Please help me understand my mothers test results. Patient 89 years old with a leaking patch and pacemaker.
The LV size, global and regional function appears normal. The RV size is enlarged and the RV function is moderately diminished. The right atrium is severely enlarged. There is a pacer wire noted in the right ventricle. The left atrium is severely enlarged. The mitral leaflets are myxomatous and thickened. There is mitral annular calcification. No evidence of mitral value prolapse or mitral stenosis. The aortic root is of normal size. The tricuspid value and pulmonic values exhibit normal thickness and excursion. No pericardial effusion. By color flow Doppler, there is moderate mitral insufficiency. There is severe tricuspid insufficiency. The estimated PA systolic pressure is 46mmHg assuming a right arial pressure of 10mmHg consistent with moderate pulmonary hypertension. Left atrial dimension 5.8. Aortic root dimension 3.5. Aortic cusp separation 1.5. LV diastolic dimension 5.0. LV systolic dimension 3.3 Septal wall thickness 1.2
LV posterior wall thickness 1.0. LV ejection fraction 63%. Pericardial effusion none.
