Elevated Rt hrt pres: I suppose you are reading the 2D Echo. Without looking at the complete report, it appears that the pressures in the right side of your heart, right ventricle are higher than normal. This is interfering with the movement of the thin membrane that separates the left and right ventricles. Increased pressure need to be evaluated further for the cause, for example pulmonary hypertension.
