Normal: Your echocardiogram seemed to be normal. Trivial stands for minimal. If you have reasons to believe that something is abnormal about your heart talk to your GP in direct terms using your symptoms or family history for example, let him or her make a decision about how meaningful would a cardiology consult be in your case.
