  1. Maritza Montas Maritza Montas United States says:

    I have the same condition, the doctor said it's normal at my age. He said that when the heart expands to allow the blood to go out to the ventricles , my heart do not expands as it should. but he said it is only like 1% so he told me not to worry about it for now.
    when you have to start worrying is if you have short of breath doing some kind of efforts like exercising or running and if you have pain in your chest otherwise, not to worry. Just do the annual cardiogram and (if they ask you) the sonogram.
