Mild Aortic Regurgitation Years To Progress
It can: Mitral (MI-tral) valve prolapse (MVP) is a condition in which one of the heart's valves, the mitral valve, doesn't work properly. The flaps of the valve are "floppy" and don't close tightly. Much of the time, MVP doesn't cause any problems. Rarely, blood can leak the wrong way through the floppy valve, which may cause shortness of breath, palpitations (strong or rapid heartbeats), or chest pain. ...Read more

I had an echocardiogram show severe mitral regurgitation, moderate /severe tricuspid regurgitation &mild to moder pulmonic regurge. Is surgery option?
Mitral regurgitation: You should have this discussion with a cardiologist who can evaluate you and your status and review your data. Surgery is an option for many patients with severe mitral regurgitation but more is involved in the evaluation than what you have above, any recommendation from here has to be to see a cardiologist personally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ive been diagnosed with mild mitral valve prolpase and trace mitral regurgetation..will this disease progress?
Occasionally: Most patients with mitral valve prolapse remain quite stable over the duration of their lives. Rarely, there may be progressive mitral insufficiency depending if the valve degenerates over time or if there is an infection on the valve. The optimal strategy is to have periodic echocardiograms done in the same laboratory to ensure consistency. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
Echo result shows three mild leaking valves" mitral, tricuspid,and pulmonary"plus mild/moderate pulmonary HTN 42,57
Any problem will occur in future?
Hard to know...: More follow-up and directed testing may be necessary, especially for the pulmonary hypertension, in order to offer you an accurate prognosis. What's the cause? And how rapidly are the valve architecture and pulmonary pressures changing? These questions need to be answered to offer you a prognosis. Coordinate with Cardiologist. ...Read more
Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...Read more

My mother in law suffering from severe global hupokinesia of LV, Severe LV systolic dysfunction, Moderate mitral regurgitation, Mild Aortic reg,sv PAH?
Heart Failure: Unfortunately it appears that your mother in law is suffering from advanced congestive heart failure and needs aggressive medical treatment and follow up beyond the scope of this forum. A dedicated heart failure program in your area at an academic hospital is a good place to start. Good luck!! ...Read more
Summary of my resent echogram;
1-Low normal left ventricular function. Ejection fraction is est.52%
2-Mild left atrial enlargement.
3-Mild to moderate aortic valve regurgition.
4-Moderate aortic valve stenosis.
5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation.
Need cardiologist!: There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Is there an effective way to mitigate mild aortic valve sclerotic and aortic valve regurgitation?
Aortic valve: We have no specific steps other than good medical care. If hypertensive it needs treatment, anti atherosclerotic therapy is also appropriate. ...Read more

I have anterior mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation & im 15weeks pregnant, a c operation is better?
Not really: Mvp is a very common condition in women, over diagnosed in the 80's and 90's. The echo doppler is a very sensitive tool to find "valvular leaks= regurgitation" the fact that the leaks are "mild" make them more likely without clinical significance and should not be a contraindication for vaginal delivery. Discuss with your pcp. ...Read more
I have mild asymptomatic aortic valve stenosis that has remained unchanged for five years. Does everyone with aortic valve stenosis have surgery?
No : if remains without symptoms and size of stenosis doesn't become critical, surgery may not be needed. you should follow with your internist or cardiologist ...Read more

Can left untreated moderate pulmHTN be dangerous?what is the rate of progression without treatment?with(pulm+mitral+tricuspid mild regurgitation)
Yes/uncertain: Untreated disease will eventually lead to heart failure/death. Timing is unpredictable and effect of treatment varies with individual patients. You need to get into treatment and educate yourself as much as possible about what you can do for yourself.Complacency can only speed up a poor outcome. ...Read more
