A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more

Why does a partial or full avsd cause a holosystolic murmur? Is it because associated valve regurgitation? Thanks.

Why does a partial or full avsd cause a holosystolic murmur? Is it because associated valve regurgitation? Thanks.

Typically: Iin an avsd, there will typically be a systolic ejection murmur from increased flow across the pulmonary valve related to pulmonary overcirculation. The vsd shunting will often be low velocity and not produce an audible murmur, so any holosystolic murmur would usually derive from av valve regurgitation, a common problem in this defect. ...Read more
