I am a 23 year old female. Had my 3rd baby 3 months ago. I get PVCS daily.They come in bigemeny and couplets. Only .25% of my heartbeats, but it is very difficult to fuction with these and my worsening panic disorder. I also get bradycardia at rest (47bpm). I'm an MA and have limited (but some) knowledge of the termonology in this echo. My cardiologist brushes it off as a mostly normal echo and that's all he will discuss with me about it. To me, it looks like there is a real valve problem. All of my valves have a small but prominent anomaly. Please help me understand why my cardiologist is brushing this echo off because I'm going nuts worrying! Thanks!
There is mild thickening of the anterior mitral valve leaflet. There is mild mitral regurgitation.
There is no significant mitral stenosis.
There is no evidence of mitral valve prolapse.
The aortic valve is trileaflet and opens well.
Mild aortic valve and annulus sclerosis.
No significant aortic valve stenosis or regurgitation noted.
The tricuspid valve appears structurally normal.
There is mild tricuspid regurgitation.
There is no pulmonary hypertension detected: pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) estimate is <40 mmHg.
The pulmonic valve appears structurally normal.
There is trivial pulmonic regurgitation.
There is no significant pulmonic stenosis.
Left atrial size is normal.
Normal left ventricular size, wall thickness and systolic function. Left ventricular ejection fraction is 60-65%. There is normal diastolic
function of the left ventricle.
Right atrial size is normal.
The right ventricle appears normal in size and function.
There is no significant pericardial effusion.
Aortic root is normal in size.
Proximal ascending aorta appears within normal limits.
The inferior vena cava is normal in size, with decreased respiratory
