Echocardio results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Is this normal?

Echocardio results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Is this normal?

No.: This may be the result of longstanding hypertension. The doc who ordered your test should know more about how to interpret your results. ...Read more

Echo results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Mixd plaques no stenosis found. Pls expln.

More info: So i'm a little confused because an echocardiogram can't really see plaques. I can explain the concentric lvh: this means that the heart muscle is thickened; the most common reasons are because of longstanding high blood pressure or narrowing of the aortic valve. ...Read more

Left Ventricle size.: 6- 10 mm is normal thickness, 11- 13 mm is mild left ventricular hypertrophy , 14-17 moderate and > 17 mm is severe . More than just septal thickness, they see ratio of the spatial thickens to left V posterior wall (back ) . They utilize the septal diameter for calculating left ventricular mass as a whole fromHypertension, aortic valve dz can cause, IHSS,genetically mediated asymmetric thickness ...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 more

Plz xplainEcho says EF 60% Mild mitral valve prolapse.Left Atrium mildly dilated.mild mitral regurg.cannot rule out bicuspid aortic valve considerTEE?

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

Mother 83 yrs has gd IV mitral & tricuspid regurg gr III aortic regurg conc left ventricular hypertrophy, mild pulmon hyper ef 57% rest is ok advice?

Symptoms: The level of exertion is often dictated by symptoms. Rest is ok, but staying active may help her be more in tune with her body and may allow her to recognize when she is starting to get worse. I always encourage my patients to stay as active as appropriate. ...Read more

Cardiologist says very reassuringEcho?
Trans V gradient 8mmHg LV Dimensionally Normal preserved Systolic Doppler Mild LV Diastolic dysfunction. Agree?

Echocardiogram: The findings are not normal but have to be judged in context of your mitral valve repair. The abnormalities described are not hemodynamically significant and won't impact your performance status. I can understand why your cardiologist is reassured by your echocardiogram. ...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. 6-Mode

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

Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?

Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?

Yes: A murmur is just a sound made by blood flowing through your heart and valves. If the Echo is normal, trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation is probably normal for you. Benign means not indicative of pathology or not pathological. You have a benign murmur. ...Read more

Had a cardiac mri. Finding: mild lv cavity dilation, normal lv systolic function; lvef 62%.Trivial pericardial & pleural effusion?

Sounds pretty normal: Ef is normal, tiny effusions are nothing to worry about. Was valvular function normal - ie no stenosis or regurgitation? Also, how much dilation? Was a volume given? Would followup with a cardiologist and make sure you optimize your therapy for high blood pressure among other conditions. The lv dilation and pericardial effusions could be followed with echocardiography. ...Read more

Per echo ef 50-55%, rv size upper limit of normal, mild mv regurge, mild-moderate tricuspid insufficiency, rvsp 44 mghg.  Next step right heart cath?

No, unless: Unless you are having shortness of breath that does not improve with standard medical therapy , based on those echo findings there's no need for a right heart catheterization. Pulmonary hypertension and tailored management for pulmonary hypertension is another reason to perform right heart catheterization with testing during that procedure. ...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
