ECHO: None appears to be concerning but this needs to be interpreted with your symptoms, history, and physical exam.

Maybe...: If your having chest pain (particularly with exertion) the apical and anterior hypokinesis could be something that needs to be looked into further. It could represent a potential stenosis of the left anterior descending artery.
Dr. Stephen Southard

Not likely: The low normal left ventricular systolic function suggests that your heart pumps blood out but on the lowish side compared to everyone else. The valve related issues are unlikely to cause issues at minimal or trace levels. If there was great concern for "hypokinesis" - or less active pumping of the heart a repeat echocardiogram could also be obtained.

2 things: 1. A relatively normal EF bit with possibly some focal hypokinesis may suggest ischemic heart disease. 2. The other reported findings on your heart valves are pretty benign.
