Is this a normal echo? How does the % of aortic regurgitation appear on the echo
What does a blue/red bar on the side of an echo image measure? Mine was .74 in some and .88 in others.Study conclusions:Summary-Overall left ventricular systolic function was normal. Left ventricular ejection fraction was estimated to be 61 %. (It indicates 66% on the report below why was this changed?)There were no left ventricular regional wall motion abnormalities. There was mild aortic valvular regurgitation. There was trivial to mild mitral valvular regurgitation. Left atrial size was at the upper limits of normal.I am 6feet 1.5 Inches and 207 LB-Muscular.
Impressions: 1. Top normal left atrial size. 2. Well preserved left ventricular systolic contractile performance in the range of 61% without evident regional wall motion abnormalities nor intracavitary thrombi. . 3. Structurally unremarkable mitral, aortic and tricuspid valve leaflets. Specifically there is no prolapse and the aortic valve is probably trileaflet. 4. No pericardial effusion. 5. trivial to mild mitral insufficiency. 6. Mild aortic incompetence Measurement tables:M-mode measurment

Looks pretty darn good (from a lay person's perspective).  Your heart size and function are normal for your height and weight.  The 66% vs 61% was probably a visual vs calculated estimate of your ejection fraction - it's basically the same number and means nothing.  Both 61 and 66% would be considered absolutely excellent.

Sounds like you have a trace of mitral regurgitation, which usually means nothing at all.  I'm not sure about aortic regurgitation.

That's all I know :)

I'm not a doctor, but I have looked at my share of echo reports. :) This one looks really good, to me.  I don't see anything on the report that looks concerning.  Your doctor MAY want to get a repeat echo at some point, but he/she will let you know. Some (trivial, pysiologic, mild) regurgitation is pretty  common, so your doctor will consider your age, overall health, etc. and decide whether a follow up is even necessary. He/she may also suggest preventive antibiotics prior to dental procedures, etc. Just check with your doctor and follow his/her advice.
