Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Cardiothoracic ratio is increased if your heart is enlarged. There is no other reason for this actually . Heart can be dilated in a number of conditions e.g cardiomyopathy, failure, persistently high blood pressure , valvular diseases , amyloidosis etc. So BNP would help rule out the heart failure here.

It can be managed eith a combination of medications once the diagnosis is ascertained .

I hope everything works out best for you.

Hope it helped.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
