Diliated Aortic root
My son was diagnosed with Dilated Aortic root with two minor leaks from valves. My son is 17 fit plays basketball and is in year 12, but the aortic root according to his hearteco yesterday the measurements were fluterating between 3.5 to 3.9cm but the specialist said he thought were more along the lines of 37mm. He had a heart echo done last august the the specialist calculated it according to his bsa as 34.5 but his new specialist only went by the measurements of the echo.
Does anyone know the correct way of doing it and what is the norm. I am so worried even though the specialist told me not to stress but hey you just can help it. My son is off for a CT on Monday which will give a more accurate reading.
Is this dangerous has anyone experienced the above if so I would love to hear from you, I need my mind put at ease as I am so confused.
