Abnormal Echocardiogram Results
I feel pressure in my chest, did an ecg test the the results came abnormal, had and echocardiogram test as well and everything looked okay...I have slight coughs now...what could this be pls?
I recently underwent a echocardiogram what does these results mean spectral doppler velocity of mitral valve inflow abnormal with reversal of the e and a wave amplitude ratio tissue doppler velocity of mitral valve annulus abnormal with reversal of the
Need more infomation: This is a method of looking at function during the part of the heart cycle know as diastole (when the ventricle relaxes). The information provided needs to be taken in context with other information such as pulmonary venous inflow to detemine whether there is diastolic dysfunction.See 1 more doctor answer
Well depending: Depending on what the results were it may be possible
Echocardiogram: An echocardiogram would be used to evaluate cardiac anatomy, cardiac function, valvular disease and valvular hemodynamics. Basically abnormalities in cardiac structure or function would lead to an abnormal echo. Of course this is always one piece of the puzzle. Your clinical symptoms, and history should be discussed with your cardiologist to decide what course of action would be necessary.
Many: Many things can alter some aspects of echocardiogram result including hemodynamic status, cardiac ischemia, and drugs to name a few but there are many more. Understand that the echocardiogram result is a picture of the heart function/structure at a given time, namely at the time the test is conducted. Although there is the capability to acquire 3 d images now, mostly the images are 2 dimensional and can capture misleading results if a thorough exam is not performed to get a complete picture. There are no "false" results per se just perhaps incomplete and at one point in time which may change at another time.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I masturbate even though I had a echocardiogram I haven't got results it's been 2 days? Would it be safe?
Hard to say: Since we have no idea what your state of health is or why you had the study, it is difficult to say whether any type of "workout" would be appropriate.
On echocardiogram results it says normal echo. But I saw lvpw 0.7 and ivs 0.8. Is the ratio ok for these? 25 yr female..
Yes.: Those are measurements of your heart's wall thickness. Your values are completely normal.See 1 more doctor answer
My echocardiogram report stated that I have stage1 abnormal diastolic funtion is this somthing to worry about and can it be reversed?
Maybe; yes.: Early stages of diastolic dysfunction (heart stiffening) may be attributable to hypertension (high blood pressure) depeding on your medical history. If so, certain blood pressure medications like enalapril, lisinopril, (the "-prils"), or losartan, valsartan (the "-sartans") at RIGHT DOSE can reverse this condition over time. You are at stage 1 (earliest stage) so you probably don't have symptoms.

Echo: You were probably referred for an echo upon your physician hearing the murmur - if echo demonstrates normal cardiac structure and function, the murmur is what we refer to as an "innocent murmur" - this means it is being caused just by hearing the normal sound of blood going through the heart. Discuss your concerns/questions with your cardiologist.
Echocardiogram came back normal. I noticed on report left ventricular posterior wall. 7. Is this ok? The results were normal. Female, 28.
I had an echocardiogram done recently, and the results showed that my septal wall measurement = 1.5. Is it possible that I have cardiomyopathy?
Possible: But more complicated than merely a measurement. The quality of the echo image is crucial along with the rest of the cardiac findings. Then symptoms must be evaluated. This is very comprehensive and the conversation must be done with your cardiologist who has reviewed the echo. 1.5 cm is thick but must be placed in context.
I was diagnosed with MVP and have some leakage based on my echocardiogram. What's normal and abnormal? Thank you
Go With The Flow: Normal is no regurgitation (back flow) in the heart. In the 5-10% of people who have MVP, maybe up to 20% back flow (regurgitation) is OK. Beyond that, it depends on your overall health and what symptoms you have. Severe would be more than about 60% back flow (that is, blood not flowing in the correct direction, thus putting more strain on the heart to pump blood).Your dentist should know about it.
About 15 months ago I had an echocardiogram which led to good results. What is the likely of having heart problems since my last test?
Heart problems: There are many kinds of 'heart problems'. Having a normal echocardiogram rules out many of them and is unlikely to change without something happening to you and signalling its presence by symptoms. Those 'heart problems' not demonstrated by echocardiogram, of course, aren't included.
