    Echocardiogram Report
    An_267873 posted:
    I'm a 44 yr old female. I needed an ekg for clearance for gastric bypass surgery. There wasn't enough flow to the extremities. Basically, abnormal. I was referred to a cardiologist for a 2D echo. There are some normal findings, but there are some findings that concern me. Mild increase in left ventricle wall thickness per gender. Mild mitral annular calcification present. Trivial mitral regurgitation present. Trivial tricuspid regurgitation present. My lvsd is 1.2 cm. My lvpwd is 1.2 cm. My mv Vmax is 1.45 m/s. My pv Vmax is 1.16 m/s. Those are the only ones put of normal range. Any suggestions?

    There are no medical professionals on this message board so please consult with the cardiologist you were referred to, to go over the 2D echo report together.
