One ​​of the physical examinations is called echocardiography. What can it tell about the heart?

Mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation

One ​​of the most common statements we make when we get our medical report is: Mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation, or tricuspid stenosis,< /strong>Is this a heart problem?

Tell me briefly about it. Our heart has two chambers: the right atrium, the left atrium and the right ventricle, the left ventricle, and the tricuspid and mitral valves connecting the atrium and the ventricle.

Mitral regurgitation and tricuspid regurgitation appearing on the physical examination report, if it is mild regurgitation, you don’t need to be afraid, normal people may also have it. I also had mild mitral regurgitation detected during a physical exam and didn’t deal with it.

However, if your report says moderate-to-severe regurgitation or valvular disease, you need to go to the hospital.

Changes in heart structure

There is another problem that we often encounter: the report indicates that the structure of the heart has become larger (either the atrium is larger or the ventricle is larger).

One ​​of the functions of color Doppler ultrasound is to tell us the structural changes of the heart (the heart is like a house, the color Doppler ultrasound can see the thickness of the walls and the size of each room), in this case, we also need to go to the hospital See a professional doctor for further diagnosis.
