Echocardiogram with contrast

This is the complete echo report.  Can you tell me what #4, #6, #10 & #15 mean?  Does this person have a mitral valve prolapse?  

"The left atrium is normal size. The right atrium is normal in size.
Probable PFO. After contrast injection, 1 bubble was seen in the left atrium
immediately after the injection. No other bubbles were in seen in the left atrium, particularly no late bubbles

1. Normal systemic venous return.
2. Normal pulmonary venous return.
3. No tricuspid regurgitation.
4. The mitral valve leaflets appear redundant. There appears to be an accessory
chordal attachment to the posterior leaflet. In the apical view, there appears to
be chordal SAM.
5. No mitral regurgitation.
6. The aortic valve is trileaflet.
7. No aortic stenosis.
8. No aortic regurgitation.
9. Pulmonic valve is normal in appearance.
10. Trace pulmonary regurgitation.
11. Normal sized right ventricle.
12. The right ventricular function appears qualitatively normal.
13. Normal sized left ventricle.
14. Normal LV systolic function.
15. Left aortic arch.
16. No evidence of coarctation of the aorta.
17. Bifurcation of the innominate artery not seen.
18. The descending aortic Doppler pattern is nonobstructive.
19. The main, right and left pulmonary arteries appear all normal."

I'm not a health professional, but have had a lot of echos.  When you see the words normal or trivial or mild, that is always great news.  I think questions #'s 4, 6 and 15 are descriptive, and #10 explains only normal leakage (no heart is perfect!)  I'd think this an excellent report, but only your doctor can explain it with any accuracy.
