• disease
  • In addition, the valve disease may affect more than one valve! (healthtap.com)
  • medical citation needed] In regards to primary and secondary causes they are: Primary causes Rheumatic Myxomatous Ebstein anomaly Endomyocardial fibrosis Endocarditis Traumatic (blunt chest injury) Secondary causes LV dysfunction or valve disease Chronic lung disease Pulmonary thromboembolism Myocardial disease RV ischemia Left to right shunt Carcinoid heart disease In terms of the mechanism of tricuspid insufficiency it involves the expansion of the tricuspid annulus(fibrous rings of heart). (wikipedia.org)
  • A recent study of Parkinson s disease patients who use the medication pergolide shows a possible link between pergolide and injured cardiac valves. (innovations-report.com)
  • Dogs diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension are most commonly small breed and middle aged to older, which is probably reflective of the high prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in patients with chronic, degenerative, mitral valve disease. (vin.com)
  • 50mm and risk factors and connective tissue disease The goal of the operation is the improvement of life expectancy and treatment of heart failure as the consequence of dysfunction of the aortic valve. (wikipedia.org)
  • bicuspid
  • It is then pumped into the left ventricle through the bicuspid valve and into the aorta for systemic circulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • semilunar
  • The contraction of the ventricle begins just prior to AV valves closing and prior to the semilunar valves opening. (wikipedia.org)
  • The sudden tensing of the chordae tendineae and the squeezing of the ventricles against closed semilunar valves, sends blood rushing back toward the atria, and the parachute-like valves catch the rush of blood in their leaflets causing the valve to snap shut. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is caused by the closure of the semilunar valves (the aortic valve and pulmonary valve) at the end of ventricular systole and the beginning of ventricular diastole. (wikipedia.org)
  • leaflets
  • The papillary muscles are attached to the cusps or leaflets of the tricuspid and mitral valves via chordae tendineae (heart strings). (wikipedia.org)
  • The chordae tendineae act a bit like the strings on a parachute, and allow the leaflets of the valve to balloon up into the atria slightly, but not so much as to evert the cusp edges and allow back flow of blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • Procedure
  • We performed repair of the residual VSD, mitral valve replacement, tricuspid valve annuloplasty, and the Maze procedure. (umin.ac.jp)
  • While replacement of the aortic valve is a safe and reproducible procedure it may still be associated with the long-term occurrence of so-called valve-related complications. (wikipedia.org)
  • A repair procedure may not last forever, but in many instances the durability of an aortic valve repair will markedly exceed that of a biological prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The details of the aortic valve repair procedure depend on the possibility of congenital malformation of the valve, the type and degree of secondary deformation, and the existence of an aortic aneurysm. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ultimate goal of the procedure is the restoration of a normal form of the aortic valve, which will then lead to near-normal function and good durability of the repair. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • Extension of infection into the valve ring structure results in perivalvular abscesses, which in turn may extend to cause fistulae, pericarditis, or heart block. (wordpress.com)
  • The likelihood of infection of the repaired aortic valve is much lower compared to what is seen after aortic valve replacement. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart
  • Play media Signs/symptoms of tricuspid insufficiency are generally those of right-sided heart failure, such as ascites and peripheral edema. (wikipedia.org)
  • An echocardiogram will assess the chambers of the heart, as well as, right ventricular pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • I recently had an echocardiogram to rule out infrequent weakness in both arms as being heart related. (medhelp.org)
  • Q:Has the longevity of the use of tissue valves for heart valve replacement been proven yet? (okorder.com)
  • Q:2 leakages in one of the valves in my heart? (okorder.com)
  • Q:How is the heart valves opening/closing is synchronized with the SA-node firing? (okorder.com)
  • The valves are assisted by some fibers attached to the inside of the heart similar to the way a screen door is helped by a spring attached to the door frame. (okorder.com)
  • It's the flowing blood that pushes the valves open or closed as the heart pumps. (okorder.com)
  • The path that the blood follows in the heart as it beats happens to make it so that the valves close two at a time. (okorder.com)
  • The only way they're connected is that the SA node firing is what causes the heart to pump, causing the blood to force the valves open. (okorder.com)
  • Specifically, the sounds reflect the turbulence created when the heart valves snap shut. (wikipedia.org)
  • Normal heart sounds are associated with heart valves closing: The first heart sound, or S1, forms the "lub" of "lub-dub" and is composed of components M1 (mitral valve closure) and T1 (tricuspid valve closure). (wikipedia.org)
  • The second heart sound, or S2, forms the "dub" of "lub-dub" and is composed of components A2 (aortic valve closure) and P2 (pulmonary valve closure). (wikipedia.org)
  • The heart is arrested through cardioplegia, and the form of the aortic valve is carefully analyzed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cor triatriatum dextrum is extremely rare and results from the complete persistence of the right sinus valve of the embryonic heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • papillary
  • It is the pressure created from ventricular contraction that closes the valve, not the papillary muscles themselves. (wikipedia.org)
  • generally
  • In order to best accommodate the complex geometry of the aortic valve these procedures are generally performed through the opened sternum (breastbone). (wikipedia.org)
  • minimal
  • Compared to the results of valve replacement there will be a minimal tendency towards clot formation after aortic valve repair, and anticoagulation is commonly not necessary, thus minimizing the possibility of bleeding complications. (wikipedia.org)
