Could headaches be caused by trivial tricuspid and bicuspid valve regurgitation?

Could headaches be caused by trivial tricuspid and bicuspid valve regurgitation?

Very unlikely: Pfo (persistent foramen ovale) has been associated with recalcitrant headache, and some individuals experience dramatic improvement with PFO closed surgically. ...Read more

Valve (Definition)

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

Mitral valve mildly thickened and is trivial regurgitation and my tricuspid and pulmonary valves have trivial regurgitation what does this mean?

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

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?

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 more

I have recently been diagnosed with mild aortic and bicuspid valve regurgitation. I'm still waiting for more testing. Can i go back to exercising?

Valvar regurgitation: In general mild valvar regurgitation would not preclude exercise training. You should ask the question of the physicians who know you and diagnosed the valve problem(s) to get their input. ...Read more

Is it okay to have trace mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitation?

Yes: Trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation by itself is nothing to worry about. There many people who live normal lives with this. This usually diagnosed with an echo. The echo gives a lot more additional information so make sure you have conversation with your doctor to make sure you you understand. ...Read more

Do both tricuspid valve stenosis and regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?

Do both tricuspid valve stenosis and regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?

Possibly: Tricuspid stenosis is more likely to cause hypertrophy (thickening) of the right ventricle, whereas tricuspid regurgitation is more likely to cause dilatation, where the chamber increases in volume without much thickening. ...Read more

Palpitations off and on with tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation. Is there anything I can do to alleviate palpitations?

Palpitations: On a simple level avoid cigarettes, alcohol and more than one cup of coffee or tea or other stimulants. Take your antihypertensive medications and discuss the situation with your PCP or cardiologist. ...Read more

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 more

Kidney function: Although this is theoretically possible, I would suggest kidney function studies including blood, urine and reanl ultrasouns. Consult you physician and make an appointment for follow up. ...Read more

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

Echocardiogram results. Mildly thick mitral valve. Tricuspid valve structurally normal but, shows trace of regurgitation. ?

Both normal: Both are normal. All normal people have tricuspid regurgitation. This is a 100% normal finding. Thickening of the mitral valve is over-read. It appears in many reports. It has absolutely no clinical significance. Honestly! Please don't give it another thought. ...Read more

29yo male I have a bicuspid aortic valve with minor to mild concentric aortic regurgitation how concerned should I be for  problem in the near future?

Minor: Need to be on a surveillance program coordinated with cardiologist to follow aortic insufficiency and aortic enlargement. Need to avoid hypertension and be careful about activities that cause rapid rise in blood pressure like heavy weightlifting or strenuous abrupt effort. Maintain good weight and activity ...Read more

Hello Is it safe to take 360mg verapamil daily for chronic cluster headaches when you have a tiny Mitral valve regurgitation 1/4?

Hello Is it safe to take 360mg verapamil daily for chronic cluster headaches when you have a tiny Mitral valve regurgitation 1/4?

Recommended: The treatment of choice for the prevention of both episodic and chronic cluster headache is verapamil Verapamil also increasing the size of the left ventricle, thereby reducing the degree of prolapse. You have one medication with multiple benefits. It has been estimated that 10% of cluster patients may not respond to medications and you are the lucky one. Take care. ...Read more

My cardiologist said that I have mild mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitation but they are not harmful.but now I have ectopics when laying down. Why?

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
