Here is some values my report showing. Aortic Root = 21mm Left atrium = 22mm IV septum = 09mm LV PW = 09mm LVED = 41mm LVES = 27mm EF = 70% F/S = 40% NORMAL SIZED LB WITH GOOD LV SISTOLIC FUNCTION NORMAL SIZED RA & RV FIRST DEGREE MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE NORMAL OTHER VALVES INTACT IAS & IVS NORMAL PERICARDIUM . My current symptoms are: 1) i am felling pain in left side of my heart almost every day 1 hour to 4 hour at different timings. Usually i feel it when i take a deep breath . 2) some time i feel like my heart is beating very heard like jumping. 3) Does high temperature effect on MVP patient health like here temperature goes to 45C usually.

Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic

The above parameters are within the normal range... Since the diagnosis is first degree MVP ( mitral valve prolapse) nothing much to worry.. you can lead a normal life.. only thing you must do is to avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, smoking which will have harmful effect on heart, also you must not strain much by going tom Gym, or exercise.... If you have have palpitation(sense of feeling your heart beat) or chest pain then you can consult the cardiologist, they will treat you... complications of MVP are rare... Do not worry...

Hi: in 2007 I had an EKG that showed normal sinus rhythm rate 55 but borderline left atrial abnormality RSR in V1 or V2. The doctor said this was an essentially normal result for me. At the time I was 33 yrs old 100/70 blood pressure and pulse of 52 and regular, no medication, and very active. Should I be worried?

I am writing this for one of my brother , He is a 41 years old male, not smoker complaining of hemoptysis since 6 months, that started one and half months after pulmonary vein isolation(PVI) for the second time) to treat atrial fibrillation, initially he was on warfarin that was stopped after one month of hemoptysis, but this did not stop the bleeding. Hemoptysis was in form of streaks in sputum. But was stormy pneumonia(2 months after beginning of hemoptysis), amount of blodd increased and sputum became full of blodd for 2 weeks until control of infection with antibiotics. Now the amount of blood decreased to be just small drop of blodd once or twice a day and sometimes streaks of blood with infrequent attacks of chest pain pleuritic in nature and no other respiratory symptoms. High resolution CT was done since one month that showed obstructed left superior pulmonary vein(as complication of (PVI) with two areas of pulmonary venous infarction located on left upper lobe. As per case reports, upper lobectomy was the management. Our question is, is there any other option for treatment ? We have plan to visit any good hospital in India to meet an excellent doctor. please advise for more.

Hi, So my Grandpa is 89 and is curently in the hospital. He has had Atrial Fibrillation for sometime now but has been very healthy up until the last couple months. He wil be fine one day then wake up the next and not be able to breath, walk and then is very confused and disoriented. We have him on blood thinners and are just trying to get to the bottom of whats happening. they feel these epsisodes are either caused from his heart or from these mini strokes in his brain. I just want another opinion or maybe some advice on possible treatments for him. he is a very strong man and is a fighter and wants to get better... any thoughts?
