It is hard to give you an accurate assessment of the situation without looking at your echocardiogram but I can give you some helpful pointers.
Aortic valve thickening, although abnormal, is a benign condition. There is no literature to suggest that it definitely progresses to aortic stenosis.
If you have a trileaflet aortic valve, it is very unlikely that you will develop aortic stenosis in your 40s or 50s. Hence, I don't think that you need to worry about it at this stage.
I presume that VPBs refers to ventricular premature beats. These do not predispose to stroke or atrial fibrillation and are considered benign in most people unless the burden is >10%. Hence, I don't think that this is a worrisome condition in your case.
Hope that helps
Ok great thanks for that :) is this something often in others my age? I was surprised to see this on my report. Yes VPBs .. ventricular premature beats and PVC's are what I have been having when Im stressed they often but Im trying to control that unfortunately I feel them very badly and they cause me alot of discomfort.
I also had a echo that reported mildly thickened mitral valve with mild annular calcification & mild aortic root calcification. I had trivial regurgitation which they said is hardly any. EF>60% Everything else was all normal. I had a nuclear stress test in 5/10 that was completely normal, so I am confused about my echo & exactly what it means.
I don't know how common it is seen in younger people, or if it means
that we have CAD or future problems. Maybe this doc can give us some answers.
