Are mitral regurgitation and tricuspid regurgitation dangerous to have?

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

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

What is mitral valve regurgitation?

What is mitral valve regurgitation?

Leaky: Your heart valves are supposed to be one way doors. Blood is supposed to be pushed out in one direction with the valve (door) closing behind. If the door doesn't close completely and or some blood leaks backward it is called regurgitation. A little bit is not a problem, a large amount can make the heart need to work too hard. ...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?

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 "trivial mitral valve regurgitation"?

What is "trivial mitral valve regurgitation"?

Very small leak: The mitral valve prevents blood from flowing backwards out of the main pumping chamber of the heart (left ventricle). When a valve leaks we call this regugitation or insufficiency. One method of describing a leak is to classify it as trivial, mild, moderate, or severe. A trivial leak should not affect you heart in any way. A lot of people of this and never need anything done for it. ...Read more

How are aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation murmur different?

Mitral regurgitation: Mr murmur is an early systolic, holosystolic, or also referred to as blowing systolic murmur best heard over the apex radiating to the left axilla. Aortic stenosis is an ejection systolic murmur best heard over the right upper stern all border, radiating to the neck, and there may be an ejection systolic click heard over same area and apex. ...Read more

Prognosis: aortic stenosis and mitral valve prolapse. Any idea?

Prognosis: aortic stenosis and mitral valve prolapse. Any idea?

2 questions: Aortic stenosis w/o symptoms has good prognosis. Symptomatic as has 5, 3, and 2 yr life expectancy depending on symptoms. Chest pain (5), passing out (3) and heart failure (2) yrs. This improves if the valve is replaced. Mitral valve prolapse does not significantly affect your prognosis by itself. Some though can worsen and begin to leak. This can also lead to heart failure. ...Read more

Ihss and bicuspid aortic valve?

HCM: Not sure what you're asking. Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy in series with a bicuspid aortic valve has a potential for real trouble if the bicuspid becomes stenotic. If the bicuspid valve isn't stenotic, then the physiology is dictated by the ihss primarily. ...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
