Hello and hope you are doing well.

The report shows severe Mitral valve stenosis. Therapy will be with balloon valvuloplasty or open heart surgery. The ejection fraction is 60%. The ejection fraction is a useful measure of left ventricular performance. The normal range is 63-77% for males and 55-75% for females. It reflects the pumping capacity of the heart. So, don't worry and discuss the options with your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
