Heart valves grown from womb fluid cells

Common Questions and Answers about Heart valves grown from womb fluid cells


1816154 tn?1463430018 s bronchials are trying to collapsing a little bit more. Her heart valves are so bad that she needs surgery but none of the doctors are willing to do anything of any type of surgery because she is very prone to infections even just a little cold and the next day she gets it. I feel like my mom is just a ticking time bomb... My kids are close to their grandma. I know that my mommy don't have much time with us, I just have a feeling....

1652617 tn?1301853701 tricuspid,pulmonic,mitral and aortic valve. Their main purpose is to maintain unimpeded forward flow through the heart and from the heart into the major blood vessels connected to the heart, the pulmonary artery and the aorta. As a result of a number of disease processes, both acquired and congenital, any one of the four heart valves may malfunction and result in either stenosis (impeded forward flow) and/or backward flow (regurgitation).
Avatar m tn Typically, fluid on the lungs means left side heart failure and fluid in the ankles and legs means right side heart failure. Shortness of breath indicates problems with the heart valves. The heart muscle may have the good strength, but what about the valves? What is your EF? Have you had an echocardiogram to look at and listen to the valves?
Avatar f tn A thyroid cyst is commonly caused by a nodule which is bleeding or degenerating (breaking down). The cause of most thyroid nodules are unknown. Known causes of thyroid nodules include Hashimoto's thyroiditis and iodine deficiency. Elevated bilirubin could be due to hemolytic anaemia. Most of the causes of hemolytic anaemia are also listed causes of neutropenia (low neutrophils) which in turn lowers WBC. Are your symptoms related? Maybe, maybe not.
Avatar n tn The widest point of the aorta had grown from 5.3mm to 6.2mm in 5 days. My partner and I have no sign or immediate history of a connective tissue disorder or BAV. The baby does not have a bicuspid vavle either. Has anyone evercome across anything like this? My cardiologist said this is very rare to see in utero. I have another scan next week to see how much it has grown.
Avatar m tn Then she was sent to lung clinic for one week where they tested the fluid, there is no sign of tuberculosis. But Doctor said she may has some kind of fluid in her heart, from there she was requested to transfer to the Heart hospital where specialize on heart treatment since last week Friday 7/17/09. In this case and with the symptom that she has, is there any possible to have a serious heart problem and or is there any treatment can be treated if she has diagnostic fluid in her heart.
Avatar f tn An echocardiogram uses the same machine Doctors use to see a baby developing in the womb and listening to the babys heart beat. You basically lay on your side and the Doctor runs a small hand held probe overy your chest, using gel, and this gives images on the monitor. It allows many things to be checked and is a great tool for investigating heart problems. It will show the dimensions of your heart, including the internal chamber volumes.
Avatar f tn The coronary arteries are not the vessels which actually feed the heart with blood to be pumped through the valves and through the body. Your heart would not receive any more blood into the chambers with the artery being opened up. Your heart may simply be working more efficiently and pumping more blood with each cycle. More likely the valves had problems before but wasn't discovered or the condition was very mild then. Are the valves leaking mild/moderate or severe?
Avatar m tn I recently found out that my (not very close) friend has a heart defect - a missing valve. He lives a normal life, although he's not recommended to do sports or some hard chores. I'm very worried about him, since I don't know anything about heart diseases, so I decided to ask you for any information about this kind of disease and what could be the major problems it can cause. Will he need an obligatory operation after some time? How dangerous it is?
447939 tn?1235061943 When there is cardiac arrest, the blood pressure and pulse is very low (sometimes referred to as a heart attack). With an MI (heart attack, damaged heart cells) the blood pressure would be high and could also cause a stroke.
Avatar n tn Is stem cell research to the point where new heart valves can be grown or old ones repaired? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/982687'>Left Ventricular Hypertrophy</a>.
Avatar n tn That kind of therapy is not readily available yet. New hearts can be grown using cells from our own body, reprogrammed to become whatever the lab tells it. Complete working rabbit/mice hearts have been grown in a lab, but I don't think human ones have yet. However, I believe they will be in the next ten years. This kind of research takes a long time because they have to see how the hearts behave relatively long term.
Avatar m tn chamber filling), and repolarization (discharging...contractility of chamber) heart cells. In arterial smooth muscle cells, intracellular calcium paradoxically controls both contraction and relaxation.... The mechanisms by which calcium can differentially regulate diverse physiological responses within a single cell remain unresolved.... Calcium-dependent relaxation is mediated by local calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum.
Avatar f tn I thought I had a respiratory problem with symptoms of a dry cough, but it turned out I had had a silent heart attack and lung edema, and there was some damage to the heart cells (hypokenisis...impaired heart wall movement). Treatment revitalized the heart cells and the heart is now pumping adequately. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn The lumbar puncture showed white blood cells, red blood cells, and an abnormal amount of glucose in the spinal fluid. The white cells of a normal healthy person would number 0-3, but Taylor had over 30 white blood cells in her spinal fluid sample. They called it aeseptic meningitis. She was dizzy, had headaches, and a fever. She's home and still has low grade fevers, but she will see an infectious disease specialist and a pediatric rheumatologist.
Avatar f tn The really neat thing about an echo- is to watch your heart pumping/valves working....if the tech is talkative she/he might explain what they are seeing .
Avatar n tn Sometimes, as in my case, five years ago I had ischemiac (lack of blood flow) from occluded vessels and a silent heart attack. The heart cells were stunned and impaired the contractions (EF 13-29%). Stenting a blocked artery provided sufficient blood flow and contractions returned to a normal EF 59%. Also, the left ventricle was enlarged and medication has returned the LV to normal dimensions.
Avatar n tn Dear emery, It is possible that mechanical heart valves can cause a 'hemolysis' or destruction of red blood cells leading to anemia and jaundice. Tis diagnosis is usually made only after other potential causes have been excluded. Unfortunately the only treatment is replacement of the mechanical valve with a tissue valve. A third open heart surgey, while presenting some challenges, is not unusual here at the Cleveland Clinic.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctors and specialists, my father has been diagnosed with heart valves (2nos) malfunctioned since early of year 2008. And he has been under medication (Warfarin) until now while waiting for the valve replacement operation which supposed to be by early of August 2010. Unfortunately, he has been dignosed with Colon cancer on early of July 2010, where the tumor size is about 2~3cm in diameter, 15cm from the anal.
