Explanation Of The Results Of Echocardiography Or Ultrasound Of The Heart?
Good afternoon doctor, permission to ask about my echo results:
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Echocardiography or ultrasound of the heart is one of the investigations in the heart. The examination is carried out using high frequency sound waves to capture images of the structure and function of the heart. This examination is carried out by a cardiologist.
There are many things that can be assessed. As with the results of the examination that you have lived. Where is known that the left ventricle of your heart has decreased mildly from its function in pumping blood. On the left and right ventricular wall of your heart chambers appear to have limited movement, the limitation of motion is still mild. In addition, there is also an abnormality in the mitral valve (a valve that separates the left ventricle of the heart with the left ventricle), which is the front door of the mitral valve, so that when the left ventricle pumps blood into the aortic veins to be conveyed throughout the body, the valve This mitral does not close completely (lifted towards the left ventricle), so the blood from the left ventricle becomes partially returned to the left ventricle.
To find out what causes this condition requires further examination. In addition, the results of this examination are only supportive, so it needs to be matched with your clinical condition. Therefore, you should consult your cardiologist again.
Thus hopefully useful.
