Lead and Tricuspid valve
About 3 months ago my EP heard a murmur and after a TEE said my tricuspid valve was leaking high moderate range and borderline of needing surgical repair. I see my EP every 6-8 weeks to monitor the cardiomyopathy and ventricular arrhythmias and make med changes. I had a 3-month followup echo yesterday and the cardiologist that shares his office came into the room where the tech was doing the echo and said that the lead looked like it was twisted and may be causing a problem with the valve, but there was also thickening of the muscle and tissue around the valve. He and my EP were going to discuss. I don't see the cardiologist, only my EP, but it was my EP's hospital day and the cardiologist's patient day and he said the EP has discussed at length my case. I also have thickening of the heart muscle (reasons not determined) that caused me to have my mitral valve repaired 11 months ago on an emergency basis--3 months earlier it was fine. My tricuspid valve was fine 3 months before the EP heard the murmur--similar that happened to the mitral valve. Has anybody had a problem with their lead and tricuspid valve? My aortic valve is also leaking because of thickening, but not bad enough to repair. I had a pacer in 2015 for SSS, and after SCA due to ventricular arrhythmias, ICD/PM in 2016. I see my EP Tuesday. I remain active and exercise regularly and work as a field plant and animal biologist. Any advice, questions to ask, or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
