What's the chance of having tricuspid stenosis if I have abdominal swelling?

What's the chance of having tricuspid stenosis if I have abdominal swelling?

Echo to answer: Tricuspid stenosis could be a cause for abdominal swelling among many other things. An echo and physical exam will help define the answer. Your doctor will also get a thorough history as tricuspid stenosis rare. ...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

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

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

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 causes spinol stenosis? Could it come from car accidents?

What causes spinol stenosis? Could it come from car accidents?

Many causes: There are many possible causes. It can be congenital from having a small spinal canal, it can be related to trauma, or it can just be degenerative from years of stress put on your back by day to day activities. Some of this can be determined by the appearance of the stenosis but some can't. ...Read more

What is stenosis and what will happen to the person who has it?

Abnormal narrowing: Stenosis is abnormal narrowing. But, "stenosis" tells us nothing about what is narrowing. After all, spinal stenosis is very different from coronary artery stenosis which is different from carotid stenosis which in turn is different from penile artery stenosis. However, last 3 arterial stenoses tend to lead to vascular events eg heart attack, stroke & erectile dysfunction while former causes pain. ...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

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
