I'm a 39 year old female who has a recent echocardiogram. Showed mild mitral valve thickening and mild mitral regurgitation. Should I be concerned or see a cardiologist.?

An echocardiogram revealed mild mitral valve thickening & prolapse. Can this be causing a fast heart rate/tiredness?
The mitral valve leaflets are mildly thickened. There is bileaflet buckling of the mitral valve leafets without frank prolqpse. What does this mean?
Good news!: Don't be overwhelmed or needlessly alarmed by medical jargon. We use very descriptive words to convey information from one health care professional. To interpret for you: you don't have mitral valve prolapse. That's great news! That means: 1) no need for prophylactic antibiotics before dental procedures ; 2) very low chance of developing a heart valve infection or need or valve surgery. ...Read more
In my echo reprt it says mild buckling of anterior mitral leaflet, no myxomatous thickness seen. And also trace mitral regurgitation.
Common picture: This is a common description of what can be an unremarkable finding. Some cardiologists will interpret this as mild mitral valve prolapse, but the description actually sounds more like one of the common normal variants of mitral valve appearance on echocardiogram. This appearance frequently is associated with no future negative outcomes. Discuss with your physician. ...Read more
My echocardiogram said I have anterior leaflet thickening of the mitral valve--what does that mean?
Incidental finding: Anterior leaflet thickening is not an uncommon finding and is usually seen incidentally. It is of little clinical significance if it is not associated with more than mild regurgitation or "leakage" of the mitral valve, restriction in opening of the valve, or other structural heart disease. So essentially, if the rest of the echo is normal probably nothing to worry about. ...Read more
Echocardiogram showed moderate mitral valve thickening with prolapse of anterior mitral leaflet, MR jet posteriorly directed. What is your opinion?
These certainly: Are findings one could have on an ECHO. Without actually seeing the echo we can't say that is our interpretation. If the interpretation is accurate you have significant regurgitant mitral valve prolapse and should be followed by a cardiologist to avoid long term adverse outcomes. ...Read more
severe LAE, left atrium is severely dilated, mitral valve leaflets appear mildly thickened. Mitral regurgitation (1-2+), what does this mean?
Question? Consult!: These little boxes are not good for answering specific patient case problems. Consider a cardiology consultation here on HealthTap. The kind of consult where you ask for help within the next 24 hours works particularly well for a complex case because it enables emailing back and forth with the details. ...Read more
HEART The mitral valve leaflets appeared thickened, there is a trace of tricuspid regurgitation & pulmonic valvular regurgitation. What does that mean?
Does this increase my risk for sudden cardiac death? Is this mitral valve prolapse?, will it get worse with time? Anterior mitral valve leaflet moderately thickened but no stenosis or prolapse.
Dysautonomia - MVP: Dysautonomia is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Read dr. Richard hoffman's book on mvp on amazon. Com. Increase fluid intake, try magnesium supplements. Risk of sudden death is less than chance of winning the powerball lottery. ...Read more

If mild mitral and pulmonic regurgitation, are nothing to worry about. How come that everymove I make are so difficult for me?
Normal finding: The mitral and tricuspid valves are the valves between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. When the heart contracts a tiny amount of blood may go backwards through the valves. This is called physiological regurgitation and is normal. When it becomes significantly more it may cause symptoms. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
