What does it mean if an echo shows you have a mildly dilated right ventricle & mild pulmonary hypertension?

What does it mean if an echo shows you have a mildly dilated right ventricle & mild pulmonary hypertension?

Pulmonary HTN: Normally the right side of the heart is a low pressure system(only needs to pump blood to the lungs for oxygenation). For many different reasons, sometimes this low pressure system increases in pressure. This can create shortness of breath and low oxygen levels. If someone is asymptomatic with pulmonary hypertension, they should be followed especially if there is no known cause. ...Read more

Hypertension (Definition)

A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

I have a mildly dilated right ventricle and mild pulmonary hypertension. Can I get pregnant?

I have a mildly dilated right ventricle and mild pulmonary hypertension. Can I get pregnant?

Yes, higher risks.: Yes but under the supervision of a cardiologist since pregnancy will increase cardiac output, heart rate and volume and can exacerbate those conditions you already have. It would be considered a moderate to high risk pregnancy. Those conditions of right sided overload could be improved by losing weight and treating sleep apnea. ...Read more

Small left sided heart with abnormal septal motion in ventricle EF 60-65% heart is normal including thickness. Possible pulmonary hypertension cause?

MRI: If you have severe pulmonary hypertension, you may have Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. This is potentially a serious diagnosis. Intracardiac and intrapulmonary shunting must be ruled out. A cardiac MRI and nuclear shunt test can make this determination. These tests are likely only available at a major referral center - London. Good luck. ...Read more

How can ct/x-ray determine blockage of a vp shunt in intracranial hypertension (not hydrocephalus ) there is no change in ventricle sizing in iih?

How can ct/x-ray determine blockage of a vp shunt in intracranial hypertension (not hydrocephalus ) there is no change in ventricle sizing in iih?

They can't: A shunt blockage will not show on either ct or xrays. Useful methods to assess for blockage include 1. Radionucleotide shunt study 2. Shunt interrogation by your neurosurgeon, or 3. Dilated ophthalmological exam to check for papilledema. If in doubt circle back with your neurosurgeon. ...Read more
