Just had an echocardiogram and results said: Mitral Valve : The mitral valve is normal in structure and function. There is a trace of mitral regurgitation , which may be physiologic. Tricuspid Valve: Tricuspid valve is normal. Physiologic tricuspid regurgitation. Right ventricular systolic pressure is normal. Pulmonic Valve: The pulmonic valve is not well seen, but is grossly normal. Pericardium/Pleural: There is no pericardial effusion . Left Ventricle: The left vetricle is normal in size. There is normal left vetricular wall thickness. Left ventricular systolic function is normal. The transmitral spectral doppler flow pattern is normal for age. The estimated EF is 65-70%, No regional wall motion abnormalities noted. Could you explain what these things mean and if there is anything that I can do to improve them. Thank you in advance for your help.
