Can average diastolic pressure of 6.5 be a sign of tricuspid valve abnormality? (or other cardiac problem)
Not intelligible: Your question does not make senseGet a more detailed answer ›
Yes: I'll presume the three are causally related. The heart defect is likely on the tricuspid valve or a septal division of the heart leading blood from the right side of the heart to the lungs.

Yes, this may recur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Certainly frequent PVC's might be a sign of more serious dysrhythmia causing faintness/fast heart rate. You need to continue cardiac care ...Read more
Babies tell us a lot: Monitoring a fetus by fetal hr, ultrasound or the expectant woman's perception of activity is important.
