literally means a big heart. Mild cardiomegaly in a plain X-ray chest means the heart shadow looks a bit larger than normal. It may be due to any heart problem – like blood pressure, heart attack
and so on. In this situation it can be from anaemia
. Sometimes, it can even be an illusion, if he distance between the patient and X-ray machine is shorter....
is the biggest artery
(blood vessel) getting out of the heart. It goes up and then arches down. When its elasticity is less – as with age, or blood pressure and so on – the arch gets a bit wider – it is called unfolding
They have no consequences by themselves
No treatment is required for it – one needs only to treat the original condition.
It is the patient as a whole, who gets treatment – not x-ray or lab finding by itself
Wish her speedy recovery
