What is mild mitral valve prolapse and associated moderate mitral insufficiency?

What is mild mitral valve prolapse and associated moderate mitral insufficiency?

Sometimes Related: Mitral valve prolapse is a common, typically mild condition in which one or both of the valve leaflets bulge backwards during valve closure. Mitral insufficiency is abnormal, backward leakage through the closed valve. If mild, negative effects are unusual. If severe, it can cause congestive failure, rhythm disturbances and other unwanted effects. Mvp, is one of many causes of insufficiency. ...Read more

Mitral Regurgitation (Definition)

A disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, which separates the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart, does not close properly, letting some blood flow ...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

My echo results- trivial mitral valve regurgitation, mild (1+-2+) pulmonic valve regurgitation, trivial (-1+) tricuspid valve regurgitation- normal?

My echo results- trivial mitral valve regurgitation, mild (1+-2+) pulmonic valve regurgitation, trivial (-1+) tricuspid valve regurgitation- normal?

Missing Data: Some important data are missing before i can say normal.What is pa pressure. What about lv function etc. If they r normal then only i can comment on it sorry! ...Read more

Please explain what it "mild valvular aortic stenosis with mild aortic regurgitation"?

Please explain what it "mild valvular aortic stenosis with mild aortic regurgitation"?

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

Ive been diagnosed with mild mitral valve prolpase and trace mitral regurgetation..will this disease progress?

Ive been diagnosed with mild mitral valve prolpase and trace mitral regurgetation..will this disease progress?

Occasionally: Most patients with mitral valve prolapse remain quite stable over the duration of their lives. Rarely, there may be progressive mitral insufficiency depending if the valve degenerates over time or if there is an infection on the valve. The optimal strategy is to have periodic echocardiograms done in the same laboratory to ensure consistency. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Can anterior mitral leaflet redundancy with trivial regurgitation cause ventricular tachycardia?

Can anterior mitral leaflet redundancy with trivial regurgitation cause ventricular tachycardia?

Usually low risk: Mitral valve redundancy, usually called prolapse, usually produces no symptoms or minor symptoms. If the valve leak is trivial, that's very good news and serious complications including ventricular tachycardia are not expected because the left ventricle is not under strain.. ...Read more

What is mild mitral stenosis?

What is mild mitral stenosis?

Narrowing: Mitral stenosis is a thickening of the mitral valve leaflets. This results in narrowing that restricts blood flow through the valve. Ms is rated as mild, moderate, or severe. Severe ms usually requires valve surgery. Mild does not cause symptoms but should be monitored periodically. ...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

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

Can mitral valve prolapse cause idiopathic edema?

Mitral prolapse: It is not likely to cause edema unless the mitral insufficiency is quite severe. Usual mitral prolapse is mostly noise and little associated problem. ...Read more
