Ok, I finally got my echo results back. I still haven't talked with my doctor though. The report says I have an anterior mitral valve prolapse with trivial regurgitation, trivial aortic insufficiency and tricuspid regurgitation. No pulmonary hypertension, ejection fraction of 68%. Mitral valve is thickened and slightly redundant. Trivial mitral regurgitation by carotid doppler. Aortic valve appears to be normal tri-leaf with Y shaped closure and triangular opening. Trivial aortic insufficiency by color doppler. Tricuspid valve showed trivial tricuspid regurgitation.

LV Diastolic dimension 40
LV Systolic dimension 24
LV septum thickness 7
LV septum excursion 7
LV post wall thickness 6
LV post wall excursion 9
RV internal dimension 12
Left atrial dimension 30
Anterior MV ? opening 14
Anterior MV ? slope 107
Aortic root diameter 22
Aortic valve opening 16

Will the aortic insufficiency increase with time even though it's trivial. Every thing I have researched says that in a matter of years the valve will have to be replaced, is this true? And what would cause me to have these leaky valves? Shouldn't I be put on meds to slow the process of the aortic insufficiency?
