Dear Rathna, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

IVS(ed/es) Inter ventricular septum (IVS) thickness in end-diastole compared to end-systole (ed/es) is increased. These are measurements during heart contraction and relaxation during the normal heart-beat.

Left ventricular pressure work (LVPW) in end-diastole compared to end-systole (ed/es) is increased a little. This is a measurement of pressure work done during heart contraction and relaxation during the normal heart-beat.
This may indicate increased thickening of the heart muscle.

TRIVIAL TRICUSPID REGURGITATION means minimal leakage at the tricuspid valve on the right sided heart chambers.

All these are minor changes and significance depends on age, BP and others. Nothing to worry. These are common with high BP, advanced age etc.

Please consult your doctor for detailed evaluation and attaching importance to these findings.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Please ask for any clarifications before closing and rating this query.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck! Thank you!!
