Distal Aortic Stenosis
Narrowed heart valve: The aortic valve is between the left ventricle and the aorta. It ensures that blood flows from the heart to the body and not backwards. When the valve is malformed, it does not open fully and the ventricle must work harder to push blood to the body. The medical term for this condition is stenosis. ...Read more
Is mod to sever aorta stenosis with peak/mean pressure gradient of 57.06mmhg/37.30mmh requiring aorta valve replacement stat?
It could be: It depends upon whether symptoms are present. If the aortic stenosis is causing chest pain, congestive heart failure, shortness of breath or blackouts then this is usually regarded as a reason for prompt treatment. If there are no symptoms then watchful waiting is sometimes appropriate. BTW some patients in this age group qualify to have the valve implanted through a catheter via the groin. ...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

If the bicuspid valve isn't stenotic, then the physiology is dictated by the ihss primarily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mitral valve: The mitral valve has to open properly to let blood flow into the left ventricle from the atrium. If it doesn't, we call this stenosis. It has to close to keep the blood flowing toward the body, if it doesn't we call this regurgitation or insufficiency. Either or both problems can exist with the valve if its abnormal. Insufficiency is more common. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
