I recently was told I had a heart murmur-possibly two; mitral valve and I think aortic valve.
My Echocardiogram results show:
"the aortic valve leaflets are mildly thickened; the mitral valve leaflets appear myxomatous; there is mild mitral regurgitation observed; there is normal left ventricular systolic function (ejection fraction is 60-65%); left atrial chamber size is normal; left ventricular chamber size is normal/normal function.
Tricuspid valave normal in structure and function; trace tricuspid regurgitation; no evidence of pulmonic regurgitation."
I am asymptomatic although having some PVCs. No shortness of breath; labs excellent; BP a little high (white coat, 159/60). I am 59 years old and never told I had a murmur until now.
Please share what this means and my treatment options.
