I have just read results of an echo that mention my aortic valve is sclerotic with a mild-mod degree of regurgutation. My LA, and LV are normal in size and tricuspid valve normal too. Trace calcified mitral valve. Is this anythintg to worry about? I have had echos every 5 years until now because of regurgitation and a strong murmer. Before the results have all showed trivial, then mild regurgitation.
I am 61 and taking calcium and fosamax for osteoporosis so wonder if that is producing too much clacium?? Or am I just imagining this?
