Enlarged Heart- Cardiomegaly

Enlarged Heart also commonly known as cardiomegaly, which is not a disease but rather a sign of another disease.

The development of temporary enlarged heart may be because of a stress on our body, such as pregnancy, or because of a medical condition, such as the weakening of the heart muscle, coronary artery disease, heart valve problems or abnormal heart rhythms.

An enlarged heart may be treatable by correcting the cause. Treatment for an enlarged heart can include medications, medical procedures or surgery. Certain conditions may cause the heart muscle to thicken or one of the chambers of the heart to dilate, making the heart larger. Depending on the condition, an enlarged heart may be temporary or permanent.
