Could Headaches Be Caused By Trivial Tricuspid And Bicuspid Valve Regurgitation
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
I have subpulmonic vsd with left to right shunt with gradient - 86mmhg. Will i need surgery? Also I have a trivial tricuspid valve regurgitation.
Mitral valve mildly thickened and is trivial regurgitation and my tricuspid and pulmonary valves have trivial regurgitation what does this mean?
Regurgitation: Modern ultrasound imaging is highly sensitive and often shows trivial amounts of valvar insufficiency in patients. Usually this is of no clinical significance. There are situations, however, when actual early valve abnormalities can progress and get worse in the future. Ask your Doc who has read the study whether you have a problem. ...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

Bicuspid aortic valve , aortic root dilated at 4.6cm, no stenosis, trivial regurg, cardiologist not worried at all, i'm really anxious, should I be?
No you shouldn't.: Dear themalteser, bicuspid aortic valve is very common, affecting 1 to 2% of the general population. In fact, it is the most common congenital heart defect. Most people who have a bucspid aortic valve have a well functioning valve - like you do. The only recommendation is to continue to have follow up visits with your cardiologist and maintain a healthy lifestyle. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I have a severe bicuspid aortic valve regurgitation I am 22 years of age I have symptoms how will i know if im about to die?
See a cardiologist: Aortic regurgitation results in stretching of the pumping chamber of the heart due to the increase blood volume and pressure. Patients often do not have symptoms until the muscle is stretched so far that it does not contract well. By that time, repair may not improve symptoms. It is important to have measurements of the heart size and aorta to know when valve replacement is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can both tricuspid valve stenosis and tricuspid regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?
Sort of: The right atrium tends to enlarge somewhat with both conditions; it is more so with tricuspid stenosis. Technically though it is an enlargement, not a hypertrophy (which means muscular thickening). Ra enlargement with tr would imply either severe tr or very elevated pulmonary resistance pressures. ...Read more

These findings are: most likely unrelated as all of us experience occasional extra heart beats. You should go back to your cardiologist and tell him/her about your new symptoms. A long term monitor and perhaps a short course of drug therapy might be warranted. Discuss this with your health care professional. ...Read more
30 yo female previously diagnosed w/ Mitral Valve w/ regurgitation and Pulsatile tinnitus. Advice on daily headaches and RHR staying between 100-138?
Hard working heart: Hi keishat, depending on your level of mitral regurg, it sounds like your heart is increasing its rate to keep up with the body's need for blood. At 30, your heart can certainly handle this hr, but if you have symptoms(shortness of breath, weakness, palpitations)or as you get older, you may need to see a cardiologist about your faulty valve and be considered for replacement. hope that helps. ...Read more
