    ejection fraction of 50

    My 23 year old daugther had an stress echo 4 years ago due to a heart murmer. The result was normal with ejection fraction of 60.During the last four years she has had yearly echo's just to monitor her murmer ( we were told it was due to mitral valve prolapse). Every year the cardiologist has told us she is OK but she should get yearly stress tests. I just found out that her last three echo/stress tests has been abnormal and her ejection fraction has been 50. Her cardialogist is not concerned and feels it is due to lack of exersise. My daughter was a cross country runner but has stoped running during the last three years.From what I have read this is a very low number for 23 year old and I am taking her to an specialist for cardiomyopathy to get a second openion. Any input is appriciated as I am getting so worried. Could some people have normaly low ejection fraction as her cardialogist is suggesting? Her echos only indicate low ejection fraction . some trace mital regurgition and mild diffuse hypokinesis.

    I am not a cardiologist, but i am of the opinion that if you have concerns you should contact a specialist. EF of 50 is fine for a normal life, but i think this needs to be discussed. My good wishes to you and your daughter.
