Hello XXXXXXX

After reviewing all the echo pages attached by you and after going through the medical details I can understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that

1. Your cardiac pumping capacity is 60% as per your reports which is pretty good.

2. There is diastolic dysfunction which is the result of ageing process and is not a significant issue in your case scenario.

3. I don’t see anywhere written in the report about aneurysm. However your aortic dimensions are slightly on the higher side but within normal range.

Overall taking into consideration your age group it’s a fairly ok report.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards

Detailed Answer:
Anxiety and stress are important causes of elevated blood pressure and high blood pressure in turn can lead to Lv hypertrophy which can in turn lead to diastolic dysfunction.

Second important reason is age related wear n tears and stiffness that Comes in cardiac muscles. High normal aortic dimensions is also the result of degenerative changes.

Healthy lifestyle routine is the key to healthy life. Eat healthy, exercise or daily morning walks, no smoking should be practiced.

What shows that I have diastoylic dysfunction of 2? What on the echo shows that? I am confused because my blood pressure is usually good only short times of anxiety does it go up..so if it is blood pressure that causes this and I do not have high blood pressure most of the time.. what else could cause this? Could it be a misreading of the ultrasound tech or doctor??

Detailed Answer:
Ma’am you are getting more and more stressed, just relax.

Mild concentric lvh with Mitral velocities Of E more than A is usually suggestive of grade II dysfunction. However this should be backed up by TDI imaging which is not there.

Transiently high blood pressure which patients usually have no clue of can also cause such variations. Again I wanna assure you that your report overall is alright and there is nothing alarming. Just relax.

Pulse rate of 85 to 90 is within normal heart rate range.

I hope this information will answer your query and relieve your worries.
