Symptoms: You should be seeing a cardiologist for evaluation and management. ...Read more
Only in a Very Few: Generally, the answer to this is a very solid "no." this is a rare complication of people with another condition (on top of their afib) called wolff-parkinson-white syndrome (or wpw). In certain patients having both conditions, the top chamber is too-well connected to the bottom and can trigger ventricular fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Trace pulmonic valvular regurgitation what does these mean? Mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy?
Trace PI is benign: However mild LVH is thickening of heart muscle frequently associated with hypertension. ...Read more
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
Mild left ventricular systolic dysfunctionLeft ventricular ejection fraction 40 % with global left ventricular hypokinesis,Myxomatousmorphology mv?
Heart: With this diagnosis you need to be under the supervision of a cardiologist and follow his advice. ...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
Not usually: Not typically; however, if you also have an accessory pathway (wolff-parkinson-white syndrome), this is a unique situation where af is known to cause very rapid ventricular activation during af, which can lead to vf. Rapid ventricular response may cause cardiac weakening over time, which in turn may increase the risk of vf. ...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
Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?
Left heart large: The main pumping chamber of the heart ( l ventricle) is evenly increased in size so that the pumping cavity is a bit smaller. The priming pump ( l atrium) is mildly enlarged. This is very likely due to uncontrolled high BP over many years. Because it is mild i would not expect any symptoms or functional difficulty at all. Treatment is to control bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a cardiac mri. Finding: mild lv cavity dilation, normal lv systolic function; lvef 62%.Trivial pericardial & pleural effusion?
Sounds pretty normal: Ef is normal, tiny effusions are nothing to worry about. Was valvular function normal - ie no stenosis or regurgitation? Also, how much dilation? Was a volume given? Would followup with a cardiologist and make sure you optimize your therapy for high blood pressure among other conditions. The lv dilation and pericardial effusions could be followed with echocardiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
