Avatar_n_tn
Hi, I’m a 57 yr old male with AVR  (bicuspid), in 2007. In 2010 started having symptoms of SOB and chest pains again, after months of testing, stress test 2010 inconclusive, lack of communication stopped test, mets rated at 5.9. MRI performed 5/9/11, ascending aorta aneurysm measuring 5cm x 4.6cm discovered. On 12/09/2011, I the VA performed a CT Scan, to backup the MRI, and the aneurysm measured 4.9cm x 4.8cm. Question is, they are considering to perform another Stress Test, is this necessary, and could the test be harmful considering the size of the aneurysm? Is their another way to evaluate the heart besides the tread mill, or the nuclear test  that measures the MET’s.  And  2nd  question is how far are METs, measured, 1 to 10 or can the MET’s go all the way to 50. I don’t understand this type of measuring system>
