Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
My father has been diagnosed the following: 1. Tricuspid valve: thin and mobile with mild to moderate tricuspid regurgitation - PASP estimated at 36mmHg + RAP 2. Mitral Valve: mildly thickened and mobile with mild posterior annular calcification. There is a mild to moderate regurgitation. PASP very mildly elevated at 41-46mmHg. He is 80 years old. This condition has been prevalent for over six months now. He is on a dirutics and warfarin 7mg etc. What are his options? He was extremely active and fit prior to this event. Is it possible / wise to seek a valve replacement? Or based upon the information presented, allow the condition to be managed on a continuation of drugs? Could you advise of a top cardiologist within the United Kingdom [Norwich / Cambridge area] to discuss further. Thank you.
What is involved in the replacement thereof relating to my fathers case [both valves]? Can replacement be completed via key hole surgery?
Should he be on a cardio rehabilitation program?
