Right Atrial Enlargement

Findings:  PVC's
Right Atrial Enlargement.
Multiple runs of Ventricular Tachycardia non-sustained, most likely a right-sided outflow tract VT.

Normal left ventricular systolic function with no evidence of significant ischemia.
Negative Stress Echo for Ischemia.
Normal Sinus Rhythem.
Normal Stress Echocardiogram.
All walls normal during rest and stress.

1.  Could Right Atrial Enlargement be reversed; if so, may I ask for suggestion/s?
2.  What does "significant ST depression with exercise mean?  (Mine was 1mm ST depression)
3.  Baseline echocardiogram shows an ejection fraction of 50 - 55%.  Is this within normal range?
