2D ECHO
LV Dias Diam                3.9cm
LV Syst                          2.6cm
IVS Dia Thickness         1.2cm
LVPW Dia "                    1.3cm
LA Sys Dia Thick            4. cm

DOPPLER
LVOT                              3mgHg
LVOT Diameter               2.2 cm
LVOT Area                      3.8cm?
Mitral E Point Velocity    43.3 cm/s
Mitral A    "        "             67.5 cm/s
Mitral E to A Ratio           0.64
MV Deceleration time      151 ms

I was told no MV regurgitation in this ECHO,..10 years ago I had mild aortic regurgitation.  I had both mild tricuspid regurgitation both now and then also LV hypertrophy both times.   Old ECHO showed LVEF 51% but now I am told EF is 55-65%.  I am confused. How does this happen?

I can't comment on everything in your echo but your LV mass is right on the border of being hypertrophic. Most doctors would call that normal. Also ejection fraction can fluctuate depending on your fitness level as well as how fast your heart is beating.

shouldn't mitral A velocity be lower than Mitral E velocity?  They seem to be reversed from what I have read....this is abnormal?!
