to moderate Aortic valve leakage, same as regurg, from what I read. ... (2 replies)

... Skysablue, The EKG records electrical impulses in a graph format. Good and the only test for rhythm disorder such as fast heart rate, irregular, skipped, extra heartbeats. Not very good for anything else, and would need further testing if there is an indication of structually abnormalities or heart muscle damage, etc. A copy of the EKG will show wave forms, and at the...

... Rufuge 51: The basis for your systolic dysfunction and LV dilation is left ventricle wall motion abnormality. Usually that condition is ischemic based causing heart cell necrosis. Your abnormal heart wall movement (hypokinesis) isn't ischemic related according to tests. There is some respiratory impairment (possible atelectasis), but a low thyroid function can lead...
