A member asked:

I have shortness of breath. in my cardiac mri i noticed that it said mild mr and mitral regurgitant volume 16 ml and fraction 20%, and no mitral stenosis. it also said trivial tricuspid regurgitation, and no tricuspid stenosis. can these be treated?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

The findings of mild mitral regurgitation (regurgutant volume 16ml and fraction 20%) can hardly explain shortness of breath and does not require any treatment, just monitoring. Trivial tricuspid regurgitation is a normal finding on many people. Further work up is needed to investigate shortness of breath.
