Hello, The unfolding of aorta is a normal phenomenon with increasing age. However other finding like cardiac enlargement and evidence of pulmonary venous congestion warranty further investigation.
You need to get a 2D echo cardiography, and based on the result further treatment plan to be decided.
Yes it's a treatable , however we need to find the cause and treat it effectively for maximum benefit.
