Systolic heart murmur in infants

Common Questions and Answers about Systolic heart murmur in infants

heart

Avatar m tn The only other heart murmur that follows this pattern is the murmur of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A MVP murmur can be distinguished from a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy murmur by 1) the presence of a mid-systolic click which is virtually diagnostic of MVP, and 2) the fact that hand grip maneuver intensifies the murmur of MVP[citation needed] and diminishes the murmur of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Avatar n tn I was recently diagnosed with a systolic heart murmur. I passed a stressed test,EKG, and wore a halter monitor for 24 hours. My doctor suggested that I take a Beta Blocker if I would feel more comfortable...Bystolic nebivolol 2.5 mg.I can actually fel the murmur and it is alittle unnerving,but I don't want to start a medication if I don't need it. If the murmur is not dangerous I'd rather not take it.
Avatar n tn I was dx with a grade II blowing systolic murmur when I was 24. The MD's do not know why. It radiates to my neck. Please tell me what this means. Is this an "innocent" murmur? I have read that this means I have a stenosis, but all of my echos indicate nothing about that. All of my heart valves leak mildly, with the exception of my aortic valve which now leaks moderately. I am a 48 y/o female.
Avatar n tn hi, im 24 and recently found out i have a systolic heart murmur. i know what a heart murmur is, but im not really sure what it means for me. is it something i should worry about? iv had an ecg done and i havnt got the results yet but i think it looked like it was reg sinus rhythm.
Avatar f tn My 10year old disabled daughter has just been diagnosed with a systolic aortic heart murmur. She has been getting alot of chest pain and has also put on alot of weight. She is 4ft 10" and weighs 10st 7lb. The murmur has never been picked up before when she has been into hospital for opperations. What would have caused this and why the pain and weight gain. What can i expect from the cadiologist?
Avatar n tn Left ventricular systolic function is normal with an ER of 55-60% Left ventricular size is normal. Left atrium is normal in size and function. Mitral valve is normal. Mild mitral regurgitation is present. Aortic valve is trileaflet and appears structurally normal. Mild tricuspid regurgitation is present. About a month after the miscarriage, no murmur was heard during my normal exam. I am now pregnant again (May 08) and the murmur is back.
Avatar n tn My question is, at the age of 22 I was diagnosed with a grade II blowing systolic murmur along the left sternal border, which radiates to the neck. What is making all the noise, and why? Thanks.
Avatar n tn i took my son in for a neonatal follow-up exam....he is 10 months..or 8 months corrected...We got a letter back stating "on cardiac exam, there was a grade ll/Vl systolic murmur heard along the left sternal border which was somewhat harsh" should i be concerned..alarmed SOMEWHAT HARSH is hard to swallow.
Avatar n tn _ Dear Katie: You are describing a systolic murmur. During pregnancy, in you women, the increased blood flow often given these murmurs. They are called flow murmurs, vary with position and respiration, cause no problems and require no treatment. Less often, a systolic murmur can reflect abnormal blood flow patterns due to heart wall defects ("hole in the heart") or heart valve issues (mitral valve prolpase is a common condition in healthy young women).
Avatar m tn For a statistic, the most common abnormal sound finding on cardiac examination is a systolic (pumping phase) murmur, which occurs in 80 to 96 percent of children and in 15 to 44 percent of adults.26 These murmurs can be functional (innocent) or pathological. You state there is no congenital valve disorder.
Avatar n tn THe murmur he heard was that due to blood flow in the heart, not necessarily an abnormality.
Avatar n tn I listened with my stethoscope and immediately heard a loud, probably systolic murmur. Her pulse is normally around 60 and at this time was at 86. Within 2 minutes this murmur was completely gone and she was feeling normal again. She sees her OB GYN and Internist on a regular basis and no one has mentioned a murmur before. Is this likely to be an innocent episode?
Avatar f tn I have a slight heart murmur that I was diagnosed with at birth. I just wanted to know if it could affect me in any way?
Avatar n tn I could be nothing or it could be something. My daughter was born with a heart murmur and she ended up having two holes in her heart. Fortunaly hers were small enough and she did not have to have surgery. I had a friend whos daughter had the same thing and she ended up having to have open heart surgery. They will probably refer them to a pediactic heart specialest where they will do an echocardiagram (sonogram on the heart) to see whats going on and what they need to do about it.
Avatar n tn It means that you have a heart murmur (abnormal sound) with each heart beat. The 2/6 means that it is not terribly loud. Most likely, it is a benign murmur. Usually, if you had a serious valve problem, you would have had problems during pregnancy. The echo should settle the issue.
Avatar f tn heart action was quiet, normal first and second heart sound, and a vibratory systolic murmur heard at the left lower sternal border." He felt at that time (no echo done) that her VSD was completely closed, and her murmur was a common, innocent murmur. At that time I brought up to him the fact that she her heart rate seems to spike quite a bit with activity.
Avatar n tn My symptoms include a diagnosed heart murmur, arrhythmias, mild lightheadness, abnormally growing fingernails (see next question), and pressure in middle of chest when I bend down. Dr. has alluded to, but not confirmed, a heart valve problem. 2) All my fingernails have recently started dipping or curving down. Years ago, I read this could be connected to heart disease, but my doctors don't appear to believe this is related. Have you any information about this subject?

Avatar f tn My five yr old was recently seen by a new provider he is now referring us to pediatric cardiology. The pediatrician states that she has a grade 2/3 systolic heart murmur that changes and has a blowing sound with a S1 split. I am in the medical field as an occupation. I have looked everywhere for info. I am quite confused and overwhelmed. Please help. What is going on with my little girl.
Avatar n tn During my last pregnancy, my doctor heard a heart murmur during a regular checkup. The echocardiogram said the following: left ventricular systolic function is normal with an EF of 55-60%. Left Ventricle size is normal. Left Atrium is normal in size and function. The mitral valve is normal. Mild Mitral regurgitation is present. The aortic valve is trileaflet and appears structurally normal. Mild tricuspid regurgitation is present.
Avatar n tn n hear the heart murmur but then i switched to a different one. she heard the murmur she said it was a squeaking sound.... they sent us to a cardioligist adn they said he has two holes one connecting the upper two chambers and another connecting the two lower chambers.. even though they said that they were small and the top hole is normal in most infants, do you think that the holes will close up? what will happen if they dont? is their any signs of distress that i should look for?
