Mitral Valve Regurgitation Cause Anemia
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
Maybe...: Mild mvr usually causes no issues and does not require antibiotics before procedures such as dental work. More severe disease can causes shortness of breath and fatigue with exercise and my need antibiotics before procedures.
No: No, it must be much worse to do that.See 1 more doctor answer
Mitral regurgitation: In general no, but consult your doctor if you are having symptoms.
Can mitral valve regurgitation cause leg swelling? Read in reports that I have mitral valve regurgitation but doc never told me-- strange.
Mitral regurgitation: This is a common incidental finding on echocardiography, if severe and associated with congestive failure edema can develop-the person is then very sick with shotness of breath among other symptoms.
Mitral regurgitation: No, a trace of mitral regurgitation is normal. If such a person is short of breath, there are usually other causes. Significant heart or lung problems, like copd, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation are major causes, but allergies, asthma, smoking, and anxiety are some of the common causes. If the amount of shortness of breath is clearly more than others your age, see a doctor.
When you have a mitral valve prolapse what causes mitral valve regurgitation? How can you prevent from it happening
You can't prevent: Mitral valve prolapse describes the way the leaflets of the mitral valve close. With mvp the stresses in the mv are altered making it susceptible to injury. This is what leads to regurge. There's nothing you can do to change the stresses in the mv. However, most people do not progress to significant regurge. Also, the majority of mitral regurge due to prolapse can be repaired minimally invasively.See 2 more doctor answers
PH Treatment: Treatment of pulmonary hypertension (ph) depends on the cause. Group 1 pulmonary arterial hypertension (pah) is treated with medication designed to widen the pulmonary arteries thereby lowering resistance to blood flow and reducing the need for the right ventricle to generate high pressures i.e. Ph. Mitral valve disease may be treated entirely differently depending on the severity.See 1 more doctor answer
I had echo 3 weeks ago...it showed moderate mitral regurgitation, mild tricuspid regurgitation, and mildly enlarged laft atrial...my RSVP was calculated 37....mild pulmonary hypertension. My question is would the mitral valve regurgitation be the cause of
Mitral regurgitation: It could be the cause of mild pulmonary hypertension
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 or trace, mild, moderate, or severe. A trace leak should not affect you heart in any way. A lot of people of this and never need anything done for it.
Depends on symptoms: Symptoms generally dictate need for corrective surgery (repair vs replacement) in mr cases. Consult with a cardiologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: They are two separate entities and may coexist but generally are not causative of one another.
Which percentage of mitral valve regurgitation patients require valve repair or replacement surgery?
Depends: It depends on the severity of the mr patients have and what their ages are. If you take the general usa population, all adults over age 21, some degree of mr is present in >80% (most of it trivial or very mild). Among that unselected group.
Palpitations off and on with tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation. Is there anything I can do to alleviate palpitations?
Depends: Mitral regurgitation is when it leaks blood backwards into the atrium. The seriousness of this is depends on the amount of leakage, the size of the heart, how well the heart squeezes and other factors. Many people live entirely normal lives with a small amount of leak. Surgery is indicated for severe cases (usually a repair) because in those cases it can improve life expectancy and quality of life.See 1 more doctor answer
