What are the symptoms of patent ductus arteriosus?

What are the symptoms of patent ductus arteriosus?

Several symptoms. : A (p)persistent (d)ductus (a) allows blood to be shunted from the aorta to the pulmonary artery therefore causing more blood to go to the lungs. If the PDA is large, the increased blood flow to the lungs will determine a faster rate and work of breathing, the heart will enlarge and failure to thrive (grow appropriately). A PDA can and should be closed by a cardiologist or surgeon. ...Read more

What're the causes of congenital anomalies?

Multifactorial.: Genetic, environmental, infectious, metabolic reasons or even developmental accidents can cause birth defects. Taking Folic Acid at 1-5 mg daily throughout your reproductive life could prevent 95% of neural tube defects and up to 75% of cardiac defects. ...Read more

what is the meaning of bilateral patent fallopian tubes?

 what is the meaning of bilateral patent fallopian tubes?

Normal finding.: "Bilateral" = both sides (right & left). "Patent" = open. The "fallopian tubes" are the tubes leading from the uterus to the ovary, i.e. the tube where eggs travel down in order to implant in the womb. Having fallopian tubes open on both sides is a normal finding; unlike a blockage on one side (where the chances of conception go down by at least 50%), both sides being open is considered "normal". ...Read more

Is there a connection between atrial septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus?

Is there a connection between atrial septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus?

To a degree: Both are congenital development defects. Atrial septum should seal and patent ductus should close after birth. When identified in infancy they are quite treatable. Also later but preferably as early as possible fir most. ...Read more

What is the difference between a patent foramen ovale and atrial septum defect?

What is the difference between a patent foramen ovale and atrial septum defect?

Different: Patent foramen ovale is a temporary natural opening between two atria that allows fetal circulation to occur. Once born it closes spontaneously. An atrial septal defect is an abnormal opening between two atria that occurs due to incomplete formation of the atrial wall. It does not close spontaneously usually and may need surgery if it causes significant flow issues. ...Read more

What are the causes of umbilical hernia?

What are the causes of umbilical hernia?

Multiple: The most common causes for an umbilical hernia include stretching and thinning of the abdominal wall with increased intraabdominal pressure. The classic examples are preganant women and obese people. Lack of exercise and abdominal wall atrophy is another cause. Previous incisions around the umbilicus can result in umbilical hernias as well. ...Read more

What are causes of atrioventricular septal defect?

What are causes of atrioventricular septal defect?

Unknown: The heart is a very complex organ. We still do not fully understand how the normal heart develops in the fetus. We understand even less about what causes the heart to develop abnormally. It is likely that there are multiple genetic and environmental factors that contribute to abnormal cardiac development. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of ventricular foramen ovale problems?

What are the symptoms of ventricular foramen ovale problems?

Foramen Ovale: A foramen ovale (pfo) is a small hole between the two upper chambers of the heart. It exists as part of the "fetal circulation, " when babies are inside, lungs are full of amniotic fluid. The pfo allows oxygenated blood returning from the placenta to cross into the left atrium. Pfos usually close, however if they do not there is a very small risk for a stroke or tia. Most people have no symptoms. ...Read more

What?Causes ?The patent ductus arteriosus?

What?Causes ?The patent ductus arteriosus?

Causes the PDA: The PDA is a critical vessel that allows the blood to bypass the lungs and get to the placenta while babys are still inside, in mom's uterus. The lungs are full of amniotic fluid and don't do any gas exchange (o2 delivery and co2 release) eveyone is born with a pda, it persists... Open (patent) most commonly in premature babies. There is no absolute answer as to why it stays open in some people. ...Read more

Coarctation of the aorta . . . Always present from birth?

Coarctation of the aorta . . . Always present from birth?

Yes: By definition coarctation of the aorta is a abnormality of vascular embryology. At birth flow is adequate for the limited activity i the new born and early toddler years, but as children age, their growing bodies and activity out grows the narrowed aorta's ability to supply enough blood fast enough to keep up. ...Read more

What sort of symptoms are in a child with patent ductus arteriosus?

What sort of symptoms are in a child with patent ductus arteriosus?

It varies: Children with patent ductus arteriosus (pda) may be entirely asymptomatic (often diagnosed by a typical heart murmur) or they may have signs and symptoms of congesitve heart failure secondary to a left-to-right shunt. These symptoms may include a fast heart rate, fast, abnormal breathing, and failure to gain weight appropriately. The symptoms depend on the size of the PDA and degree of shunting. ...Read more
