Avatar f tn If I would have an opening somewhere in the heart or a valve it could cause serious problems. All this relates to the fact that I had a bad experience with all the staff including the dentist about 8 years ago. I had three root canals done, one cap stayed on even though it was never at the right level. Ten days after my root canal I could not chew a soft shrimp because I had pain from the root area. Pain like a cavity/nerve pain.
Avatar f tn Anticoagulant medications prevent blood clots, especially in patients who have heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation or have had heart valve surgery and have a replacement valve made of metallic material". source Mayo Clinic. I think this was explained on another thread. Mayo Clinic one of the leading hospital for valve problems.
Avatar m tn Not all heart surgery is bypass. Heart Valve repairs and replacements also require open heart surgery and use of heart lung machine.
Avatar n tn I should add to the above that many years ago I was diaognosed with a bad heart valve and about 7 years ago, suffered a mild stroke that left me with short term memory problems......are these connected to the above problems as well?
Avatar f tn Thats where they will find out how bad your valve is leaking and if your valve is leaking get it fix!!! Because down the road it is hard on your heart and just taknig beta- blockers twice a day isn't going to help it is like putting a bandage on your heart!! Get fix or you will be sorry and have to have a new heart!!
967168 tn?1477584489 because one time my echo will point towards HOCM and the next will be fine and not even show valve problems. I just had a new echo done and am going to see Dr. Craig Asher @ CC in Weston FL in the fall for another opinion, but would appreciate any info beforehand.
Avatar m tn In 2011 I had open-heart surgery and got my aortic root and aortic valve replaced by a porcine valve. This coming summer I am to get my mitral valve replaced by another porcine valve. Does anyone else have Rheumatic heart disease? If so, how many surgeries have you had? Is it any better/worse than the first open-heart surgery? I am so scared for this coming up surgery.
Avatar m tn ll usually need surgery to replace the valve. Left unchecked, aortic valve stenosis can lead to serious heart problems. Many patients with aortic valve disease are asymptomatic (have no symptoms), even when the stenosis (narrowing) is severe.
Avatar f tn hi just thought i would say my daughter was born with heart defects and suffers from pulmonary valve stenosis she is 1 on oct 7 and was born 3 months early. I have heard of noonans syndrome and at the clinic we attend there are children with this condition. cardiac consultants are brilliant and will advice on what to do, look out for and when / if she needs surgery. Good luck and I hope your lo is doing well despite this shock you both have to deal with.
Avatar n tn t function properly since she was 5 yrs old and now she is around 60 yrs old now the the doctors advising to take open heart i.e. heart valve replacement operation as her other valve is now little bit damaged due to excessive work as doctors said bu some doctors say it is need not to be operated because it is childhood disease. My question is operation is required or not . If yes is it ok for operation bcause now she is 60 but she doesn't any problems with blood pressure and sugar.
Avatar f tn I am stress about my diagnosis yesterday. My doctor told me my heart wasn't normal, that it was leaking. I was stunned & didn't have my witts about me for questions. My carotid arteries were fine-Thank God, but not sure what this leaking is. He wants to have another ultrasound in six months. Is all leaking mitro valve? I am so foreign to all this please excuse my nivaity. He said there was possible surgery down the road----what kind would this be?
Avatar m tn I have an 11 yr. Old which Tzu with a bad heart valve. He has good kidney and liver function. Been to the vet ...started a regimen of Vetmedin and Enalapril for more than a week now. This am he had difficulty using his back legs and balance when he woke up and got off his pillow.he was better after a few minutes. He also presents difficulty in evacuating his bowels. I started him on a regimen of Metamucil with somewhat acceptable results.
Avatar m tn only you can make this decision..I went thru the same doubt that you are, but between taking the medication and having other surgery in 15 years I chose to take the medication..
Avatar f tn The bicuspid valve is not replaced until there is evidence that valve narrowing is causing problems (elevated pressures on an ultrasound of the heart for example) or when symptoms develop that can be attributed to the narrowed valve. A nuclear stress test only rules out coronary artery blockages and does not show if there is significant aortic valve problems.
Avatar f tn To my reason to answer you post, I had a leaky mitral heart valve and it was repaired last November, with open heart surgery. In the case of a leaky mitral valve the high pressure generated by the ventricle chamber passes back through the valve into the atrial chamber, right side in this case.
Avatar f tn Hi--Good for you for being proactive with your health! A couple of suggestions-- I'd ask for a copy of the summary of the CT scan of your chest, too. It's a good idea to be sure to tell any doctors that your see about the sclerosis of the valve and also the mild regurgitations, so they are aware.
Avatar f tn Elevated pressure in heart chambers can sometimes be seen with an echo. (by looking i.e. at bulging of heart walls). Perhaps that is what your doctor means? Your question can not be answered with the little info you provide. Mitral valve prolapse is observed in many people and does normally not cause problems. Swollen ankles can be caused my many things. Is the arrhythmia detected by yourself or also by your doctor? There are a lot of different types of arrhythmia, some are quite harmless.
