Aortic Regurgitation Life Expectancy
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
Variable: Mild regurgitation = normal life expectancy severe regurgitation, sudden onset = death in hours, days, weeks or months depending on other factors and with no treatment. Severe chronic regurgitation=good prognosis with treatment; without treatment = chronic congestive heart failure and eventual death. Hard to be more specific without more facts. ...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
Too broad: If the valve is replaced in a timely fashion then life expectancy is good. If left untreated and is severe, life expectancy is severly limited . The ultimate measure of the pts long term mortality is the left ventricular ejection fraction. The more normal it is the better the mortality rates. ...Read more
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
Not necessarily: They are two separate entities and may coexist but generally are not causative of one another. ...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. If the bicuspid valve isn't stenotic, then the physiology is dictated by the ihss primarily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Variable: Mitral stenosis can cause disabling heart failure in the 40s or lesser symptoms later in life. The disease is becoming quite uncommon in United States and is more often seen in patients born overseas. In cases detected early, and the valve is repaired or replaced, the life expectancy should be the same as a healthy patient of the same age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
