Can there be resection with commissurotomy for infundibular stenosis?

Can there be resection with commissurotomy for infundibular stenosis?

Be more specific: Well i guess no one is answering this because we don't understand the question. I am assuming you are talking about the mitral valve and mitral stenosis.

Ask to see the image: I suggest you ask the surgeon to show you the old and new images so that you can see the "obvious" difference between the old and new images. If the disc is indeed compressing your cord and you have cord compression symptoms (numbness, weakness, unsteadiness, bowel/bladder symptoms, etc) then you will need surgery.

L5 and s 1 stenosis. is it a permanent condition?

Depends: Lumbar stenosis is typically does not resolve on its own. It usually from hypertrophied ligaments or bones. If, however, stenosis is secondary to a herniated disc, this may resolve on its own. Discs have a fluid-like component which can dessicate over time, and as the disc dries up it lifts pressure off the nerve roots. ...Read more
