Borderline PH on Echo - Next Steps?
Due to an abnormal EKG in a routine physical, my Dr. ordered an a transthoracic echocardiogram. The echo conclusions included "evidence of borderline pulmonary hypertension" with estimated right ventricular systolic pressure of 35-40 mmHg. Tricuspid valve peak veloocity (regurg rate?) was 2.67 m/sec; other findings include mild mitral valve regurg and trace pulmonic valve regurg. Left atria was 41 mm, LV mass was 257g. Both #s on left heart seem large since I'm not a large person - male, 5'7, 160, 12% body fat.

Should I be satisfied with just waiting and doing nothing since the results showed only borderline? If not, any tips to ensure that I get an appointment with appropriate specialists? I am thinking I may try to get an appt. with the doctor who read the echo and gave the borderline PH finding.

Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance!
