What are upper normal limits of aortic root at sinuses of valsalva, at mid ascending aorta, descending aorta, proximal abdominal aorta and iliac artery in a 58 year old male who weighs 189 to 200 pounds and is 6' 0" tall?

2. What's upper normal blood pressure at stages 4 (11 minute) and 5 (13minute) of Bruce protocol stress echo test in a above person? Thank you.

Published values of "normal ranges" for aortic sizes.  
Sinus of valsalva:  29-45mm
Mid ascending aorta::  22-36mm
Descending aorta:  20-30mm
Abdominal aorta:  15-29mm
Common Ileac:  10-12mm  

There is no "normal value for BP response to exercise."  We define exertional hypertension as a systolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 210 mmHg.

There is typo error in the first sentence above. Should be written as upper normal limits at proximal (place where ascending aorta is widest) as well as at mid ascending aorta.
