Moderate To Severe Mitral Valve Regurgitation
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
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 had an echocardiogram show severe mitral regurgitation, moderate /severe tricuspid regurgitation &mild to moder pulmonic regurge. Is surgery option?
Mitral regurgitation: You should have this discussion with a cardiologist who can evaluate you and your status and review your data. Surgery is an option for many patients with severe mitral regurgitation but more is involved in the evaluation than what you have above, any recommendation from here has to be to see a cardiologist personally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What should I do? My echocardiagram shows mild mitral regurgitation, mild diastolic dysfunction, mild tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension
Not necessarily: They are two separate entities and may coexist but generally are not causative of one another. ...Read more
Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...Read more

Summary of my resent echogram;
1-Low normal left ventricular function. Ejection fraction is est.52%
2-Mild left atrial enlargement.
3-Mild to moderate aortic valve regurgition.
4-Moderate aortic valve stenosis.
5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation.
Need cardiologist!: There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Leaking valve: The tricuspid valve lies between the right atrium and right ventricle. When this valve leaks some of the blood flow leaks back into the right atrium. It can be caused by high blood pressure in the lungs, failure of right ventricle or mechanical issues of the valve. A moderate regurge is usually treated medically with diuretics. Tricuspid repair is usually combined with other heart surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mild tricuspid regurgitation with mild pulmonary hypertens?
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
Asthma and mild mitral and pulmonic regurgitation, are the same?Or the mild mitral and pulmonic regurgitation manifest, bec of regular asthma attack
Not quite: The cardiac problems that you describe are usually trivial findings on an echocardiogram. But, academically, pulmonic regurgitation (usually accompanied by tricuspid) may be caused by uncontrolled asthma, and mitral regurgitation may worsen asthma. Talk to your doctor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Echocardiogram results mitral valve: mild insufficiency and tricuspid valve: very mild insufficiency. Should i be referred to cardiologist?
No: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
