Echo report

Echo Report & concerns : mitral valve: mildly thickened with mild annular calcification
Aorotic valve: normal structure with mild aoritc root calcification
Summary:Normal LV systolic function, LVEF>60%
No functionally significant valvular abnormalities.
Measurements all normal
I'm a 51 yr. female, normal weight, athletic, good cholestral. I was told I had a normal echo, but when I recieved it in the mail, I am very concerned. Can you please explain what this means & if I can do anything to reverse this? Is this really normal? My echo & nuclear stress test 2 yrs. ago was normal. Thanks!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Mild thickening or calcification of the valves is a normal occurrence. There is no evidence of stenosis or regurgitation of the valves and the ejection fraction is also good. So, you have no reason to worry.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
