Mild Cardiomegaly Treatment
What should I do? My echocardiagram shows mild mitral regurgitation, mild diastolic dysfunction, mild tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension
Valve issue: There is a valve that separates the right side of your heart from the artery leading to your lungs. It's called the pulmonic valve. It should allow blood to flow towards your lungs but not back towards the right heart. Regurgitation means a small amount of blood moves backwards across the valve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had an echocardiogram show severe mitral regurgitation, moderate /severe tricuspid regurgitation &mild to moder pulmonic regurge. Is surgery option?
Mitral regurgitation: You should have this discussion with a cardiologist who can evaluate you and your status and review your data. Surgery is an option for many patients with severe mitral regurgitation but more is involved in the evaluation than what you have above, any recommendation from here has to be to see a cardiologist personally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?
Left heart large: The main pumping chamber of the heart ( l ventricle) is evenly increased in size so that the pumping cavity is a bit smaller. The priming pump ( l atrium) is mildly enlarged. This is very likely due to uncontrolled high BP over many years. Because it is mild i would not expect any symptoms or functional difficulty at all. Treatment is to control bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CXR's show mild cardiamegaly 4 many yrs. Could it with Type II DM & Asthma cause Mod.Aortic Stenosis &? Mild hypokensis of Apex. This DX A.S/HA new
Possibly.: It would make more sense for the cardiomegaly to result from aortic stenosis because the heart would build up muscle of the left ventricle pumping against the stenosis to get blood to the rest of the body, but they may be unrelated. Hypokinesis may represent ischemia or lack of adequate oxygen to your inferior heart. Diabetes certainly plays a role in heart disease especially atherosclerosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See a cardilogist: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (hcm) is a significant and lifelong type of heart disease that can potentially have serious complications. Everyone with hcm should be monitored closely by a cardiologist. Treatment options include medications and surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...Read more
Pulmonary stenosis: Mild to moderate pulmonary valve stenosis generally has a good prognosis. Mild pulmonary valve stenosis usually does not progress, but moderate pulmonary valve stenosis may worsen over time and require surgery. Treatment is generally highly successful allowing people to live high quality lives provided that they do not have other comorbid problems. ...Read more
Can left untreated moderate pulmHTN be dangerous?what is the rate of progression without treatment?with(pulm+mitral+tricuspid mild regurgitation)
Yes/uncertain: Untreated disease will eventually lead to heart failure/death. Timing is unpredictable and effect of treatment varies with individual patients. You need to get into treatment and educate yourself as much as possible about what you can do for yourself.Complacency can only speed up a poor outcome. ...Read more
Yes: In theory "mild chf" as a syndrome is virtually always reversible. The more important question is what is the trigger for the heart failure, i.e. Is it high bp, is it muscle injury from an old heart attack, is it poor kidney function etc. The exact cause of the heart failure is the most important bit of information to know. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
