Hi,
I had an echocardiogram and this is the summary of the report. If somebody can please throw some light on what it means, I would really appreciate. Thank you very much.

Intact systolic heart function with mitral regurgitation, mitral valve prolapse, aortic valve thickening, tricuspid valve prolapse, and tricuspid regurgitation with mild increase in estimated pulmonary pressure.

  • Hi, I had an echocardiogram and this is the summary of the report. If somebody can please throw some light on what it means, I would really appreciate. Thank you very much. Intact systolic heart function with mitral regurgitation, mitral valve prolapse, aortic valve thickening, tricuspid valve prolapse, and tricuspid regurgitation with mild increase in estimated pulmonary pressure. I have chest pain, headache, and anxiety all the time. Could they be happening because of my heart condition?

  • I also had an echocardiogram done and mine ended up coming back with a mild tricuspid regurgitation. It means that you have blood flowing backwards in the wrong direction into your right valve of the heart. I read up on it and that's how I found out. It makes your blood pressure high and a rapid heart rate. My doctor told me it's nothing to worry about. I am also 19 weeks 2 days pregnant. Here is the website where I read up on the information. http://www.merck.com/mmhe/sec03/ch028/ch028g.html. That is for the mild tricuspid regurgitation but I am sure that you will be able to find everything else on there as well. I hope this helped!

I was also told that it was not dangerous. Good to know that. Best wishes with your pregnancy :)
