Valvular pulmonary stenosis; Heart valve pulmonary stenosis; Pulmonary stenosis; Stenosis - pulmonary valve; Balloon valvuloplasty - pulmonary
Bluish coloration to the skin
(cyanosis) in some patients
Poor weight gain or failure to thrive in infants with severe blockage
Shortness of breath
Note: Patients with mild to moderate blockage may not have any symptoms. There may be no symptoms until the disorder is severe. Symptoms, when present, may get worse with exercise or activity.
Signs and tests
The health care provider may hear a heart murmur when listening to your heart using a stethoscope. Murmurs are blowing, whooshing, or rasping sounds heard during a heartbeat.
Tests used to diagnose pulmonary stenosis may include:
Definition Sensorineural deafness is hearing loss that occurs from damage to the inner ear, the nerve that runs from the ear to the brain (auditory nerve), or the brain. Alternative Names Nerve deafness; Hearing loss - sensorineural; Acquired hearing loss; SNHL; Noise-induced hearing loss; NIHL Considerations Symptoms may include: Certain sounds seem too loud Difficulty following conversations when two or more people are talking Difficulty hearing in noisy areas Easier to hear men's voices than women's voices Hard to tell high-pitched sounds (such as "s" or "th") from one another Other people's voices sound mumbled or slurred Problems hearing when there is background noise Other symptoms include: Feeling of being off-balance or dizzy (more common with Meniere's disease and acoustic neuromas ) Ringing or buzzing sound in the ears ( tinnitus ) Common Causes The inner part of the ear contains tiny hair cells (nerve endings), which change sounds into electric signals. The nerves then carry these signals to t...
Lumbar Decompression Surgery is a treatment for spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal). Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal, which may result in pressure on the internal structures. Vague leg pain , numbness, and tingling distributed over the anterior and posterior thighs and calves are brought on, classically, by spinal postures that mechanically compromise the neural canal and foramina (openings for nerves). Less often, this syndrome is precipitated by the increased metabolic and vascular demands of the lower extremities, causing a compromise of neural blood flow. Both these mechanisms can occur at the same time. Degenerative spinal stenosis develops with aging. Everyone begins with a different spinal canal size and shape. With aging, the spinal canal volume decreases. If the original size is large, the aging process may not cause symptoms, but if the original size is small, pressure on the neural elements over time may cause clinical symptoms. Initial variations ...
