Hi there, thanks for taking my question. I recently had a 2nd echocardiogram done due to overall anxiety problems, palpitaions, and mild hbp readings in the doc's office. results were:
AORTIC DIAMETER: 3.2
LA DIAMETER: 2.6
AORTIC VALVE CUSPS SEPERATION: 21
LEFT VENTRICULAR BY M-MODE: 71%
The things that they wrote down that jumped out at me were:
The physican reviewing this said I have mild concentric LV hypertrophy. Cause for concern?
He said I also have trace to mild mitral regur, and mild to moderate tricuspid regur - cause for concern?
Also, minimally high right ventricular systolic pressure 34 mmHg. - again, cause for concern?
My last echo was done about 4 years ago, due to similar symptoms, panic attacks, fears of heart problems, etc.
Im not sure how much has changed, but according to the one 4 years ago, things havent changed that much really.
I am a little worried about the finding, although my doctor seems to not be worried at all. Any advice or concerns?
These are all very borderline abnormalities that are frequently seen. The mild left ventricular hypertrophy may be due to your blood pressure and this needs to be watched and aggressively treated. Other than BP monitoring and don't think there is a problem.
