What are the symptoms of valvular pulmonic stenosis?

Depends. Unless it is moderate to severe, no symptoms are expected. Moderate to severe would result in exercise intolerance, shortness of breath or chest discomfort with exercise.

What are the tests for valvular pulmonic stenosis?

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...

What is the definition or description of: Valvular pulmonic stenosis?

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...

What is the treatment for valvular pulmonic stenosis?

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...

What do you have to do to fix pulmonic stenosis in a young kid?

Depends on severity. Many cases of pulmonary stenosis are mild and require no treatment. For more significant stenosis, a balloon catheter is used to stretch open the valve. Infrequently surgery may be required to repair or replace the valve. Read more...
Valvuloplasty. You can either open it with a catheter and a balloon or do an open operation. Read more...

If I have pulmonic stenosis as a baby, what are the chances that my child will as well?

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...
Rare. The risk of anyone with any form of chd having an affected baby is about 4% (for any form of chd) if both paarents have any form of chd, their risk doubles to 8%.Any pregnancy has a basic 4% risk of some unexpected outcome, like a cleft palate, prematurity or illness & this must be added to your chd risk.Discussions of your risk can be defined by a genetic counselor, ofthe found at children's hosps.

How come we got diastolic murmur in pulmonic stenosis?

Irrelevant. Systolic/diastolic irrelevant. Degree of pulmonic stenosis determined on echo and cardiac cath. Depending on severity, corrective intervention warranted. Read more...

What should I do about my pulmonic stenosis?

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...

What happens if you don't correct pulmonic stenosis in your child?

Depends on Severity. Mild pulmonary stenosis does not require treatment and may never become worse and cause no harm. For significant pulmonary stenosis, the right ventricle must work harder to push blood past the narrowing. Over time the right ventricle thickens and may not work normally. Ultimately there can be insufficient flow through the right side of the heart. 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...

Will my child need a heart transplant if he has pulmonic stenosis?

NO. I have had many patients with pulmonic stenosis and they have not needed transplants. Most people live a perfectly normal life. It depends on the degree of stenosis. Some people may need their valve replaced as adults. A cardiologist can offer more information. 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...
No. There is an exception to every rule, but a heart transplant is not something i associate with isolated pulmonary stenosis. Read more...
