Aortic Stenosis Vs Mitral Regurgitation Murmur
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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. ...Read more
Patched Vsd, aortic stenosis mitral regurgitation. Going to dentist w/ prophylaxis. 24 M. What chances do I have of getting endocarditis?
Discuss w/ dentist: This is something that you need to have your dentist and physician discuss to determine what if any precautions must be determined. In all likelihood they will recommend the use of a pre treatment antibiotic but again that must be determined by these health care professionals. ...Read more
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. ...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... ...Read more
Mitral regurgitation: Our echocardiogram studies are so sensitive that they frequently show tiny amounts of insignificant valve leak, with trace mitral regurgitation being the commonest of these. It is not a concern. To have a murmur you have to have enough turbulent blood flow to make an audible noise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 questions: Aortic stenosis w/o symptoms has good prognosis. Symptomatic as has 5, 3, and 2 yr life expectancy depending on symptoms. Chest pain (5), passing out (3) and heart failure (2) yrs. This improves if the valve is replaced. Mitral valve prolapse does not significantly affect your prognosis by itself. Some though can worsen and begin to leak. This can also lead to heart failure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How sensitive is doppler echo for seeing mitral regurgitation? Reliable to rule it out if you have a murmur?
Had a murmur, My echo says I have trace to mild mitral regurgitation in one valve. Normal weight, lipids, bp, glu. Reason to f/u with cardiology?
Not really: Trace to mild regurgitation on echocardiogram is likely not the cause of your auscultated "murmur" as that would be very hard to hear. I suspect your doctor thought there was a murmur, and it turns out not to be clinically significant. If you are truly asymptomatic: no SOB, no chest pain, etc., then no need for cardio based on this finding alone. As for preventative care, ensure lipids really norm ...Read more
My son has mitral valve prolapse and mild aortic valve stenosis. He has been drinking a lot lately, even very large amounts. He is 22, I am worried.
Worry about: The drinking, his heart will be ok for many years ...Read more
Different: The mitral valve sits between the left atrium, which receives blood from the lungs, and the left ventricle, which pumps blood to the body. Mitral regurgitation is "backleak" of blood from the left ventricle back to the left atrium. Mitral stenosis is restricted opening of the valve, partially blocking blood flowing from the atrium to the ventricle. Both can exist in the same patient. ...Read more
Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...Read more
A disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back ...Read more
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
