The following discussion regarding the results of your inspection:
Mild moderate MR: shows the presence of regurgitation (disturbance of the heart valve does not close properly) mitral valve with mild-moderate degree Trivial AR: shows the presence of very mild regurgitation of the mitral valve Mild TR: shows the mild regurgitation of the tricuspid valve Dilated chamber: enlargement of the heart space Hipokinetic all wall: decreased movement / activity throughout the heart wall. Systolic dysfunction: shows disruption / loss of contractility (ability of contraction) of the heart muscle due to various medical conditions of the heart.
