Lanoxine-.25mg(1/2tab),metoprolol succinate-50mg(morning),25mg(bed time).
    
  Question is why the LA becoming such a large size,is there any chances of heart failure with this enlargement.Is there any surgery or any procedure to reduce the size of Lv size.Is it a reason for getting week n weight loss.
