Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation
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
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 have subpulmonic vsd with left to right shunt with gradient - 86mmhg. Will i need surgery? Also I have a trivial tricuspid valve regurgitation.
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?
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?
My echo reads trace of mitral&tricuspid valve regurgitation is that normal? Have had chronic fatigue for months - have scleroderma and gastroparesis
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
