What are the most common symptoms? Vladimir Stefanov about them
I continue a series of posts about valvular heart disease. Today I have already uploaded a picture with characteristic blood pressure figures for a patient with aortic insufficiency in my stories.
The heart can exist for a long time, with an inadequately functioning aortic valve, however, as the defect progresses, the chambers of the heart dilate, the rings of the mitral and tricuspid valves stretch, and very severe heart failure develops.
The most common causes of the defect are: ⁃ Bicuspid aortic valve ⁃ Connective tissue dysplasia ⁃ Infective endocarditis ⁃ Aortic aneurysm.
Insufficiency can often be observed with aortic stenosis, when the mobility of the valves and the amplitude of their movement is limited.Diagnosis is by echocardiography. As I have already mentioned, the detection of this defect does not always require an urgent operation.
Observation in dynamics is often enough. Even with severe aortic insufficiency of grade 3, the indications are given in the presence of symptoms and an increase in the size of the left ventricle.
What are the most common symptoms?
Shortness of breath, STENOCARDIA and low diastolic pressure. This is a very characteristic symptom, and it is worthwhile to consult a cardiologist and perform echocardiography.
Remember that nothing in the body just happens – shortness of breath, decreased pressure, swelling of the legs – these are all very important symptoms of trouble. If you or your loved ones have this, this is a reason for further examination.
The vices that I talk about are very common among young and not so people. Good luck and health!
