Anyone had any experience of having an abnormality at the aortic root around the sinuses?
I recently got results back from an echocardiogram stating that my aortic root was 4.6cm dilated at the point of the sinuses of vasalva. Given that this is the widest part of the aorta, would this still quantify as an aneurysm? or simply just a growth at this point, I've read some places 4.0cm is the cut off whilst other sources state 4.5cm ,all my other measurements on the aorta came back normal but naturally, you turn to google and freak out when you read the worst case scenario.
An otherwise healthy 34 yr old male, with a bicuspid valve as well, booked in to see a cardio in the next couple of weeks. Any advice or similar experiences would be amazing, Thanks.
