Age: 28

Height: 6' 1"

Weight: 165lbs

Gender: Male

Medications: 10mg Lisinopril

Smoker: No

Current Medical Issues: Mild Hypertension, and Chest Pain. I have been experiencing these symptoms for the past 6 months.

As my title states I am concerned about a particular measurement I noticed while reviewing my test results. Here is the test results in total:


LM: 0LAD: 0LCX: 0RCA: 0Total calcium score = 0

The coronary circulation is right dominant. There are no anomalies of the coronary artery origin or course.

Left main coronary artery:No coronary artery atherosclerosis is visualized.

Left anterior descending coronary artery:No coronary artery atherosclerosis is visualized.

Left circumflex coronary artery:No coronary artery atherosclerosis is visualized.

Right coronary artery:No coronary artery atherosclerosis is visualized.

Heart:The left ventricle is normal in size. The left ventricular myocardium is homogenous in appearance; there is no hypertrophy. There is no intracardiac thrombus. No congenital abnormalities noted.

Valves:All valves appear normal. There is a trileaflet aortic valve. The ascending aorta measures 3.6cm at the level of the sinus of Valsalva and 3.0cm at the level of the main pulmonary artery.

Pericardium:The pericardium appears normal. There is no pericardial effusion or calcifications.

I am concerned about the size of my ascending aorta as it seems large considering based on my research it should be no larger then 3.0cm. How concerned should I be about this? Should I immediately cease strenuous activities? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
