Mitral Regurgitation Murmur
Mitral regurgitation or mitral insufficiency or mitral incompetence is a disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple: The pitch is different. Also, each is better heard in a different location in the chest, and the duration of the murmur during the cardiac cycle are different. ...Read more
Mitral regurgitation: Our echocardiogram studies are so sensitive that they frequently show tiny amounts of insignificant valve leak, with trace mitral regurgitation being the commonest of these. It is not a concern. To have a murmur you have to have enough turbulent blood flow to make an audible noise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How sensitive is doppler echo for seeing mitral regurgitation? Reliable to rule it out if you have a murmur?
Had a murmur ,My echo says I have trace to mild mitral regurgitation in one valve. normal weight, lipids, bp, glu. Reason to f/u with cardiology?
Not really: Trace to mild regurgitation on echocardiogram is likely not the cause of your auscultated "murmur" as that would be very hard to hear. I suspect your doctor thought there was a murmur, and it turns out not to be clinically significant. If you are truly asymptomatic: no SOB, no chest pain, etc., then no need for cardio based on this finding alone. As for preventative care, ensure lipids really norm ...Read more
Pulmonary HTN: You're correct. Mitral stenosis produces a diastolic rumble or murmur. However, as mitral stenosis worsens patients develop pulmonary hypertension. This in turn will increase the pressure in the right ventricle which could induce a normal tricuspid valve to leak. This murmur would be systolic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
