Mom has pulmonary htn and mild mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. Do these play any role or complication in a radical laparo. Nephrectomy?

Mom has pulmonary htn and mild mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. Do these play any role or complication in a radical laparo. Nephrectomy?

Severity?: Mild mr and tr would not increase her risk. Any significant elevation of pulmonary artery pressure would. It depends on severity. She obviously has had an echo. Check with her cardiologist to be sure she is medically as fit as she can be prior to major surgery. ...Read more

What is mild & physiological mitral & tricuspid regurgitation?

What is mild & physiological mitral & tricuspid regurgitation?

Normal finding: The mitral and tricuspid valves are the valves between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. When the heart contracts a tiny amount of blood may go backwards through the valves. This is called physiological regurgitation and is normal. When it becomes significantly more it may cause symptoms. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

What is the cure for mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation?

What is the cure for mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation?

? cure?: Your only cure for leaky valves is replacement with new ones. Since this would require major surgery and risk, it is not done when things are mild. If or when the leaks lead to some other heart issues, they would usually be managed with medication. ...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?

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

I had my 2d echo results revealed mild mitral, tricuspid, pulmonary regurgitation?

Follow up regularly: It is not uncommon to have leaky valves. At your age, you were probably born with them. The main concern is is that it can cause your heart to enlarge over time. Following up regularly with a cardiologist will catch any changes early. ...Read more

I had my 2d echo last sept. 4, 2013. Results reveaved I had mild mitral, tricuspid, and pulmonary regurgitation. But I don't any untoward symptom?

Not uncommon: Minor/mild degrees of regurgitation are frequently identified on echo and is not necessarily considered as abnormal. Your lack of symptoms is not unexpected. ...Read more

Cardiology: I am sorry to hear that your health is complicating your pregnancy. But, I am not sure how a stranger can help on the internet. It sounds like your OB will have you monitored closely with a cardiologist as well. Follow their advise to the tee. ...Read more

I have anterior mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation & im 15weeks pregnant, a c operation is better?

I have anterior mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation & im 15weeks pregnant, a c operation is better?

Not really: Mvp is a very common condition in women, over diagnosed in the 80's and 90's.
The echo doppler is a very sensitive tool to find "valvular leaks= regurgitation"
the fact that the leaks are "mild" make them more likely without clinical significance and should not be a contraindication for vaginal delivery.
Discuss with your pcp. ...Read more

Old echo determined trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. New one determined Mild regurgitation of both. Does this mean it has worsened?

Old echo determined trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. New one determined Mild regurgitation of both. Does this mean it has worsened?

Not much difference: When your reports say or use words like: Mild, slight, it means that it is a minimal change. So you do not have to pay much attention to it although your doctor ordering such tests is obliged to interpret/explain to you what it all means. Have you gone back to see your doctor after the tests were done and completed? ...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

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 more

I have mitral valve regurgitation with tricuspid regurgitation with mild pulmonary hypertension and dystolic disfunction. Should I be worried?

I have mitral valve regurgitation with tricuspid regurgitation with mild pulmonary hypertension and dystolic disfunction. Should I be worried?

Maybe -- it depends: Valve regurgitation becomes a serious problem when it is severe, and at that point it might require surgery. If the valve regurgitation is only mild or moderate, it can be followed by your physician. It sounds as though with your conditions, maintaining excellent blood pressure control will be very important. ...Read more

Is it serious when you are diagnosed with mitral and tricuspid regurgitation?

Depends: Almost 100% of the population has tricuspid regurgitation. It's normal. Nearly everyone also has some degree, usually mild, of mitral regurgitation. The issue comes when either is severe. ...Read more

Are mitral regurgitation and tricuspid regurgitation dangerous to have?

Varies some: The diagnostic echocardiogram that picks this up is so sensitive that it can pick up regurgitation that is considered trivial. If so it would have little impact on function. It can also find it when it is major. These terms and their importance in a study should be explained by the treating physician that orders the test. ...Read more

Is a mitral regurgitation and a tricuspid regurgitation dangerous to have?

Is a mitral regurgitation and a tricuspid regurgitation dangerous to have?

Mitral valve: The mitral valve has to open properly to let blood flow into the left ventricle from the atrium. If it doesn't, we call this stenosis. It has to close to keep the blood flowing toward the body, if it doesn't we call this regurgitation or insufficiency. Either or both problems can exist with the valve if its abnormal. Insufficiency is more common. ...Read more

What is trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation noted on an echo? Anything to worry about?

Regurgitation: No, these are very common findings on echo. By themselves these are harmless. Your doctor should be able to tell if there was any other findings of any concern. ...Read more

What is "trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation" noted on an echo? Anything to worry about?

Valve regurgitation: Echocardiograms and doppler studies have become very sophisticated that they can identify the most minor abnormalities. "trace" findings are not harmful and nothing to worry about but your tests should be repeated every so often as recommended by your cardiologist to monitor these findings. Perhaps, in due time, these findings can get worse and be treated accordingly as they are discovered. ...Read more

I have had pericarditis in 2008. My most recent echo showed trace mitral an tricuspid regurgitation and a bright pericardium. What can this mean?

I have had pericarditis in 2008. My most recent echo showed trace mitral an tricuspid regurgitation and a bright pericardium. What can this mean?

Things to watch: The trace tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation may be nothing, but should be followed, or monitored by an echocardiogram, every year or every other year.
The bright pericardium is likely the result of the pericarditis (which is inflammation of the sack the heart sits in)
the worry is that this brightness becomes scar tissue, that could cause some squeezing of the heart, also followed by echo. ...Read more
