Hello, I was reading through my annual check-up echo results (MVR ~2 years ago) and it hit me that my ejection fraction seemed to be too high (73%). I don?t have other numbers to compare with since only one echo actually has the EF value. Everything else says EF is normal, without any numbers. If EF was out of range below the normal values, that is a problem. However, how bad is it to have EF that?s too high? I used to think that that just meant my heart was doing a great job pumping blood out, but then a few weeks ago I saw tobagotwo post that EF being too high isn?t that good either, so now I?m really worried. I don?t think I have any unusual symptoms; I feel fine every day.
My LV size (end diastole) is 4.0 cm, and LA size is 2.7cm. Aortic Cusp Separation is 1.6cm, which is really close to being out of range also that it?s starting to worry me.
Is EF of 73% really as dangerously high as I think it is? Is there anything I should be aware of now regarding this and possibly my aortic valve (nothing was ever mentioned to me about this valve before)? Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
