Bicuspid Aortic Valve Mild Regurgitation
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
A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
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
My echo states atrial septal aneurysm, borderline mitral valve prolapse, trace mitral regurg, trace tricuspid regurg, trace pulmonic regurg. worried?
Minor abnormalities: Though they need to be followed to see if they worsen. Your cardiologist is your best resource ...Read more
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
Leaky: Your heart valves are supposed to be one way doors. Blood is supposed to be pushed out in one direction with the valve (door) closing behind. If the door doesn't close completely and or some blood leaks backward it is called regurgitation. A little bit is not a problem, a large amount can make the heart need to work too hard. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NO.: Aortic valve replacement in a patient with a bicuspid aortic valve may require repair of an ascending aortic aneurysm if present. Although valves are sewn in place the same, the location is totally different with particular anatomic differences. The mitral closes in systole and the aortic valve in diastole. For the mitral need to actually open the heart. For the aortic its done thru the aorta. ...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
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
The aortic valve is one of 4 valves in the heart, each of which separates 2 cardiac chambers. It opens when blood is actively ejected from the left ventricle into the aorta artery, to be carried to the rest of the body. It then closes firmly to prevent blood from flowing backwards, while it passively continues to flow forward to body's vital organs. When next heartbeat ...Read more
Normal aortic valve has three leaflets. Bicuspid aortic valve developmental abnormality that has two leaflets instead of three. Looks like fish mouth. Prone to disease over time does create murmur frequently. Calcium deposits on valve can cause aortic stenosis limited excursion restricts flow. Can be ...Read more
