Mitral Valve Prolapse With Mild Regurgitation
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
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
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not necessarily: They are two separate entities and may coexist but generally are not causative of one another. ...Read more
Trace mitral and pulmonic regurgitation
Mild concentric LVH. Normal LV systolic function.
Mild tricuspid regurgitation with mild pulmonary hypertens?
My echo states atrial septal aneurysm, borderline mitral valve prolapse, trace mitral regurg, trace tricuspid regurg, trace pulmonic regurg. worried?
Minor abnormalities: Though they need to be followed to see if they worsen. Your cardiologist is your best resource ...Read more
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
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
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Mitral valve prolapse is only dangerous if it progresses to more severe mitral regurgitation. At least 10% of the population has some degree of mvp, and only a small percent progress. This should be followed with periodic cardiac echo. If severe mitral regurgitation does develop, mitral valve repair can be performed with very low risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
