What is the cause of pulmonary stenosis?
Pulmonary stenosis is almost entirely congenital.
A "Pink Tet" is simply an Acyanotic Tetralogy of Fallot. The same 4 cardiac anomalies are present as in Cyanotic ToF: 1) Pulmonary Stenosis, 2) VSD, 3) Overriding Aorta and 4) Right Ventricular Hypertrophy... but the pulmonary stenosis less severe. Milder pulmonary stenosis means that more blood is getting to the lungs to pick up oxygen. Also, because less stenosis equals less back pressure through the Right to Left shunt and less shunting of oxygen-poor…
There will be higher pressure in the left atrium, when there is mitral stenosis. There will dilatation of the left atrium as well as there will hypertrophy of the left atrium. There will raise in the pulmonary veins. This will lead to pulmonary edema. This will eventually lead to high pressure in pulmonary arteries. That is called as pulmonary hypertension. The pressure in right ventricle will increase. Then the pressure in the right atrium will…
Spinal stenosis is not back pain, but it can be a cause of back pain. Stenosis implies narrowing of the spinal canal because of thickened pedicles, or hypertrophied ligaments, or a disk bulge, or a tumor, etc. Sometimes this can cause pain if it aggravates pain-generating structures within or around the spinal canal.
It is possible for spinal stenosis to cause or trigger numbness and headache, especially if the spinal problems are in the upper body. Anyone with these symptoms should seek the immediate help of a doctor however, because spinal stenosis is not the only potential cause for these symptoms. For appropriate diagnosis, treatment and management of headache disorders and Migraine, please seek the help of a board certified headache and Migraine specialist.
Yes it is. A congenital malformation to be precise consisting of Pulmonary Stenosis: obstruction of the pulmonary outflow from the right ventricle;Narrowed pulmonary valve Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD): There is a shunt in between the ventricles; a hole on the septum so to speak. Dextroposition of the Aorta with septaloverride: basically the aorta is displaced Right Ventricular Hypertrophy: thickening of the Right Ventricular Wall
