Trace Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation
Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?
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
Yes: Trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation by itself is nothing to worry about. There many people who live normal lives with this. This usually diagnosed with an echo. The echo gives a lot more additional information so make sure you have conversation with your doctor to make sure you you understand. ...Read more
My echo reads trace of mitral&tricuspid valve regurgitation is that normal? Have had chronic fatigue for months - have scleroderma and gastroparesis
It doesn't: Completely desperate although pulmonary HTN can make tricuspid regurgitation worse. ...Read more
I have subpulmonic vsd with left to right shunt with gradient - 86mmhg. Will I need surgery? Also I have a trivial tricuspid valve regurgitation.
VSD: It appears that you have a significant congenital heart defect which needs to be corrected. However your cardiologist is the best person to advise you. ...Read more
My cardiologist said that I have mild mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitation but they are not harmful. But now I have ectopics when laying down. Why?
These findings are: Most likely unrelated as all of us experience occasional extra heart beats. You should go back to your cardiologist and tell him/her about your new symptoms. A long term monitor and perhaps a short course of drug therapy might be warranted. Discuss this with your health care professional. ...Read more
2yr has mild to moderate mitral and tricuspid valve regurgitation. And has increased urinate, cough at night & low body temp. Could flow be increasing?
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
Does mild tricuspid valve regurgitation make it difficult for an athlete to breathe while playing competitive sports. The grasp for air and turn pale?
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
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?
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. 6-Mode
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
Heart ultra sound was all normal but it showed I had trace tricuspid & mitral valve regurgitation. Is this norm? Am I more susceptible 2 myocarditis?
Focal scleritis, global motility disorder, mitral valve regurgitation & stenosis, tricuspid valve regurgitation, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, venous insufficiency, Raynaud, hypothyroidism, epilepsy, small/large fiber neuropathy. Related somehow?
Echocardiogram results. Mildly thick mitral valve. Tricuspid valve structurally normal but, shows trace of regurgitation.?
Is Tricuspid Valve Gradient (TVG) of 11 mmHg quite severe? What normal range for TVG? My echo said I had Tricuspid Regurgitation.
TI=Tricuspid Insuffi: A normal TVG is 1 way; did u have new Sx or was this a f/u scan? ...Read more
Can both tricuspid valve stenosis and tricuspid regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?
Sort of: The right atrium tends to enlarge somewhat with both conditions; it is more so with tricuspid stenosis. Technically though it is an enlargement, not a hypertrophy (which means muscular thickening). Ra enlargement with tr would imply either severe tr or very elevated pulmonary resistance pressures. ...Read more
Been active my whole life, eat a healthy diet. Just found that I have a tricuspid valve, 42 mm asc aorta &trace regur in 4 vlvs. Low bld pres/no prob
The heart is like the eyes- it's rare to have a perfect one. If you do an echo on most of us, you'd find evidence of trace regurgitation in some or all of the valves.
As long as the heart is working well and it's trace regurgitation it's no problem. The aorta diamater sounds normal but depends how they measured it.
The doctor that ordered the test should be contacting you with the results too. ...Read more
Yes: Depending on the situation, tricuspid valve problems can be treated with mechanical valves, tissue valves, valve repair, or sometimes medications. Sometime tricuspid valve problems can get better by treating other problems with the heart (like left-sided valve issues). Check with a doctor for details. ...Read more
Hello, how is surgically repaired tricuspid valve? How does the surgery? What is postooperative course? After the surgery, I will be intubated?
Tv repair: Is unusual & normally paired with another procedure. Why are you getting this done? Yes you will be intubated. ...Read more
The valve between. .: The three flaps of tissue on the right side of the heart that prevent blood from going backwards from the right ventricle to the right atrium with every heart beat. ...Read more
Congenital anomaly: Ebstein anomaly of the tricuspid valve is a congenital heart disease characterized by "downward" displacement of the tricuspid valve towards the apex of the right ventricle. Often there is an associated atrial septal defect. There are frequent arrhythmias, including wolf-parkinson-white syndrome. There is wide variation in the severity. ...Read more
Yes, it is possible. It can eventually cause right heart failure and even sudden cardiac death. It is very important to be followed by a cardiologist that specializes in adult congenital defects on a regular basis. It is highly variable though. Some patients have a normal life span without many if any symptoms.

See below: The tricuspid valve separates the upper and lower chambers of the right side of the heart. When the right ventricle enlarges for whatever reason, the tricuspid valve no longer seals when it closes, leading to regurgitation. Repairing the valve requires reducing the size of the valve, as well as repairing the leaflets. If that doesn't work, then a valve replacement would be in order. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my tricuspid valve is slightly thicker than normal but I was born with it?
Tricuspid valve: If you are symptom free, I would not be concerned. For peace of mind you can be checked by a cardiologist periodically ...Read more
My tricuspid valve is slightly thicker than normal, but I was born with it. What are the health consequences of this, if any?
Tricuspid valve: Since you are 49 years old it obviously hasn't caused you any major problem ...Read more
Had a test ran and it shows that I have a mild mitral and tricuspid valve issue, But dr said not to worry about it for 20 to 30 years should I be worry?
Valves: Mild mitral and tricuspid insufficiency are very common and often stay stable throughout life. If your doctor is comfortable with your status and encouraging you not to worry, I'd advise taking that advice. ...Read more
