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

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

Valve tightening: This is a situation where the mitral valve is tight, producing some restriction to blood flowing through. It can either be something a person is born with or something that is caused by disease. ...Read more

What is spinal stenosis?

Pressure on cord: Imagine an hour glass with wide base and narrow center. Now consider that the spinal cord rests in a wide canal with ample room. But bulging discs, bony overgrowth and thicker ligaments can fill the canal, causing pressure on this sensitive structure and its connecting nerve roots, and leading to painful conditions

What is pyloric stenosis?

What is pyloric stenosis?

Stomach exit blockag: In a baby with hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS), the circular pyloric muscle fibers which regulate the emptying of the stomach become swollen ("muscle-bound") usually between 2 and 8 weeks' age. The pyloric channel becomes blocked, and fluid cannot exit the stomach. The baby has progressive projectile nonbilious vomiting which can cause dehydration and weight loss if uncorrected. ...Read more

What is spinal stenosis?

What is spinal stenosis?

Spinal narrowing: Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal (which contains the spinal cord and nerves) caused by enlargement of the surrounding ligaments and bones. This enlargement creates pressure on the nerves and/or spinal cord and their blood supply resulting usually in back and/or leg pain, especially when the patient is walking upright. The condition usually occurs in older people. ...Read more

What causes spinal stenosis?

What causes spinal stenosis?

Several things: Spinal stenosis can be congenital but is also acquired with aging, or trauma, by either arthritis, herniated discs or even vertebral collapse as people age, which can result in vertebra slipping across each other which can cause stenosis too. It is important to see a neurosurgeon for evaluation, or a orthopedist who specializes in the spine, for full evaluation and treatment, surgery is an option. ...Read more

Can pyloric stenosis return?

Can pyloric stenosis return?

Usually not: Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) in a young baby is treated with an operation called a pyloromyotomy. The hypertrophic circular pyloric muscle fibers are split to open the pylorus & allow the stomach to empty. If done well & thoroughly, HPS should not return. One occasionally hears of a case of recurrent HPS, but often, when looked at closely, it was an inadequate pyloromyotomy to begin with. ...Read more

What causes spinal stenosis?

Born with or develop: Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal leading to compression of nerve tissue. You can be born with it or you can develop it with age related or degenerative changes or acquire it through deformities/instabilities or with disc herniations, synovial cysts or after some spine fractures. ...Read more

Is spinal stenosis inherited?

Is spinal stenosis inherited?

Not really: Spinal stenosis can be caused by many things. But as long as the canal is narrowed, by a variety of things, we call it stenosis. Congenital stenosis means you were born with a narrow canal. Other common causes of stenosis would be arthritis that causes bone and tissue to occupy the canal and make it narrow. Other less common forms of stenosis would tumor and infection. ...Read more

What is mild mitral stenosis?

What is mild mitral stenosis?

Narrowing: Mitral stenosis is a thickening of the mitral valve leaflets. This results in narrowing that restricts blood flow through the valve.

Ms is rated as mild, moderate, or severe. Severe ms usually requires valve surgery.

Mild does not cause symptoms but should be monitored periodically. ...Read more

Does lsi treat spinal stenosis?

Not really: I assume by lsi, you are referring to lumbar spinal injections, also known as epidural steroid injections (esis). These can help temporarily treat some of the pain associated with spinal stenosis but are not a definitive treatment. Check out http://www. Mildprocedure.

What does spinal stenosis affect?

What does spinal stenosis affect?

Leads to pressure: On the the spinal cord (for cervical or thoracic spinal stenosis), and lead to pressure on nerves (in lumbar spinal stenosis). With decrease space where the nerves and spinal cord lives, they can start getting pressure, which leads to some variety of symptoms, depending on if the stenosis is localized in the cervical or lumbar spine, and how significant the stenosis is. See your spinal specialist. ...Read more

How do you treat mitral stenosis?

It depends on cause: Mitral stenosis may be mild and not require specific therapy. For more significant mitral stenosis, treatment is either catheter-based or surgical. Catheter-based therapies involve feeding a balloon-tipped catheter through a large blood vessel in the groin into the heart and across the narrowed mitral valve. The balloon is inflated with relief of stenosis. Surgery involves repair or replacement. ...Read more

What occurs during mitral stenosis?

Restricts blood flow: Mitral stenosis is when the mitral valve fails to open sufficiently. This restricts the blood flow into the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber). This causes the left atrium to dilate and increase pressure in the lungs. This causes shortness of breath, increase BP in lungs, abnormal heart rhythms, and heart failure. ...Read more
