Well that depends on the cause of the heart murmurs
. An ultrasound
of the heart is usually the next step. Murmurs can be completely normal in some people. It could also indicate a leaky or misfunctioning heart valve, a small hole between chambers of the heart, or a dilated aorta
or pulmonary artery
. If a cause is found, then you can find out what treatments are available. But the cause needs to be identified first. Chest X-rays and EKG's are often ordered, but an ultrasound (or echocardiogram
) will be the test that definitively tells you the cause.
