Had a cath?: The echo says there might be a structural abnormality of the aortic valve and a leak of the mitral valve with resultant dilation of left atrium. If you had the cardiac cath you list any time recently, more information should be available from that. A TEE is a transesophageal echo which gives us better pictures than a transthoracic echo. You should discuss this echo with your Doc
