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
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 ...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 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
