Surgery for enlarged heart?

Posted By Linda on June 16, 1999 at 13:13:18
My husband's left side(ventricle)is enlarged. Two years ago on the echo it was size 60. This month it was size 62.5. He is athletic, slightly high blood pressure(for which he takes "Cozaar" daily) and normal weight. He has no other symptoms i.e. shortness of breath.
At what size, specifically, do most Drs. recommend surgery? I have heard one figure of when it grows to size 65 or larger.
Thank You.
