Atrial septal anatomy issue

Edited , 1 user is following.

Hello everyone.

I am 41 years old, 185cm tall, 77kg male. Not smoking/drinking, exercising regularly and generally adopting a healthy lifestyle. A few days ago I did a heart health check up and I am seeking some advice.

Please excuse me if the terminology used below is not absolutely accurate. English is not my first language, but I hope you can get the basic meaning of my story.

Well, there were two findings (both were not existing in my previous check up many years ago when I was about 26 years old):

  1. The atrial septal projects into the Right Atrium (RA) (type 1R) during the whole cardiorespiratory cycle. The two atriums are separated (hopefully there is no flow between chambers).

  2. The Doppler Ultrasound detected a small scale mitral valve glochine escape with the point of convergence, due to thickening at the edges of the glochines in front of the heart ring.

My doctor told me I should not take any action and my heart is at a very good shape. The ECG was perfect and all other heart parameters as well. She only advised me that I should not increase the weights I lift during exercising, since in that case I increase the pressure on the interatrial septal.

What is your opinion on the above? Should I be worried? Below you can see my issue depicted.


Thank you a lot!
