It also says I have Trivial Mitral Regurgitation which from what I can tell is a normal finding.
I am a 33 year old female and was weighed at 121 lbs and measured at 5 feet 7.5
inches tall prior to the exam.
I can't find anywhere on the internet that provides normal values for the
sinotubular junction and ascending aorta. From two past echo reports, I have
values for the aortic root but not the other two. Both reports say an aortic
root is normal all the way up to 3.7 cm so I am not sure why I am now told 3.4
is abnormal. I had an aortic root measured at 3.3 in 2005. Another echo performed this last May had in measured at 2.6 but I will assume that was inaccurate. I have never had measurements of the sinotubular junction or ascending aorta before.
I have suffered from dizzy spells and palpitations (PACs, PVCs, and Tachy episodes) for about 3 years now. I was told back in May that I likely suffered from Neurocardiogenic Syncope after an echo, nuclear stress test and Holter came back normal. I was taking Lisinopril for HBP but just switched yesterday at my doctor's recommendation to Toprol XL 25 mg (generic form).
I am seeing a cardiologist next month who specializes in Marfan's/Ehlers Danlos
to see if I could possibly have one of the disorders. Ruling out these disorders was the reason I had this echo recently. I had it performed at Children's Hospital because they have a leading Marfan's/Ehlers clinic in my area.
Does anyone know the normal ranges for the above abnormalties? I am not sure how dilated they truly are because they did not include a range on the report.
I am concerned since my maternal grandfather died at my age of an aneursym.
