Is it safe for a 16 year old to take creatine ?

Supplements are: usually nothing more than empty promises. Creatine swells the muscles with water but doesn't make you stronger. No magic product makes working out easier. If you train properly, stay consistent, stay hydrated, and eat properly (with balanced proteins), you will see results. Special products are just a way of getting your money by feeding on your desire for quick results. ...Read more

Low risk: The genetics of heart formation are spread over several different chromosomes so replication of any given defect are rare.If you or your spouse had any form of congenital heart defect, the cited risk for any of your kids would be ~4 % for any defect.If you both did it would rise to ~10% for any form of defect. If neither have any defect, the issue arose at random but risk is > than those without. ...Read more

I am 74 old, 73 in. Tall, 4.8cm ascending aortic aneurysm, with bicuspid aortic valve, when should it be repaired?

Valve is problem: Aneurysm is small and secondary to turbulant blood flow across the abnormal valve. Bicuspid valves generally begin to calcify in the 5th and 6th decades of life leading to Aortic Valve stenosis. You should have a cardiologist and get annual echocardiograms and when the gradient across the valve is > 40mmHG and you have symptoms the valve should be replaced. Tx of aneurysm unnecessary at that size. ...Read more

Is creatine monohydrate good for a 16 years old body builder or it can stunt the growth or hurt the kidneys and the livers? Answer me please

Must be done right: You can overdo creatine at your age. While it will not stunt your growth, in excessive amounts and without proper fluid, it can stress or be harmful to your kidneys.

Many: The standard approach is a full sternotomy. There are 2 minimally invasive approaches; a mini upper sternotomy and a mini right anterior thoracotomy.

Can you tell me about surgery for bicuspid aortic valve disease?

Can you tell me about surgery for bicuspid aortic valve disease?

No surgery: Bicuspid aorta is not indication for surgery.
However, with age, bicuspid aorta may progress to aortic stenosis (when valve opening is severely limited). Surgery for aortic stenosis is performed only when the aortic valve area is severely or critically reduced (and not before). Progression from bicuspid aorta to aortic stenosis may take years or decades (even sometimes never) to take place. ...Read more

Severe aortic regurgitation will eventually cause the left ventricle to enlarge and fail but it takes decades. Severe ar should be followed with serial annual echoes. Valve replacement is indicated if function begins to deteriorate (usually followed as ejection fraction and end-systolic dimension.). ...Read more
