Mitral Valve And Tricuspid Valve Prolapse
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?
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
I have had mvp (1st degree) for 10 years. Now I am diagnosed with tricuspid valve prolapse as well (1st degree). Is it a complication of mvp?
My cardiologist said that have mitral valve and tricuspid valve leakage but they are insignificant. Is it safe for me to exercise?
Echocardiogram results. Mildly thick mitral valve. Tricuspid valve structurally normal but, shows trace of regurgitation.?
Echocardiogram results mitral valve: mild insufficiency and tricuspid valve: very mild insufficiency. Should I be referred to cardiologist?
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?
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
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
My echo states atrial septal aneurysm, borderline mitral valve prolapse, trace mitral regurg, trace tricuspid regurg, trace pulmonic regurg. Worried?
Though they need to be followed to see if they worsen.
Your cardiologist is your best resource ...Read more
Prolapse vs leak: Mvp is a congenital disorder of the mitral valve where the collagen fibers that make up the valve are disorganized. It may or may not be associated with leakiness of the valve, which is simply what it sounds like - leaking blood backwards through the valve. People with mvp are more likely to develop leaky valves, but it's not a guarantee. An echocardiogram can tell you how leaky it is. ...Read more
Birth defect: It's abnormal tissue composing the mitral valve from birth. Myxomatous tissue is thickened, exuberant, and stretches - thus doesn't provide proper support for the mitral valve which then "bows backward" under the force of cardiac contraction and "prolapses" (sticks its neck out) into the left atrium during systole (where it doesn't belong). It can lead to mitral regurgitation (leaking). ...Read more
Mitral valve prolaps:
I will assume you did not mean effective but harmful :-)
when the valve leaflets "prolapse" they bend back and no longer seal, resulting in significant leakage of the valve. This increases the amount of work the heart has to perform, resulting in decrease in exercise capacity and more shortness of breath. Of course, the leakage can be a little with few symptoms or severe... ...Read more
Often little to none: Mitral valve prolapse is a disorder of the mitral valve which affects the way it closes. Most of the time this results in little no leak. As long as there is little to no leak most patients will have no symptoms. Most patients with mitral valve prolapse probably don't even know about it. If there are symptoms usually they are related to an increase in the leakage of the valve. ...Read more
Depends: Most of the time, it is a minor problem. It can result in significant leakage of the valve, chest pain, palpitations, valve infection, and heart rhythm disturbances. So it really depends on the severity of the problem. Fortunately, most cases are relatively benign. We used to routinely give antibiotics prior to dental and other procedures, but that is no longer recommended. ...Read more
Mitral valve prolaps: Mitral valve has anterior (a) and posteriotr leaflets (p). Prolapse has 4 stages. Stage I is mild, stage 2 is moderate, stage 3 is moderate to severe and stage 4 is severe degree. Anterior leaf let has three sections labeled as a1, a2, a3. Stage ii a2 means: a2 section shows moderate degree of prolapse. ...Read more
