About Heart size

Hi, while getting scanned a person comes to know that his heart is not developed properly. It is developed only 60% and is small in size compared to the normal size of the heart. the person is of 25 years and do not have any health issues. Will the size of the heart will be a problem in future?

Hi there!

The measurement of the heart is a very complexed thing and can only be done accurately by a Cardiologist and with an Echocardiogram (almost like a sonar of your heart).  Every person's heart size is different and if you have been checked out by a Cardio and he is not worried, then you shouldn't be conserned.

A normal heart will have 4 fully functional valves, no thickenings anywhere, no blocked arteries and EF of appr. 70%

Do you know the values of your heart tests?
