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
My mother in law suffering from severe global hupokinesia of LV, Severe LV systolic dysfunction, Moderate mitral regurgitation, Mild Aortic reg,sv PAH?
Heart Failure: Unfortunately it appears that your mother in law is suffering from advanced congestive heart failure and needs aggressive medical treatment and follow up beyond the scope of this forum. A dedicated heart failure program in your area at an academic hospital is a good place to start. Good luck!! ...Read more
What treatment is needed for interatrial septum aneurysmal with pfo, severe tricuspid reguritation, elevated rvsp?
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

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
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
Two ways: A large vsd with increased pulmonary blood flow may cause a diastolic flow rumble caused by a large amount of flow coming back from the lungs across the mitral valve into the left ventricle. Perimembranous and supracristal vsds can cause aortic valve deformation, and subsequent development of a diastolic murmur of aortic valve insufficiency. ...Read more
What should I do? My echocardiagram shows mild mitral regurgitation, mild diastolic dysfunction, mild tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension
No: This is a temporizing measure for those too sick to undergo definitive treatment. In patients who can tolerate definitive therapy, it is unwise. It would be foolish to choose it. While some may be seduced by its less invasive nature, it is no match for the results archived by surgical treatment. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Echo result shows three mild leaking valves" mitral, tricuspid,and pulmonary"plus mild/moderate pulmonary HTN 42,57
Any problem will occur in future?
Hard to know...: More follow-up and directed testing may be necessary, especially for the pulmonary hypertension, in order to offer you an accurate prognosis. What's the cause? And how rapidly are the valve architecture and pulmonary pressures changing? These questions need to be answered to offer you a prognosis. Coordinate with Cardiologist. ...Read more
