Could ventricular septal defect cause diastolic murmur?

Could ventricular septal defect cause diastolic murmur?

Two ways: A large vsd with increased pulmonary blood flow may cause a diastolic flow rumble caused by a large amount of flow coming back from the lungs across the mitral valve into the left ventricle. Perimembranous and supracristal vsds can cause aortic valve deformation, and subsequent development of a diastolic murmur of aortic valve insufficiency. ...Read more

Heart Murmur (Definition)

A heart murmur is a sound heard by a stethoscope made by the vibration of blood flow. It can be a normal finding in young healthy people, or can represent abnormal leakage (regurgitation) of a valve, valve narrowing (stenosis), or a congenital condition such as an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, ...Read more

Can ventricular septal defect cause diastolic or systolic murmur?

Can ventricular septal defect cause diastolic or systolic murmur?

Yes: Almost all vsd's cause a syhstolic murmur. Larger defects with a lot of flow across them cause a diastolic murmur from increased flow across the mitral valve. ...Read more

Diastolic murmur go with aortic regurgitation?

Diastolic murmur go with aortic regurgitation?

Yes: A diastolic decreshendo high pitched murmur heard best leaning forward with the stethoscope over the lower sternum suggest aortic regurgitation, although further evaluation will be necessary. ...Read more

Diastolic murmur aortic regurgitation. Is this bad?

Diastolic murmur aortic regurgitation. Is this bad?

Yes: How bad depends on regurgitant fraction, left ventricular dimension, ejection fraction, pulmonary pressures. Echocardiogram and cardiac cath. Needed to assess for correction. ...Read more

Hello doctors, can ventricular septal defect cause diastolic murmur?

Hello doctors, can ventricular septal defect cause diastolic murmur?

Not typical: The classic VSD physical finding is of course a holosystolic murmur. However, if the VSD is subarterial or supracristal, it can distort the aortic valve, sometimes causing leaflet prolapse. If this results in significant aortic insufficiency, there will be an associated diastolic murmur (with the insufficiency representing an indication for surgical repair). ...Read more

Is there diastolic murmur in pulmonal stenosis?

Is there diastolic murmur in pulmonal stenosis?

Pulmonary stenosis: The pulmonary valve opens when the right ventricle contracts. This is during systole. So, if there is pulmonary stenosis, the murmur would be observed during systole. If the valve would be leaking, however, that would be heard when the valve is supposed to be closed or during diastole... ...Read more

How are aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation murmur different?

Mitral regurgitation: Mr murmur is an early systolic, holosystolic, or also referred to as blowing systolic murmur best heard over the apex radiating to the left axilla. Aortic stenosis is an ejection systolic murmur best heard over the right upper stern all border, radiating to the neck, and there may be an ejection systolic click heard over same area and apex. ...Read more

Can anterior mitral leaflet redundancy with trivial regurgitation cause ventricular tachycardia?

Can anterior mitral leaflet redundancy with trivial regurgitation cause ventricular tachycardia?

Usually low risk: Mitral valve redundancy, usually called prolapse, usually produces no symptoms or minor symptoms. If the valve leak is trivial, that's very good news and serious complications including ventricular tachycardia are not expected because the left ventricle is not under strain.. ...Read more

Is heart murmur with mild leak dangerous?

Is heart murmur with mild leak dangerous?

Probably not: It depends on which valve is leaking and how severe the leakage is. But it probably is not dangerous, especially if you feel ok. ...Read more

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

Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?

Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?

More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done. Any recent viral infection? Pericarditis? ...Read more

Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?

Heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. Only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. Does this mean murmur is benign?

Yes: A murmur is just a sound made by blood flowing through your heart and valves. If the Echo is normal, trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation is probably normal for you. Benign means not indicative of pathology or not pathological. You have a benign murmur. ...Read more

ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?

ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?

MVP: Your echocardiogram is not perfectly normal as it shows mild mitral valve prolapse. All other parameters are normal. MVP is very common and very often causes no problems. Nevertheless I recommend periodic follow-up by a cardiologist as the mvp can worsen, cause atrial arrhythmias and atypical chest discomfort. Very often a click can be heard on stethoscope examination of the heart. ...Read more

Does a ?Ventricular septal defect cause a diastolic murmur?

Does a ?Ventricular septal defect cause a diastolic murmur?

Holosystolic: Classically, a vsd results in increased blood flow from left to right ventricle due to pressure differences and results in a holosystolic murmur. Several situations where a diastolic murmur may be heard is 1) large vsd results in aortic cusp sucking into vsd and aortic regurg, 2) very large defect with so much flow to lungs and back to left side with diastolic rumble through mitral valve. ...Read more
