Are Mitral Regurgitation And Tricuspid Regurgitation Dangerous To Have
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 more
A disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back ...Read more
Mitral valve: The mitral valve has to open properly to let blood flow into the left ventricle from the atrium. If it doesn't, we call this stenosis. It has to close to keep the blood flowing toward the body, if it doesn't we call this regurgitation or insufficiency. Either or both problems can exist with the valve if its abnormal. Insufficiency is more common. ...Read more
What is trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation noted on an echo? Anything to worry about?
What is "trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation" noted on an echo? Anything to worry about?
Valve regurgitation: Echocardiograms and doppler studies have become very sophisticated that they can identify the most minor abnormalities. "trace" findings are not harmful and nothing to worry about but your tests should be repeated every so often as recommended by your cardiologist to monitor these findings. Perhaps, in due time, these findings can get worse and be treated accordingly as they are discovered. ...Read more
I have moderate mitral regurgitation, mild tricuspid regurgitation and advanced diastolic dysfunction with transmitral pseunormal. On meds, but next?
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 more
I was diagnosed with pvc, aortic regurgitation, moderate mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation, hyperlipemia, & adv diastolic dys. Prognosi?
Hard to answer: You have several valves which are leaking. You only mention moderate amount of mitral regurge. But more important is the size of the pumping chambers of your heart and the ejection fraction (how well it squeezes). You have had a stress test so did it show evidence of blockages? There are many people with mild or moderate leaking valves who do very well. You need to discuss with you doctor. ...Read more

Old echo determined trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. New one determined Mild regurgitation of both. Does this mean it has worsened?
Not much difference: When your reports say or use words like: Mild, slight, it means that it is a minimal change. So you do not have to pay much attention to it although your doctor ordering such tests is obliged to interpret/explain to you what it all means. Have you gone back to see your doctor after the tests were done and completed? ...Read more
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
My echochardiogram states I have trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation and a bright perichardium. I had pericharditis in 2008. What should I do?
See below: Have your cardiologist follow up with u as it can cause a condition called constructive percarditis in future! ...Read more
I have had pericarditis in 2008. My most recent echo showed trace mitral an tricuspid regurgitation and a bright pericardium. What can this mean?
Things to watch:
The trace tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation may be nothing, but should be followed, or monitored by an echocardiogram, every year or every other year.
The bright pericardium is likely the result of the pericarditis (which is inflammation of the sack the heart sits in)
the worry is that this brightness becomes scar tissue, that could cause some squeezing of the heart, also followed by echo. ...Read more
Can the left ventricular temporarily be dilated from Mitral and tricuspid regurgitation? Or is it permanent? Systolic and diastolic function normal
Question stream: Following your question stream you should see a cardiologist and be evaluated and be sure to ask the cardiologist the questions you placed here. Answers specific to you need to come from someone with the information specific to you. ...Read more

My echo shows trace mitral, aortic, and pulmonary insufficiency as well as trace tricuspid regurgitation. What does this mean? Should I worry?

I had a echocardiogram. Results say mitral valve demonstrates sclerosis of the leaflets and trace regurgitation. And trace tricuspid regurgitation.?
Findings. Symptoms?: These are findings on the echocardiogram in the view of the Cardiologist who was looking at the pictures. The real question is why the echocardiogram was ordered to begin with. Were you having symptoms? What problem was the test trying to identify? Generally, trace valve regurgitation is "physiologic" - that is, common & symptom-less. Sclerosis means thickening - so the mitral valve could be stiff ...Read more
HEART The mitral valve leaflets appeared thickened, there is a trace of tricuspid regurgitation & pulmonic valvular regurgitation. What does that mean?
I have mitral valve regurgitation with tricuspid regurgitation with mild pulmonary hypertension and dystolic disfunction. Should I be worried?
Maybe -- it depends: Valve regurgitation becomes a serious problem when it is severe, and at that point it might require surgery. If the valve regurgitation is only mild or moderate, it can be followed by your physician. It sounds as though with your conditions, maintaining excellent blood pressure control will be very important. ...Read more

I have anterior mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation & im 15weeks pregnant, a c operation is better?
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.

Sort of...: It is possible to place a clip on the leaflets for an alfieri-type result. Also, annuplasty rings can be placed in the coronary sinus to change the configuration of the mitral valve. However, these maneuvers don't work too well. Ultimately, if the mitral valve really needs repair then surgery by a cardiothoracic surgeon with a *particular expertise in mitral valve repair* is the way to go. ...Read more
Some causes are....: Mitral valve prolapse, destruction of valve structure by degeneration or infection, heart attack and scar disrupting the conical shape of the heart or tearing the tethers of the mitral valve, enlargement and weakness of heart muscle and delayed conduction of electrical impulse from the upper chamber to the lower chamber of the heart and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy tugging at the valve. ...Read more
M.valve incompetence: Mitral regurgitation or mitral insufficiency or mitral incompetence is a disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back to the left atrium. ...Read more
No: Either medical or surgical treatment maybe required. ...Read more
I think of mitral valve prolapse as a description of how the valve closes (the leaflets bow into the atrium). Regurgitation is actual leaking of blood back in the atrium. You can have prolapse without regurgitation. And not everyone with regurgitation has prolapse.
There is a group of patients that develop regurge from prolapse, but not everyone. ...Read more
