Hepatomegaly With Heart Defect
Small left sided heart with abnormal septal motion in ventricle EF 60-65% heart is normal including thickness. Possible pulmonary hypertension cause?
MRI: If you have severe pulmonary hypertension, you may have Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. This is potentially a serious diagnosis. Intracardiac and intrapulmonary shunting must be ruled out. A cardiac MRI and nuclear shunt test can make this determination. These tests are likely only available at a major referral center - London. Good luck. ...Read more
Hepatomegaly, otherwise known as an enlarged liver, is a clinical finding in which the liver is found to be larger than is normal, either by the physical exam from a physician or by imaging such as CT scan or ultrasound. This can be due to alcoholism, hepatitis viruses, inherited liver ...Read more
Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?
More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done. Any recent viral infection? Pericarditis? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ecg w marked sinus bradycardia. Septal infarct age undetermined. Abnormal ecg. Heart murmur w left valve leakage. History of chest pain. Is this bad?
Rare defect: Absent pulmonary valve syndrome is a rare congenital heart defect. Some of the features are similar to tetralogy of fallot. An important difference in most babies with absent pulmonary valve syndrome is that the pulmonary arteries are very large, and often associated with problems with the airways. Surgery is required to repair the problems in the heart and repair the pulmonary arteries. ...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
No: Only when the pulmonary hypertension causes the right ventricle to dilate (enlarge) does heart failure occur. This type of failure may affect the right side of the heart causing increased leg swelling, fluid buildup in the abdomen and elevation of liver enzymes. If the swelling of the right heart becomes severe it can affect the function of the left side of the heart and cause pulmonary edema. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What can cause my RA and RV enlarged + tricuspid regur, without present of pulmonary hypertention or mitral valve disease? Is it possible congenital?
Mgt/workup: It is possible that the right sided heart problem is related to a change in the anatomy on that side. The leaky valve makes the heart work more with each beat. Since you have experienced leg swelling, the regurgitation may have been significant enough to allow back up of the blood, resulting in leg edema. The valve may be repaired to alleviate this cause. It is important to follow up. ...Read more
Not typical: The classic VSD physical finding is of course a holosystolic murmur. However, if the VSD is subarterial or supracristal, it can distort the aortic valve, sometimes causing leaflet prolapse. If this results in significant aortic insufficiency, there will be an associated diastolic murmur (with the insufficiency representing an indication for surgical repair). ...Read more
Can one have valve regurgitation, atrial septal defects, or ventricular septal defects but still have normal and murmurless heart sounds?
A small left atrium normal in thickness on my echo with abnormal septal motion. Heart structure normal with EF 65%. Possible pulmonary hypertension?
Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?
Abnormal septal motion in ventricle, EF 60-65% small LA and LV normal in thickness gd systolic function and sinus tachy 120bpm pulmonary Hypertension?
Variable: Could be a dorv double outlet right ventricle which can incorporate the defects mentioned. ...Read more
What does it mean if a patient with congestive heart failure has cyanosis coupled with liver and kidney failure?
An echocardiogram revealed mild mitral valve thickening & prolapse. Can this be causing a fast heart rate/tiredness?
