Slightly enlarged heart
Posted By Zoe on August 08, 1998 at 09:35:45:







For the last 8 months I have been treated for cardiomyopathy.
My ejection fraction is 52% but my heart is still slightly
enlarged. Is there still a chance to live a long life? If you
hold your breath during strenous activity(i.e picking up some-
thing heavy, or during sexual intercourse) could that cause
ones heart to enlarge? I have never had syptoms of cardiomyopathy
and I am still syptom free, living a active life. Since the
EF is near normal does the enlargment still mean the same as if
I had a low EF?  Thank you for your time. Good Day. Zoe
