What would cause a sudden development of tricuspid stenosis?

What would cause a sudden development of 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

Are there any natural treatments for tricuspid stenosis?

Are there any natural treatments for tricuspid stenosis?

No: Don't forego the benefits of living in the 21st century. If you are responsible for the physical and emotional well-being of a young person with tricuspid stenosis, and you are considering foregoing surgery in the hopes of finding an herb, magic food, or physical treatment, please don't delude yourself. The disability caused by valve disease is devastating. ...Read more

Do both tricuspid valve stenosis and regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?

Possibly: Tricuspid stenosis is more likely to cause hypertrophy (thickening) of the right ventricle, whereas tricuspid regurgitation is more likely to cause dilatation, where the chamber increases in volume without much thickening. ...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

Echo results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Mixd plaques no stenosis found. Pls expln.

Echo results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Mixd plaques no stenosis found. Pls expln.

More info: So I'm a little confused because an echocardiogram can't really see plaques. I can explain the concentric lvh: this means that the heart muscle is thickened; the most common reasons are because of longstanding high blood pressure or narrowing of the aortic valve. ...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

Does Moderate Aortic Stenosis with mild hypokensis of the apex. Require more than medicine? On exertion I get short of breath. Does it Need surgery?

Does Moderate Aortic Stenosis with mild hypokensis of the apex. Require more than medicine? On exertion I get short of breath. Does it Need surgery?

Depends: Depends on what your doctor is calling moderate AS. Need to know your valve area and pressure gradient. You may want to look into a cardiac cath to more accurately see how severe the gradient is and should have a TEE. If you have moderate AS and are a good candidate for an Aortic Valve repair, there are many doctors that would get it done if you continue to be symptomatic. Watch your BP too ...Read more

What are some good homeopathic medicines for calcified aortic valve/ aortic stenosis?

What are some good homeopathic medicines for calcified aortic valve/ aortic stenosis?

Not first treatment: Homeopathy is not the first treatment to be used in aortic stenosis. 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

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

My dad has "40% stenosis at it's origin" in LAD & 40% plaque in the OM1 of LCx. He takes aspirin, beta blocker & chol. Drugs. His heart attack risk?

Manageable: If he has no symptoms, the recommended medical regimen includes the medications he is taking. The only addition, based on his risk factors, would be an ACE inhibitor (highly recommended for diabetes, but may also be helpful otherwise). He should not smoke and all around him should not smoke. If he can be active in moderation, that's good! He should be aware of symptoms and notify his doc ASAP! ...Read more

L5 and s 1 stenosis. Is it a permanent condition?

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

Why don't doctors intervene when there is a 70% stenosis?

Not always curative: In patients with renal artery stenosis several factors are considered to determine if intervention is indicated. If the kidney is already scarred and small and BP is well controlled with 2-3 medications than angioplasty is not indicated even is stenosis is high grade ie 70 % or above. ...Read more

What are some common complications from aeortic stenosis?

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

I have been diagnosed as having stenosis of the spine. What can I expect?

I have been diagnosed as having stenosis of the spine. What can I expect?

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

What is mitral stenosis?

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
