I cannot tell you if you have LVH or not without the echo measurements but the mitral valve is touching the septum in diastole what is normal (when the heart is resting and mitral valve opens the let the ventricle fills with blood). There is a mild acceleration of the blood when crossing the aortic valve what ot related to the septum. Good luck.
As regards the mild acceleration of the blood when crossing the aortic valve is that what tou would call 'turbulent flow at the Left Ventricle Ouytflow Tract ? and maybe that is the 'soft systolic murmur' at the 'lower left sternal edge' the doctors mention in letters between one another. I've always had this soft murmur
As regards the l;eft ventricular measurements here is the M Mode from the echo with all the dimensions interposed Looks to me that the posterior wall is 0.9 (so under LVH ) and the septum is 1.3 (mild LVH) but the cardiuo reviewed the septum and thought it between 1.0 and 1.2 so 1.2 would be just on the edge... the beginning of LVH as I understand it
I'd tried to get someone to show me my echo and answer my questions but to no avail, Its not easy for us laypersons to work out these things and as for the color blood flow on the echo clips I really have no idea how to work out what means what or even easily see what direction blood is going, and how much backflow is to be expected. The echo report talks of regurtition in trace levels, I think 0 to 1 level
