I had an ultrasound of the heart, looking for pulmonary hypertention, (no sign of this condition, thank god :)

There was findings of:

Mitral Valve - Leaflets are thickened, there is a trace of mitral regurgitation

Tricuspid Valve - Leaflets are normal. There is a trace of tricuspid regurgitation.

Venous - normal size. There is a greater than 50% respiratory chance in the inferior vena cava dimension.

Can anyone tell me what this means? I'm sure it's nothing serious or my dr would have made an appointment alot sooner than three weeks out for follow up on these results. Just curious that's all.

Thanks in advance for any information.
