Hello and welcome

your echocardiography report suggest severe accentric mitral regurgitation. Which may increase in future and may need for correction. mitral regurgitation means normally blood should go from left atrium to left ventricle through mitral valve there is a tear mitral valve so some amount of blood again comes back from left ventricle to left atrium.
At present you should continue with treatment and regular monitoring of PT and INR.

Thank you for your queary

Wish you Healthy Heart
