Bailey MacKay

 

 

PATIENT: Bailey MacKay

 

HISTORY: asymptomatic murmur, systolic, left apex, g3

 

Abdominal U/S

 

Not Applicable

Echocardiography

SUMMARY

 There is acquired degenerative mitral valve disease here with no cardiac remodelling and therefore no indication for treatment; however the velocity of the mitral regurgitant jet indicates systemic hypertension and measurement of systolic blood pressure is recommended.

B-MODE

 

Comments:  cardiac chambers, valves and outflow tracts appear normal with the exception of the mitral valve which is thickened and irregular at their tips; and systolic function is good.  heart rate is approximately 80bpm, sinus rhythm

LA:Aortic ratio (RPS SA, normal <1.6) 1.6

 

LA:Ao ratio (RPS LA, normal <2.5) 2.5
