Can you explain subaortic stenosis?

Can you explain subaortic stenosis?

MANY OPTIONS: 1st q to ask: was the laminectomy appropriate tx of choice initially? Signific # of back pain pts are s/p laminectomy. Was laminectomy for stenosis or herniated disc & then u developed stenosis subsequently? Back surgeries r great if successful 1st surgery. If not, repeat surgery has very poor success rates.Natural options always better.Lose wt #1, if overwt. Then research the many other options. ...Read more

Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis (Definition)

Valvular pulmonic stenosis is the condition of an abnormal narrowing of the pulmonic valve. The pulmonic valve is between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery and prevents reverse flow back into the right ventricle. Of the valve conditions, PS is rare, but when present can result in problems of the right ventricle which has to work harder to overcome the narrowed ...Read more

How are aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation murmur different?

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 more

How do you diagnose mitral valve stenosis?

How do you diagnose mitral valve stenosis?

Stethoscope & echo: Mitral stenosis can be diagnosed by a characteristic murmur heard with a stethoscope. This can be confirmed by an echocardiogram (an ultrasound exam) which can help assess the severity of the narrowing of the valve. ...Read more

How could mitral valve stenosis be treated?

How could mitral valve stenosis be treated?

If severe, surgery: True, classical mitral stenosis is caused by rheumatic fever. Some types can be very aggressive causing compromised cardiac output & symptoms of marked shortness of breath & fatigue. There are no medical interventions that treat mitral stenosis. This leaves, when the time is appropriate, surgical repair or replacement. Balloon based interventions have not proven to be satisfactorily effective. ...Read more

Can you explain renal artery stenosis?

Can you explain renal artery stenosis?

Will try: Renal artery stenosis is a blockage of the blood flow to the kidney. This may be associated with high blood pressure. It can be diagnosed with a doppler ultrasound of the renal artery in suspected individuals, or some form of a renal angiogram (such as ct or mr angiograms). The stenosis can be dilated sometimes resulting in a decrease in blood pressure levels. ...Read more

Please explain what it "mild valvular aortic stenosis with mild aortic regurgitation"?

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

How are tight mitral stenosis & severe mitral stenosis different?

How are tight mitral stenosis & severe mitral stenosis different?

Unsure: "tight" mitral stenosis is not an official medical term. Severe mitral stenosis, as one could imagine is a higher degree of obstruction at the valve with greater consequences on blood flow (cardiac output) and greater consequences on the lungs (buildup of fluid in the lungs.). ...Read more

How could pulmonary hypertension in mitral stenosis prevent pulmonary edema?

Less flow to lungs: If the pressure in the pulmonary artery is high enough, the right ventricle's ability to pump bood to the lungs is diminished. Less blood flow to the lungs means that there is less fluid to leak out into the air spaces ( alveoli). ...Read more

What can be done for severe degenerative aortic valve stenosis?

What can be done for severe degenerative aortic valve stenosis?

Replacement of valve: Surgical replacement of aortic valve is the standard of care. No medicines can relieve the blockage. More recently percutaneous valve replacement has become available for patients who are at a high risk from surgery for aortic valve replacement. This procedure can be performed with a catheter through the groin, but carries its own complicaitons and risks. ...Read more

Why does acute rheumatic fever target the mitral valve to cause mitral valve stenosis?

It can target any va: Rheumatic fever is no respecter of valves. Mitral valve, followed by aortic valve involvement occur. Rarely is the pulmonic or tricuspid valve involved. Of course, joints, skin (rash) nodules and various neurologic sequelae are also found. ...Read more
