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

Valve (Definition)

A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...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 a heart ultra sound and it says that I have tricuspid valve regurgitation (mild) and mitral valve regurgitation (mild) but all else is norm. Is this ok. Can this kill me?

I had a heart ultra sound and it says that I have tricuspid valve regurgitation (mild) and mitral valve regurgitation (mild) but all else is norm. Is this ok. Can this kill me?

Probably not: Mild regurgitation of valves is usually not a problem. You will need to be followed routinely by your doctor. Sometimes these leaks can worsen over time. In that case you may need surgery at some point. It will also be important to take antibiotics before any procedure including dental. ...Read more

I have mitral valve prolapse with mild tricuspid valve regurgitation is it normal to have lots of pvcs an sometimes a fast heart rate with pvcs i?

I have mitral valve prolapse with mild tricuspid valve regurgitation is it normal to have lots of pvcs an sometimes a fast heart rate with pvcs i?

YES: PVC's and intermittent PAT (tachycardia) are common arrythmias associated with Mitral Valve Prolapse and there is medication if this is causing symptoms...

Ask your Cardiologist (or PCP if sh/she ordered the cardiac echo)
Hope this helps!

Is it okay to have trace mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitation?

Yes: Trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation by itself is nothing to worry about. There many people who live normal lives with this. This usually diagnosed with an echo. The echo gives a lot more additional information so make sure you have conversation with your doctor to make sure you you understand. ...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

My echo reads trace of mitral&tricuspid valve regurgitation is that normal? Have had chronic fatigue for months - have scleroderma and gastroparesis

My echo reads trace of mitral&tricuspid valve regurgitation is that normal? Have had chronic fatigue for months - have scleroderma and gastroparesis

Trivial: These findings on an echocardiogram are common and insignificant and shouldn't cause fatigue or any other symptoms. I assume that the rest of the echocardiogram was normal. ...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

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

Had a test ran and it shows that I have a mild mitral and tricuspid valve issue, But dr said not to worry about it for 20 to 30 years should I be worry?

Valves: Mild mitral and tricuspid insufficiency are very common and often stay stable throughout life. If your doctor is comfortable with your status and encouraging you not to worry, I'd advise taking that advice. ...Read more

Echocardiogram results mitral valve: mild insufficiency and tricuspid valve: very mild insufficiency. Should I be referred to cardiologist?

Echocardiogram results mitral valve: mild insufficiency and tricuspid valve: very mild insufficiency. Should I be referred to cardiologist?

No: Mild valvular insufficiency is common and does not cause problems. It may be worth periodic echocardiographic follow up to ensure the valves do not get worse and ensure timely intervention if the insufficiency is worsening.
Any follow-up should be discussed with your doctor. ...Read more

Had a doppler echo for evaluation of murmur. Looking at report says aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valve normal. But is says nothing about the pulmonic valve. Nothing at all. This normal?

Had a doppler echo for evaluation of murmur. Looking at report says aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valve normal. But is says nothing about the pulmonic valve. Nothing at all. This normal?

Most likely normal: The report should have commented on pulmonic valve as a standard practice. Sometimes pulmonic valve cannot be seen, but usually it is mentioned in the report. It is highly unlikely to have abnormal pulmonic valve and no comment made. Most cases pulmonic valves are normal. I check with your physician first, but would not loose sleep over it. ...Read more

My cardiologist said that have mitral valve and tricuspid valve leakage but they are insignificant. Is it safe for me to exercise?

Leakage: 'Insignificant' valve leak means you should be about normal. Having said that, your best course is to ask the Doctor who knows your exact situation, not just what you have provided. ...Read more

I had a Echocardiogram. I had a heart attack when I was 31. I am now 57 next month. My test showed rheumatic d/o mitral tricuspid valve pericardium mass. Can't get into a cardiologist for another month. Not sure if I should worry or not. Thanks?

Unfortunately the: Description you have given of the ECHO findings makes no sense at all. If you are not having symptoms it is probably OK to wait until you can see the cardiologist. If you are having problems or symptoms then I would suggest a consultation sooner or go to an ER. ...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

May be or watch: May be or watchful waiting. Trust your cardiologist. When your l.V.E.F goes down below 50 percent it is high time to do surgery. Get a good surgeon who will do valve repair not replacement! You'll also need left atrial appendage clipping, . ...Read more

My echocardiogram showed mild tricuspid regurg and trace pulmonic and mitral regurg. Is it common to have regurg in 3 valves? Should I be worried?

It is not unusual: To have trace regurgitation or even mild regurgitation in multiple valves. It may represent a collagen vascular disorder but is probably just normal for you. Discuss these concerns with your health care provider since she/he will have your entire medical history available and therefore be in a much better position to be able to advise you. ...Read more

Do both tricuspid valve stenosis and regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?

Possibly: Tricuspid stenosis is more likely to cause hypertrophy (thickening) of the right ventricle, whereas tricuspid regurgitation is more likely to cause dilatation, where the chamber increases in volume without much thickening. ...Read more
