Default Myocardial infarction 44 years ago

Myocardial infarction 44 years ago, present with pulmonary congestion.
Atrial dilation or Aortic stenosis?
LV failure lead to atrial dilation? or was the complication mitral regurgitation?

MI causes LV failure which causes LV volume overload and this could lead to atrial dilation. In adittion if the papillary muscles of the LV get affected by the infarction, mitral regurgitation may occur aswell which will contribute further to atrial dilation.
