Can my leaky valve cause shortness of breath?
- The data suggest evidence of some right heart failure that may explain your shortness of breath with minimal exertion.
- Your pulmonary valve is leaking, which could be the result of a problem with the valve itself, or secondary to "Pulmonary Hypertension" (plus a couple of other things, but less likely I think).
- Whether your symptoms and the echo results are related to the ablation procedure I can't tell from this information.
- Your max heart rate is probably your pacemaker at work, and your heart may no longer be able to beat faster.
