Medicine For Tricuspid Stenosis
May not be sudden: A new diagnosis does not necessarily mean the finding is sudden or even new. It may not have been noticed before because it was mild & has now become more noticeable, for various possible reasons. Your doctor knows your history & your symptoms & is in a better position to clarify what is going on & why & what to do next. Age of the patient is a factor too. Are you the one with it? ...Read more

Can both tricuspid valve stenosis and tricuspid regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?
Sort of: The right atrium tends to enlarge somewhat with both conditions; it is more so with tricuspid stenosis. Technically though it is an enlargement, not a hypertrophy (which means muscular thickening). Ra enlargement with tr would imply either severe tr or very elevated pulmonary resistance pressures. ...Read more

Summary of my resent echogram; 1-Low normal left ventricular function. Ejection fraction is est.52% 2-Mild left atrial enlargement. 3-Mild to moderate aortic valve regurgition. 4-Moderate aortic valve stenosis. 5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation. 6-Mode
Need cardiologist!: There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Full cardiology evaluation -- and depending on how much the valve problem is impacting cardiac function and the patient's life, possibly surgery -- is required. That said, there are a few homeopathic remedies known to help. But you definitely need a professional homeopath for this. Care should be collaborative w/cardiology. ...Read more
My mother has severe aortic stenosis and has converted to a-fib a few days ago. She was placed on pradaxa. Is it the right drug choice for her? Thanks
Depends: Severe aortic stenosis with atrial fibrillation should at least be considered for surgery. If not a surgical candidate then considered for a new type of valve procedure called tavi or tavr. Pradaxa was approved to reduce stroke risk caused by atrial fibrillation. The one issue is it should be afib that was not a result of valvular heart disease. That is something her cardiologist should decide. ...Read more

I took gabapentin for cervical stenosis. I had foot cramps and went off the drug. Cramps better, but legs still ache, could this drug induce this?
Depends: Lumbar stenosis is typically does not resolve on its own. It usually from hypertrophied ligaments or bones. If, however, stenosis is secondary to a herniated disc, this may resolve on its own. Discs have a fluid-like component which can dessicate over time, and as the disc dries up it lifts pressure off the nerve roots. ...Read more

Several: As aortic stenosis worsens, there is less blood leaving the heart. Complications can result from that decrease blood flow, including passing out, chest pains, or pressures/fluid building up in lungs (chf). Also, there is a higher incidence of avms (arterial-venous malformations) in the intestines leading to GI bleeding. ...Read more
Depends on cause and: Severity. Physical therapy and injections can help early. Pain is usually the first symptoms, and leaning over (flexing the lumbar spine) will make it feel slightly better. If it is progressing, you can start to pinch nerves that go to you your legs (assuming lumbar stenosis). It usually does not progress to something as severe as paralysis unless it is from a bad cause like vertebral instability. ...Read more
Narrowing: Mitral stenosis is a narrowing of the valve that controls the flow of blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle of the heart. This can have many causes and, depending upon the severity of the stenosis, may or may not cause symptoms. This must be followed, because the degree of stenosis can increase over time and require replacement. ...Read more
