Had a echo
25 yr male
everything normal is size
But, there is a trace of mitral and tricuspid regergitation.
Is this bad
they also were not able to estimate the right ventricular systolic pressue (pulmonary artery) Is that bad?

WHat did they tell you about your situation? I found out I have mitral valve prolapse with regurgitaion. My valve leaks just a small amount of blood. It is the most common cardiac problem for people all over the world. Most people never know they have it and others have symptoms. Just before surgery or dental work you should take antibiotic to prevent bacteria from going to your heart valve(its like 1 in one million chance that it would happen but I dont play the lotto with my heart) You should be just fine and live a normal life. You may have symptoms like fast heart rate, anxiety, etc. but you may not. Most people dont have symptoms. I do however have symptoms such as racing heart, panic attack/anxiety but i am overcomming these things. You should have it checked out yearly to make sure it does not progress but it is not likely that it will. You just do these things to make sure!!! I dont know what tricuspid is but you are going to be just fine. Think positive and exercise is great for you and drink lots of water , cut out all the caffeine or sugars! Stay out of stressful situations. Just live a happy and healthy life!!
