Certainly: Associated but the better question to ask unless you know is why do you have an enlarged left ventricle. Hope you have seen or are planning to see your cardiologist.

A 29-year-old member asked:
What is the result of damage to the chordae tendinae in the left ventricle?
2 doctor answers • 2 doctors weighed in

Leaky Valve: Usually, this leads to a leaking valve and, if untreated, eventually congestive heart failure. The duration which a person can tolerate a damaged chordae is dependent on the person's health otherwise, the cause of the damage, the amount of the resultant leakage, and the size and function of the left ventricle prior to the damage.

Mitral regurgitation: Damage to the chordae tendinae would result in problems with the closure and sealing of the mitral valve, and would lead to mitral regurgitation, or leaking, and possibly heart failure.

A 33-year-old female asked:
Are outflow pvcs in the right ventricle common and are the benign?
1 doctor answer • 1 doctor weighed in

PVC's: Pvc's are common especially the older we get, and generally benign. Our treatments are generally more dangerous than having pvc's. However, sometimes an electrolyte abnormality will make these more common so it is important that if there is a sudden start or increase that we look at those. This involves some simple blood work.
