Patient discussion about regurgitant

Q. what do you do with a broken heart? I HAD A ECHO DONE THIS WEEK AND CONCLUSION WAS: 1)SEVERE MIRTAL REGURGITATION WITH LEFT ATRIAL DILATATION 2)LOW NORMAL LV FUNCTION CHEST X RAY IMPRESSION WAS: 1)NORMAL SIZE HEART WITH PROMINENT LEFT HEART BORDER. 2)PROMINENT MARKINGS WITH PROMINENT CHANGES. 3)THE BONES ARE OSTEOPENIC. BLOOD TEST....CHEMISTRY B TYPE NATRIURETIC PEPTIDE HIGH 260
