Varies some: The diagnostic echocardiogram that picks this up is so sensitive that it can pick up regurgitation that is considered trivial.If so it would have little impact on function.It can also find it when it is major. These terms and their importance in a study should be explained by the treating physician that orders the test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My echo results- trivial mitral valve regurgitation, mild (1+-2+) pulmonic valve regurgitation, trivial (-1+) tricuspid valve regurgitation- normal?
Missing Data: Some important data are missing before i can say normal.What is pa pressure. What about lv function etc. If they r normal then only i can comment on it sorry! ...Read more

2 questions: Aortic stenosis w/o symptoms has good prognosis. Symptomatic as has 5, 3, and 2 yr life expectancy depending on symptoms. Chest pain (5), passing out (3) and heart failure (2) yrs. This improves if the valve is replaced. Mitral valve prolapse does not significantly affect your prognosis by itself. Some though can worsen and begin to leak. This can also lead to heart failure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Plz xplainEcho says EF 60% Mild mitral valve prolapse.Left Atrium mildly dilated.mild mitral regurg.cannot rule out bicuspid aortic valve considerTEE?
Had a cath?: The echo says there might be a structural abnormality of the aortic valve and a leak of the mitral valve with resultant dilation of left atrium. If you had the cardiac cath you list any time recently, more information should be available from that. A TEE is a transesophageal echo which gives us better pictures than a transthoracic echo. You should discuss this echo with your Doc ...Read more
Very small leak: The mitral valve prevents blood from flowing backwards out of the main pumping chamber of the heart (left ventricle). When a valve leaks we call this regugitation or insufficiency. One method of describing a leak is to classify it as trivial, mild, moderate, or severe. A trivial leak should not affect you heart in any way. A lot of people of this and never need anything done for it. ...Read more
HCM: Not sure what you're asking. Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy in series with a bicuspid aortic valve has a potential for real trouble if the bicuspid becomes stenotic.
