Moderate mitral regurgitation (MJA=5.0 cm2); eccentric two jets; one directed anteromedially and the other direct posterolateral reaching mild left atrial cavity [MR volume=45ml; MR fraction=43%; EROA=0.35cm2]. moderate pulmonary hypertension. RVSP 36mm Hg - Rest and RVSP 42mmHg during exercise.
Normal - left ventricular internal dimensions, systolic function, EF60%
