What Is Tricusted Leakage
One of 4 heart valve: The mitral valve is one of the 4 heart valves found in the heart. These valves keep blood moving one direction rather than back and forth as the heart contracts. The mitral valve is so named as it looks like the pope's hat (a mitre). The mitral valve separates the left atrium and the left ventricle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Discharge can be a noun or a verb; it has multiple meanings in physics, chemistry, military, and legal usage. The most common medical meaning is a substance that is being excreted. Examples: pus is the discharge from a pimple; a vaginal discharge can mean infection; an ear discharge can mean an infection of the outer ear tract; a nasal discharge ...Read more
Mitral prolapse is: A condition where the two leaflets of the mitral valve tend to be elongated and billow upward into the left atrium when the heart contracts. The billowing can go on to true prolapse of one or both leaflets, which is when the leaflets allow the blood to leak backward into the atrium. This is mitral regurgitation. Prolapse does not always leak and not all leaky valve started with prolapse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Valve: 'Leaking' heart valves are valves with don't close properly. There are various causes of this problem. It can be inherited or acquired. Acquired types include infections and heart damage from inflammatory and ischemic and toxic processes. Structural abnormalities of the muscle or degeneration of valve tissue can also cause the problem. There are too many potential causes to list all here. ...Read more
A leaky & weak valve: The heart is a machine with plumbing. There are four holding tanks. Two upper and two lower. There are 4 valves in the heart that regulate the outflow. On the right side of the heart the blood is pumped to the lungs to get oxygen. The valve that is between the upper and lower is called the tricuspid valve. When it is damaged blood pushed from the top to the bottom leaks back into the top. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very small leak: The mitral valve prevents blood from flowing backwards out of the main pumping chamber of the heart (left ventricle). When a valve leaks we call this regugitation or insufficiency. One method of describing a leak is to classify it as trivial or trace, mild, moderate, or severe. A trace leak should not affect you heart in any way. A lot of people of this and never need anything done for it. ...Read more
Different things: I think of mitral valve prolapse as a description of how the valve closes (the leaflets bow into the atrium). Regurgitation is actual leaking of blood back in the atrium. You can have prolapse without regurgitation. And not everyone with regurgitation has prolapse. There is a group of patients that develop regurge from prolapse, but not everyone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MR: The mitral valve has 2 leaflets which separates the left ventricle from the left atrium. Blood passes across the mv from the la to the lv when the heart is filling. When the ventricle contracts, the mv is closed and no blood goes backward into the la unless regurgitation is present. Then the blood leaks backward, overfilling the la and raising the pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Often benign: In general, this condition is benign. It may lead to palpitations, shortness of breath, migraine, anxiety. Mitral valve replacement may be needed if there is severe mitral regurgitation or a leaky mitral valve - rare cases for mitral valve prolapse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mitral insuffiency: Mitral insufficiency is leakage of the mitral valve. This valve between the left atrium and left ventricle assures that when the ventricle (the main pumping chamber) contracts, all the blood moves forward through the aortic valve into the aorta. When leaking, blood flows backwards. This can be a little or a lot, making the heart less efficient and causing symptoms such as shortness of breath... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not a replacement: Mitral valve repair refers to an operation to correct dysfunction of the mitral valve using tissues of the valve itself rather than replacing the valve with an artificial valve. Often a prosthetic ring is sutured around the valve to support it. Repair is usually done for a leaking valve - mitral regurgitation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi doctors, can you tell me what is mild tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonary valve insufficiency, atrial septrum is aneurysmal?
Echo findings: Tricuspid and pulmonary valve regurgitation means that these valve leak blood when they close. Trace or mild regurgitation of these valves can be a normal finding. Atrial septum aneurysm means that the wall between the two upper chambers of the heart, i.e. The atria, is larger than normal or redundant, with moving or bulging towards either side. ...Read more
First PDA: Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a heart problem that affects some babies soon after birth. In PDA, abnormal blood flow occurs the aorta and the pulmonary artery. Before birth, these arteries are connected by a blood vessel called the ductus arterioles, a vital part of fetal blood circulation.After birth, the ductus arteriosus closes. Sometimes the ductus arteriosus remains open, allowing oxygen-rich blood from the aorta to mix with oxygen-poor blood from the pulmonary artery. This can strain the heart and increase blood pressure in the lung arteries. ...Read more
Occurs when mitral : Valve slips into atrium (prolapsed) and causes regurgitation. There may be no symptoms or shortness of breath, atrial enlargement, pulmonary hypertension or arrhythmia. Intervention can be: nothing, medication or surgery. Diagnosed by echocardiogram. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
