Hello doctor,

Actually, my father has just had the first attack of heart and his troponin-T test value is 1.76 ng/ml. Also, his echo test reports are showing the TR and MR results in higher. He is planning to have angiography but I do not think that he should stop there. So please guide him. I need your help. I am searching for treatment.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

So basically after a heart attack, best possible treatment is angiography followed by angioplasty or bypass surgery. So he should have angiography done and further management will depend on angiography report. Till the time, he should continue medicines which will prevent development of further attack.

If possible, please upload his detailed echo report so as to interpret it better. Usually, mild to moderate MR (mitral regurgitation) and TR (tricuspid regurgitation) needs just medicine, may resolve with time.
