What Is The Difference Between Mitral Regurgitation And Mitral Stenosis
A disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back ...Read more
No: Regurgitation is when the valves don't close properly and blood back flows stenosis is when the opening is narrowed making the outflow reduced.
Different: The mitral valve sits between the left atrium, which receives blood from the lungs, and the left ventricle, which pumps blood to the body. Mitral regurgitation is "backleak" of blood from the left ventricle back to the left atrium. Mitral stenosis is restricted opening of the valve, partially blocking blood flowing from the atrium to the ventricle. Both can exist in the same patient.
Patched Vsd, aortic stenosis mitral regurgitation. Going to dentist w/ prophylaxis. 24 M. What chances do I have of getting endocarditis?
Discuss w/ dentist: This is something that you need to have your dentist and physician discuss to determine what if any precautions must be determined. In all likelihood they will recommend the use of a pre treatment antibiotic but again that must be determined by these health care professionals.
Blocked vs Leaking: Stenosis means the valve does not open enough and restricts the flow of blood thru the valve. Regugitation means the valve leaks when closed and allows blood to flow in reverese. Both cause the hear to have to work harder. Mitral regurge is much more common than stenosis in industrialized nations because antibiotics used to treat strep infections have reduced rheumatic fever rates.
Pulmonary HTN: You're correct. Mitral stenosis produces a diastolic rumble or murmur. However, as mitral stenosis worsens patients develop pulmonary hypertension. This in turn will increase the pressure in the right ventricle which could induce a normal tricuspid valve to leak. This murmur would be systolic.See 1 more doctor answer
Multiple: The pitch is different. Also, each is better heard in a different location in the chest, and the duration of the murmur during the cardiac cycle are different.
See details: One is a persistent rash and the other is not.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
No: No, there is no proof that this worksSee 1 more doctor answer
Better to hear: It positions the tip of the left ventricle closer to the chest wall so that thye stethoscope has a better chance of hearing the low pitched murmur.See 1 more doctor answer
Ms: The murmur becomes more audible in that position.
Hi doc I wann to ask that my fiance has mitral stenosis snd I geeting anngaged since last 1year. I wann to ask that what I have do?
Severity: Severity is key, need to know how bad it is so start by going with her to the doctor if she will let you and ask questions.See 1 more doctor answer
