Aortic Stenosis Heart Murmur
Variance: A murmur intensity can be altered by different states such as by fluid status, tachycardia, bradycardia, standing, squatting, hand grip tightness, or by bearing down (Valsalva maneuver). The assessment of a murmur may be variable to a degree, such as from a nurse practitioner vs a cardiologist. Some professionals use electronic stethoscopes, so care is done to ensure careful assessment.
A heart murmur is a sound heard by a stethoscope made by the vibration of blood flow. It can be a normal finding in young healthy people, or can represent abnormal leakage (regurgitation) of a valve, valve narrowing (stenosis), or a congenital condition such as an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, ...Read more
Dr.Sevveg, Mod. Aortic Stenosis is new diangosis April 2014 found w Echo by New ♡Dr w poss mild hypokensis of Apex. No heart murmur April 2013, but YES rt side murmur in March '14 .Can D.M. cause it & Sob
Unlikely: Unlikely that DM caused AS. However DM does accelerate atherosclerotic and inflammatory process involved in plaque build up in coronary arteries and other vasculature which is a similar process involved in thickening and hardening of valves. SOB - shortness of breath needs to be worked up... Check with your doc... You will need stress testing...
Have multiple miscarriages. Have heart murmur, severe ectopic heart beats/lack oxygen to heart and pulm stenosis. Can they cause miscarriages?
Is GNC mens ripped Vitapak program (non stimulant) good for a 23 year old male with a slight heart murmur and bicuspid aorta?
I don't think so: After looking up the ingredients on GNC's website, I could not find a full ingredient list; therefore I cannot recommend it. Good luck. Go to a licensed professional, integrative medicine or naturopath, to find what's right for you.
Mitral regurgitation: Mr murmur is an early systolic, holosystolic, or also referred to as blowing systolic murmur best heard over the apex radiating to the left axilla. Aortic stenosis is an ejection systolic murmur best heard over the right upper stern all border, radiating to the neck, and there may be an ejection systolic click heard over same area and apex.See 1 more doctor answer
Multiple: The pitch is different. Also, each is better heard in a different location in the chest, and the duration of the murmur during the cardiac cycle are different.
Depends: Both vary separately and as a pair in their impact on the heart and circulatory system, from minimal to life threatening.
What would experts say? Could a hole in your heart and aortic stenosis be a life threatening illness?
Aortic stenosis: Restriction of opening of the aortic valve (valve between the heart and the circulation), due to deterioration of the valve over time, resulting in calcification and decreased opening. Common in older populations. Severe cases may require surgery to replace the aortic valve.See 1 more doctor answer
With 2 previous heart valve replacements and a heart working at 55% what is the rate of survival? Was born w aortic stenosis

Aortic stenosis: Please see a cardiologist who will follow your situation w/periodic echo-cardiograms and other ways to measure things. Peace and good health.
If the right and left ventrical of the heart are normal size, thickness and function, can the right ventrical still be dilated? Echo shows "no hemody sig aortic stenosis and rvdd 3.5. But shows norma
No.: If the right ventricular size and function are normal, the right ventricle is not dilated.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: The risk of major complications related to this procedure should be less than 5%. Recovery should be less than 5 days. The procedure can also be performed with minimally invasive, small incision techniques.
Critical aortic stenosis, TAVR denied by ins. Open heart not an option due to radiation damage, 3b nsclc. Tentative prognosis?
Sounds very serious.: Your cardiologist should appeal to your insurance company. Your case is very unusual because of previous chest wall radiation. Prognosis without procedure depends on aortic valve area, pressure gradient, native myocardium, and a lot of other factors. You need to ask your cardiologist.
I know my chemical induced asthma didn't cause aortic stenosis. I've heard D.M. Type II causes heart problems & all 3 can aggravate each other. T/F?
More complicated: NIDDM is associated with coronary artery disease, not aortic stenosis alone. You don't mention how long you had aortic stnosis, but if it has been recent, it may be due to changes atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) associated with NIDDM. There is a big discussion whether asthma is associated with atherosclerosis.

If one has anemia & a symptomatic aortic stenosis is it safe to continue exercise if you feel out of breathe? Will it cause any stress on the heart?
The abnormal narrowing of the aortic valve. Progressive narrowing of the aortic valve means the heart must work harder to contract and "squeeze" the blood through a smaller and smaller outflow orifice. This will eventually cause symptoms such as chest pain, dyspnea, ...Read more
