Should I see a specialist for pulmonary arter
My lefr atrium is 40 mm from echocardiogram LV diastole 52 I am 75 years
When we are evaluating for pulmonary hypertension, we look for changes in the right atrium and the right ventricle on the echocardiogram. I cannot make any suggestion based on the information you provide. However, if you have concerns, do discuss them with your physician.
