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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
What should I do? My echocardiagram shows mild mitral regurgitation, mild diastolic dysfunction, mild tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension
I had echo 3 weeks ago...it showed moderate mitral regurgitation, mild tricuspid regurgitation, and mildly enlarged laft atrial...my RSVP was calculated 37....mild pulmonary hypertension. My question is would the mitral valve regurgitation be the cause of

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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
