Harry's Heart

Harry has had the result from his echocardiogram which Im pleased to say went well.
On examination he has a normal first and second heart sounds with a soft flow murmur at the lower left sternal edge. His echocardiogram once more shows a structurally and functionally normal heart. His end diastolic dimension is 33mm and end systolic dimension 23 mm giving a fractional shortening of 30%. He has no evidence of degeneration of his aortic or mitral valves.
This is great news for Harry as some paitents with APS can develop heart problems. Harry will be seen again in 12 months time by his cardiologist
