Thankyou a lot

Answer
Hi,

The mild tricuspid regurgitation is nothing for you to worry about at all. it is generally considered a normal finding. i would ask the dr that did the echocardiogram to review and comment on the accuracy of the pulmonary pressure reading, even if you do have some pulmonary hypertension it is very mild and likely of no significance, i would make sure it isn't just an error though! It will not have an effect on your pregnancy. As far as the LBBB goes, i would ask the cardiologist if all underlying causes have been ruled out.

Hope that was helpful,
