Hi! I have a mild mitral regurgitation for more than 2years now.I know what it means but
Just recently, i had my third 2D echo taken and here is what it says:

INTERPRETATION
The left ventricular cavity is normal in size with hypertrophy of its walls but with good wall motion and contractility
The right ventricle is normal in size with adequate wall motion and contractility
The left atrium and right atrium are normal in size
The mitral valve, tricuspid valve, aortic valve and pulmonic valve are normal with no restriction of motion
The aortic root and main pulmonary artery are normal

COLOR DOPPLER
Mitral regurgitation, mild
Reverse E/A diastolic flow ratio across the mitral valve
Normal pulmonary artery pressure by pulmonary accleration time

CONCLUSION
Concentric left ventricular hypertrophy with good systolic function but with left
ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality
Mild mitral regurgitation


I hope you can help me. Is pulmonary acceleration time the same with pulmonary hypertension?
Is the conclusion corelated with each other or is it different from what I used to have, mitral regurgitation?
I hope you can explain further the conclusion in terminologies much easier to understand.

Thank you and hoping for your soonest answer.
