I started with a 3.98 root by echo 3 years ago--stress echo was good with trace regurg and a slight prolapsed mit valve...
then followed with a ct of the root that said normal at 3.7
then last year an echo said 3.9
now this year an echo with the same doc at 3.5
My stress echo this year was good only trace regurg and a slight prolapse in the mit valve.
Doc said all is good.....
any thoughts??
Why the fluctutaions?

I am 60 and in good health on no meds with low bp and no symptoms of anything...???

I just got the full stress echo reports from 2013 and 2014
The root is now measured by echo at 3.5
the measurement of the ascending aorta at the sinus val salva is 3.9

my doc said "you're fine se ya in a year"

anyone have any thoughts on these measurements???
