Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,

After going through the medical details provided by you, I would like to inform you that overall it's a normal echo report.

However, there is irregular thickening of the interventricular septum (it's a wall that separates right and left ventricle) which is sometimes present normally also but sometimes due to this asymmetry patient can feel symptoms like giddiness.

If you don't have any symptoms of giddiness or lightheadedness then there is nothing to worry about.

I hope this information will answer your query. Feel free to ask further.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap

my ventricular septum is extremly thin & flops around like a flag. Blood collected there, formed a clot. When I got to the hospital the doctors told me I had a stroke & after a TEE they told me I had an very large aneurysm starting in heart & went to my brain. Then said what was wrong with my heart. They said nothing could be done for the septum, that was eight years ago. Has anything changed? Have you ever heard of this? I am a 60 year old female. This was not hereditary no other health issues.

My father-in-law gone thru CT Scan of his brain as he got fainted two times. Findings: There are patchy hypodensities in left frontal paraventricular white matter. Remaining brain parenchyma of both cerebral hemispheres show no significant abnormality. Sylvian fissures, cortical sulci, both lateral & third ventricles are mildly dilated. interventricular septum is in the middle. Rest other findings are normal.So what should we interpret? Is it a serious matter? How it can be cured?
