EF is 40-45%

Mom's heart has recovered yet again. The EF has been calculated at 40 to 45%.

The left atruim is moderately dilated. The mitral value leaflets appear thickened, but open well. There is moderate mitral regurgitation. There is mild tricuspid regurgitation. Right ventricular systolic pressure is elevated at 50-60mmHg. Moderate aortic regurgitation. Trace pulmonic valvular regurgitation. Minimal pericardial effusion. The Transmitral spectal Doppler flow pattern is suggestive of impaired LV relaxation.
