Hello doctor,

My wife's transthoracic echo doppler report interpretations are as follows.

1. No regional wall motion abnormality (LVEF 60 %).

2. Normal cardiac chamber dimensions.

3. a.Trace MR.

b. Trace TR, normal PASP.

4. IVC is normal in diameter.

5. No LV Clot, vegetation, pericardial effusion.

Are these findings fine, or is there anything to worry?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This echo is normal, however considering her diabetes status and dyslipidemia, it is better to subject her to further testing like treadmill test or CT coronary angiography to know the status of cardiac vessels. Patients with such risk factors frequently have blockages in the arteries, so should undergo further evaluation. I hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
