echocardiogram results

i had a echocardiogram for chestpain and also felling lightheaded i had 2 stents placed in may 2016 for a 80% blockage of mlad i am on palvix and asprain everyday the reason I had the echo was because my pcp heard a heart murmur witch I have never had until now  just wanted to see if anyone could help me with the results I will post them now

All cardiac valve are structurally normal with no hemodynamically
significant stenosis or regurgitation.
Normal biatrial dimension.
Normal Bi ventricular dimensions and function. Estimated left ventricular
ejection fraction of 55-60%.

Hi Im not a doctor but will offer whatever help I can. The results are very good. The EF is 55% which is perfect. There is little if any problem. All the valves are working well also. One question, do you have any Hypertension issues? I just asked because the left ventricle wall is thickened and this is sometimes a sign of raised BP over time. Anyway your in good shape! I guess you will be on the Plavix till next April! Keep us posted
