How to read the echo diagnosis

ECG RHYTHM, SINUS RHYTHM

STUDY QUALITY , THIS WAS A TECHNICALLY ADEQUATE STUDY,THE AORTIC ROOT IS NORMAL IN SIZE.

LEFT VENTRICLE, THE LEFT VENTRICULAR SIZE IS NORMAL.THERE IS A MILD CONCENTRIC LEFT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY, OVERALL LEFT VENTRICULAR SYSTOILC FUNCTION IS NORMAL WITH,AN EF BETWEEN 60-65 PERCENT GRADE I DIASTOLIC DYSFUNCTION.

LEFT ATRIUM, THE LEFT ATRIUM IS MILDLY DILATED.

RIGHT VENTRICLE, THE RIGHT VENTRICLE IS MILDLY ENLARGED. THE RIGHT VENTRICULAR SYSTOLIC FUNCTION IS NORMAL.

RIGHT ATRUM, THE RIGHT ATRIAL SIZE IS NORMAL.
.

AORTIC VALVE, THE AORTIC VALVE IS TRILEAFIET AND APPEARS STRUCTURALLY NORMAL.THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF AROTIC REGURGITATION.

MITRAL VALVE, THE MITRAL VALVE IS NORMAL. THERE IS A TRACE OF MITRAL REGURGITATION.

TRICUSPID VALVE, THE TRICUSPID VALVE APPEARS STRUCTURALLY NORMAL, NO REGURGITATION NOTED.

PULMONIC VALVE, PULMONIC VALVE APPEARS STRUTURALLY. THERE IS NO PULMONIC REGURGITATION PRESENT.

PERICARDIUM, THERE IS NO PERICARDIAL EFFUSION.

NO MASS OR THORMBUS VISUALIZED, THERE IS NO MASS OR THROMBUS IDENTIFIED.

                                    CONCLUSIONS

THE LEFT ATRIUM IS MILDLY DILATED.

THE RIGHT VENTRICULAR IS MILDLY ENLARGED.

THE RIGHT VENTRICULAR SYSTOLIC FUCTION IS NORMAL.

THE RIGHT ATRIA IS NORMAL.

THE AORTIC  VALVE IS TRILEAFIET AND APPEARS STRUCTURALLY NORMAL.

THE MITRAL  VALVE IS NORMAL.

THERE IS  TRACE MITRAL REGURGITATION.

THE TRICUSPID VALVE APPEARS STRUCTURALLY NORMAL.

NO  REGURGITATION NOTED.

PULMONIC VALVE APPEARS STRUCTURALLY NORMAL.

THERE IS NO PULMONIC REGURGITION PRESENT.

IS THIS OK OR YOU HAVE A HEART CATH.

Hi there,

You have a very detailed report here, but it all seems to be in order.  Good EF.  No valvular abnormalities - great news.  No bloodclots or masses - great news.  You do have slight enlargements in the chambers of your heart, but structurally normal and the words "slight" and "trace" is borderline-normal and completely normal for some people.

High bloodpressure can put pressure on the heart and that can make it enlarge slightly.  It also happens a bit with aging, even though 54 is not at all old :)

Make sure that you keep your bloodpressure normal (120/80) or if you take BP meds, measure your BP regularly and eat a heart-healthy diet.  If you smoke, STOP.  You can do moderate exercise to help your heart function/muscle to improve even more.

Hope the info helped :)  All the best,

Do you have high bloodpressure?  that is definitely your worse enemy at the moment.  Please have that checked out and let me know :)

Hi
I have the following result and wonder if you could help me understand it please?
Normal LV internal size ,wall thickness and systolic function.
Grade 1 diastolic dysfunction
Normal RV size with borderline normal longitudinal systolic function
Normal LA and RA size
Aortic valve trileaflet, opening well no As /AR
Anterior mitral valve with minimal thickening but otherwise very mobile and no restricted.
Trisuspid valves are pliable with insufficient TR
Pulmonic valve grossly normal with no PR
Intact inerairal septum
Free forward flow across the descending aorte

sorry it is a very poor copy. I maybe should add I have been diagnosed in the past with Whitecoat hypertension, so assume my bp was high at the time of the echo.
Any help welcomed warmly...I have not a clue what this means.
Best wishes
Gill
