Does an aortic measurement of 2.9 and a left atrium measurement of 3.78 indicate pulmonary hypertension?
Submitted by Judy from Wisconsin on 08/16/2015
It does not. Determination of pulmonary hypertension cannot be determined from the aortic and LA measurements alone. The location of the aortic measurement needs to be specified, but a measurement of 2.9 cm at any of the standard locations is normal. Sincerely.
