Leaking Tricuspid Valve
What is more urgent to repair: a severely leaking tricuspid valve (in a congestive heart) or a decortification of a right lung partially collapsed?
Depends: That really depends on the variables - impossible to make a global statement. It would be really nice if some talented surgeon could do both at the same operation. Never have seen it, but it's worth investigating. Don't be put off if the first surgeon you ask says, no. It would be an unusual request. ...Read more
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

My daughter has hlhs and she has had her final surgery the fontan. mild leaking of the tricuspid valve. Prognosis?

What do you suggest if my child has hlhs and she has had her final surgery ( fontan procedure), now with mild leaking of the tricuspid valve ?
Echo/follow up: The effect and success of the surgery on overall heart function can be determined by further testing. Usually a cardiac echo, cardio pulmonary exercise testing can be used to view the structure and test the function of the heart during stress. A small leak in the valve should not typically cause problems and will be followed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
First PDA: Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a heart problem that affects some babies soon after birth. In PDA, abnormal blood flow occurs the aorta and the pulmonary artery. Before birth, these arteries are connected by a blood vessel called the ductus arterioles, a vital part of fetal blood circulation.After birth, the ductus arteriosus closes. Sometimes the ductus arteriosus remains open, allowing oxygen-rich blood from the aorta to mix with oxygen-poor blood from the pulmonary artery. This can strain the heart and increase blood pressure in the lung arteries. ...Read more

Hard to know...: More follow-up and directed testing may be necessary, especially for the pulmonary hypertension, in order to offer you an accurate prognosis. What's the cause? And how rapidly are the valve architecture and pulmonary pressures changing? These questions need to be answered to offer you a prognosis. Coordinate with Cardiologist. ...Read more
