Regurgitation: Most clinicians pay very little attention to echocardiogram findings of trace regurgitation and don't consider it a sign of significant valve pathology. However, there is no description of the degree of mitral valve regurgitation in your report so we won't be able to advise you about presence or absence of significant mitral valve pathology.
