In brief: RVSP Moderate PHTN

Symptoms are important in this case.
Things that could elevate the pressure in your right ventricle could be. - Mitral Regurgitation (eleveating your PCWP or Capillary wedge pressure) - Diastolic/Systolic Dysfunction - Pulmonary Valve Stenosis - Pulmonary emboli If you are having symptoms. Echocardiogram would be useful and depending of situation possible
