Valve regurgitation

Posted By Jo Ann on October 30, 1998 at 14:54:13:







In 1985, I had my first echocardiograph, at a medical-school affiliated clinic, that showed mild mitral valve regurgitation and mild aortic valve regurgitation.  In 1996, I had a second echocardiograph as part of a stress echo.  The resting echo was considered normal, and no mention of regurgitation was made in the entire test report. This test was performed at a specialized heart institute.  Recently I had a third echocardiograph at a leading national medical clinic.  The result was mild mitral valve regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation.  Is it easy to confuse the aortic valve with tricuspid valve, or is it more likely that I have or have had regurgitation in all three valves: mitral, aortic, and tricupid ? I am currently age 51.
