Hi,

Thanks for the reports

Yes, the reports suggest Rheumatic Heart Disease, its fortunate that though these is severe value impairment, your wife has no specific symptoms.

It is strongly advised for her to get a opinion from the cardiologist at the earliest.

These conditions if become symptomatic and reach to intolerable severity, surgery is the only option that remains.

Hope, I answered your query
