what are normal values of aorta (at leaflets), left atrium, left ventricle id(dia), left ventricle id(sys),intraventricle septum, post wall thickness and ejection fraction in cm for a man of 44 years during rest and (exercise) stress? thank you.john
Hi, What are normal values of left atrium, left ventricle id(dia) and left ventricle (sys) for a person of 44 years, who use to jog a lot (20-40 miles per week) for the last 20 years? Is left atrium of 4, left ventricle 5.4 and left ventricle id(sys) 3.4 cm within normal range? Do above values mean that I have left ventricle hypertrophy or cardiomapathy? Should I stop exercising at 85%? What is ideal fit exercise for me? Can I reverse it by stoping exercising? Than you very much. John P.S. All other heart measurements are normal, with ejection fraction being 60 +/-5%.
