Has Mvp Ever Been Missed On An Echocardiogram
I was diagnosed with MVP and have some leakage based on my echocardiogram . What's normal and abnormal ? Thank you
Go With The Flow: Normal is no regurgitation (back flow) in the heart. In the 5-10% of people who have MVP, maybe up to 20% back flow (regurgitation) is OK.Beyond that, it depends on your overall health and what symptoms you have. Severe would be more than about 60% back flow (that is, blood not flowing in the correct direction, thus putting more strain on the heart to pump blood).Your dentist should know about it. ...Read more
Had an echocardiogram done which confirmed the prolapse ( MVP ). Am I going to have a surgery as the condition gets worth ?
I am 27 and have just been diagnosed with trivial mitral regurgitation but no mention of mvp on my echocardiogram results. Is this likely progress?
Don't worry: Trivial mitral regurgitation is just that - trivial. Do not worry too much about this very common finding. Just file the knowledge away, and if you ever have another echo (which you just might never need) you and your doctor can see if there has been any change. In all likelihood there won't be. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Got Echocardiogram done due to a heart murmur. Echo shows Mild MVP w/ Trace regurgitation, EF 67%, no symptoms. HELP! Is this really bad? PCP says its common in young thin women. Just need yearly echo to follow up. Can I still drink coffee?
Yes and its not bad: The doctor is correct this is common, very common to find MVP and trace regard, What it means is what you heart contracts the mitral valve leafs kind of bend backwards and open a little allowing a small amount of blood to flow backwards. Some patients feel palpitations, or have irregular heart bats that when worked up we find the MVP. You can drink coffee just in moderation ...Read more
My doctor thinks I have a mitral valve prolapse , however there is a 10 month wait for an ethnocardiogram to determine this. The symptoms have persisted and at points have gotten worse . What should I do?
Yes: A resting echocardiogram is not the test of choice to diagnose a right coronary artery thrombosis. A CT angiogram would diagnose that, or a conventional invasive angiogram ought to elucidate that finding. This is a very specific finding. A stress echocardiogram might suggest right coronary artery insufficiency by revealing regional wall motion abnormality. See a cardiologist. ...Read more
In an adult, is an echocardiogram likely to miss a small vsd (small, but causing a murmur)? Or is it reliable to rule it out? Usually found as child?
Unlikely: If we can hear the murmur with a stethoscope, then an echo probe will usually be able to show the blood crossing the vsd, even if the 2-d imaging doesn't clearly show the defect. However, if the echo windows are very poor (e.g., with obesity, chest wall deformities or fused ribs, lung disease like emphysema, etc.), then it may be hard to visualize the heart at all, and a vsd could then be missed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can hypertrophic cardiomyopathy be missed during an echocardiogram? (A regular echo, done while lying down.)
I have had regular stress test. Nuclear stress test echocardiogram and heart catherization. All normal what's chance missed blockage or pulm htn?
Can echocardiography miss asd? I had about 5 and after, 25 years a CT scan just picked up a papvr. I was wondering if, they could, have missed asd as well? As i know sometimes asd and papvr coincide. ..
Depends: It depends on whether or not you have mitral valve regurgitation and how severe. There are a whole lot of mvp diagnosed patients who actually do not have it per the new criteria, so any further advice i would give you would be mere speculation because I do not even know if you truly have mvp. However, in the absence of mitral regurgitation, mvp is not serious. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
