ihss and bicuspid aortic valve?

Dr. Calvin Weisberger
Cardiology 51 years experience
HCM: Not sure what you're asking. Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy in series with a bicuspid aortic valve has a potential for real trouble if the bicuspid becomes stenotic. If the bicuspid valve isn't stenotic, then the physiology is dictated by the ihss primarily.
Dr. Creighton Wright
General Surgery 56 years experience
Common: Two individual entities but can occur together. If aortic stenosis, then left ventricular and septal sub aortic stenosis can happen as well. Hiss is idiopathic, cause not known both can cause LVH , heart failure, sudden death etc.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Can massage therapy help an aortic aneurysm?

1 doctor answer5 doctors weighed in
Dr. James Eitner
Family Medicine 34 years experience
No AND...: If a person knows that they have an aortic aneurysm, it is likely large enough that it was found during a physician's exam. Some aortic aneurysms can be very sensitive and could rupture easily. While I am not able to find any reports of a ruptured aneurysm from massage, I do know of an aneurysm rupturing when a patient was being physically moved to an operating table.

What are normal symptoms of an aortic aneurysm repair?

Dr. Louis Grenzer
Cardiology 55 years experience
See below: The repair is an operation so you might have pain from the incision. Now if there are complications, you could get many different symptoms depending on the type of complication. The aneurysm itself could cause pain or an abnormal pulsation in the abdomen but most commonly are discover by an x-ray for something else or at the time of a routine physical examination.

Can someone with coarctation of the aorta get a body piercing or a tattoo?

Dr. Andrew Freeman
Cardiology 18 years experience
Sure: You might be worried about an infection of a repaired coarct. I would speak with your heart doctor or surgeon before proceeding, because you may need antibiotics if there was another heart issue fixed at the same time (coarct is often linked to other problems). In most cases, you should be fine, though. A quick call is important before you do anything invasive.

Progressive narrowing of the mitral valve can cause heart rhythm disturbances and the development of heart failure symptoms. This condition can be corrected with either mitral balloon valvuloplasty or surgery.
