leaky heart valve and enlarged heart chamber

Posted by tomonthebeach @tomonthebeach, Aug 17, 2017

which comes first? enlarged heart that causes valves to leak or leaky valve that causes heart to enlarge? Does it matter to know which came first?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Heart & Blood Health group.

I have a tricuspid valve that no longer functions and my heart is slightly enlarged. In my case, I also have heart failure with pef so not sure what came first.
