Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis In Children
EKG& Echocadiogram: • electrocardiogram (ekg): an ekg is used to evaluate the electrical activity of your child’s heart. Echocardiogram: an echocardiogram evaluates the structure and function of your child’s heart using electronically recorded sound waves that produce a moving picture of the heart and heart valves. If your baby has pulmonary valve stenosis, the ultrasound will reveal the malformed pulmonary valve. ...Read more
Valvular pulmonic stenosis is the condition of an abnormal narrowing of the pulmonic valve. The pulmonic valve is between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery and prevents reverse flow back into the right ventricle. Of the valve conditions, PS is rare, but when present can result in problems of the right ventricle which has to work harder to overcome the narrowed ...Read more
Pulmonic Stenosis: Valvular pulmonic stenosis is the condition of an abnormal narrowing of the pulmonic valve. The pulmonic valve is between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery and prevents reverse flow back into the right ventricle. Of the valve conditions, PS is rare, but when present can result in problems of the right ventricle which has to work harder to overcome the narrowed orifice of the PS. ...Read more
It depends: Cardiac catheterization: balloon dilation or valvuloplasty. This is the most common method of repair for pulmonary valve stenosis. Surgical repair surgical separation of valve leaflets that have become fused, allowing the valve leaflets to open properly and surgery to replace the valve. ...Read more
The chances are low: The risk of a mother with congenital heart disease giving birth to a child with congenital heart disease is greater than the for a mother who does not have congenital heart disease, but still only a few percent. The defect in the child is often not the same as the mother. The exception would be syndromes that have known associations with congenital heart disease where the risk is much higher. ...Read more
Pulmonary artery ste:
I depends on your age. If you are older than 18 you should see a cardiologist with specialization in adult congenital disorders. If you know of this diagnosis, presumably you have already seen a specialist.
Depending on how significant the gradient is, you may need to have valve surgery. This can be done by traditional open heart surgery or by transcatheter minimally invasive methods. ...Read more
Pulmonary stenosis: Pulmonary stenosis can be mild, moderate or severe depending on echo findings. If mild or moderate pulmonary stenosis, it can be just watched without intervention. If severe, it will need to have ballon inserted in it and dilate it. If severe ps left untreated, it can cause breathing problems and heart failure. ...Read more
No: Pulmonary stenosis (ps) without other heart problems is relatvely easy to manage. Only a small fraction of children with ps require any sort of repair, which is often possible with a catheter procedure rather than surgery. Heart transplant would not be considered unless there were other more severe cardiac issues in addition to ps. ...Read more
Narrowed heart valve: The aortic valve is between the left ventricle and the aorta. It ensures that blood flows from the heart to the body and not backwards. When the valve is malformed, it does not open fully and the ventricle must work harder to push blood to the body. The medical term for this condition is stenosis. ...Read more
Valve replacement: If aortic valve stenosis is critical will require an aortic valve replacement. ...Read more
The symptoms ranges: From mild to severe. Aortic valve stenosis signs and symptoms typically develop when narrowing of the valve is severe and can include: chest pain (angina) or tightness, feeling faint or fainting with exertion, shortness of breath, especially with exertion, fatigue, especially during times of increased activity, heart palpitations sensations of a rapid, fluttering heartbeat, heart murmur. ...Read more
Pulmonary stenosis: Patients with pulmonary valve stenosis generally receive one of three management strategies, depending upon severity of symptoms and degree of stenosis as well as how abnormal the valve itself is: one, balloon valvuloplasty, consists of opening the valve through a catheter inserted into the heart; two, involves surgical to repair/replace valve; third, continued monitoring until intervention needed. ...Read more
The most important factor is, are you symptomatic? If you have any symptoms, surgical intervention is recommended. 50% of patients who develop symptoms from as will not survive more than 2 years. Other parameters to look at are the mean gradient > 40, velocity > 4 m/s, and aortic valve area <1 cm2.
If any of these are met, you should consider surgery. ...Read more

Can you tell me the management options for a 17 day old neonate with severe (ppg 115mmhg) pulmonary valvular stenosis?
Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...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.
Blood oxygen at 73 no breath very weak started about a month ago and steadily getting worse, going from one room to the next I need to rest to move again, lungs are clear heart fine but in a lot of pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis and four vertebrae bo
Smoker? COPD?: Blood oximetry at 73% is generally not good news. It points to a problem with ur lung or heart. Were u ever a smoker? That cd explain breathing & back problems. U may have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which comes from yrs of smoking. See ur doctor quickly to get diagnosed. While COPD damage cannot be reversed, ur symptoms can b treated w/ inhalers, & oximetry improved. Don't smoke! ...Read more
