Aortic Valve Stenosis: Tests and Diagnosis

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Jaipur
Aortic Valve Stenosis: Tests and Diagnosis

Aortic valve stenosis is a heart condition in which the valve to the biggest artery- the one which provides oxygen-rich blood to our body, called aorta, is narrowed. This prevents the valve from opening fully, obstructing the blood flow from your heart into your body.

When the aortic valve doesn’t open, your heart needs to work harder to pump blood to your body making the heart muscle weak. If left undiagnosed aortic stenosis is fatal.

Symptoms

These symptoms should spur you on to seek medical care right away:

  1. Chest pain or tightness

  2. Feeling faint with exertion

  3. Shortness of breath

  4. Fatigue after increased activity

  5. Heart palpitations — rapid, fluttering heartbeat

  6. Heart murmur

The disorder doesn’t produce symptoms right away and is usually diagnosed during routine physical exams when your doctor listens to your heart with a stethoscope. He usually hears a heart murmur resulting from turbulent blood flow through the narrowed aortic valve.

Diagnostic Tests

There are other ways to diagnose aortic valve stenosis and gauge the severity of the problem, like:

  1. Echocardiogram – This produces an image of your heart using sound. It is the primary test to diagnose a heart valve problem. Sound waves are directed at your heart here and these bounce off your heart and are processed electronically to provide images of your heart. This test helps your doctor check diagnose aortic valve stenosis and its severity plus chalk out a treatment plan.

  2. Electrocardiogram (ECG) –  In this test, patches with electrodes are attached to your chest to measure electrical impulses given out by your heart. These are then recorded as waves on a monitor and printed on paper. Though this can’t diagnose aortic stenosis directly, it can tell you that the left ventricle in your heart is thickened which normally happens due to aortic stenosis.

  3. Chest X-ray – This allows the doctor to see the shape and size of your heart directly. If the left ventricle is thickened, it points to aortic stenosis. It also helps doctor check the lungs. Aortic stenosis leads to fluid and blood in the lungs, causing congestion.

  4. Exercise Tests – Exercise is used to increase your heart rate and make your heart work harder. This test is done to see how your heart reacts to exertion. Exercise test may be contraindicated in severe AS. MRI and X ray not much helpful to diagnose AS. 

  5. Computerised Tomography (CT) Scan –  This means a series of X-rays to create images of your heart and observes the heart valves. CT is helpful in planning for nonsurgical valve replacement. Cardiac Catheterisation is usually needed prior to surgery.

  6. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) –  This uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create images of your heart and valves.

Once aortic valve stenosis is confirmed, you may have to go in for monitoring or heart valve surgery according to your doctor’s advice. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Know More About Liposuction

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi

Hello, everyone. I am Dr Anubhav Gupta and I am a plastic surgeon at Sir Gangaram Hospital.

Today I am going to answer few important questions related to the technique of Liposuction.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a technique in which we inject medicated fluid in the body of a person and after then we take out the fat through suction from the body.

Is Liposuction safe?

Liposuction is a very safe procedure.

Who is a good candidate for Liposuction?

If people come to me for reducing their weight to 80-100 kgs, I refuse for Liposuction, as they are not suitable for this treatment. But people who have localized areas or difficult areas which they are not able to reduce that particular fat part inspite of following a proper diet and regular exercise, they are appropriate candidates. The generalised obesity people are not suitable for Liposuction. This treatment is suitable for such areas of the body which needs to be controlled and sculpted.

What is the duration of a treatment?

Liposuction depends on the number of areas we are treating. For example- Liposuction od abdominal area can be done in 3 hrs, Liposuction of thighs can be done in 1-2 hrs. Hence the treatment duration depends on the number of areas we are treating.

How long is the recovery period?

The recovery period of one area is about 24-48 hours. But if the Liposuction is done in 2-3 areas then you may suffer from pain for 2-3 days. There may occur some bruising which can last for 17-18 days.

Is there any risk or side effects?

If the Liposuction is done in a reputed Hospital through a well-experienced surgeon, then the risks are minimal. There are definitely certain minimal risks after any surgery, which is normal. Common side effect we see in patients after Liposuction is the collection of fluid which is called Seroma which is seen in less than 5% o our cases. apart from this, Bruising may occur for some period. But excluding these issues, it is quite safe if it is done by the well- an experienced or a well-trained surgeon in a controlled environment and in a healthy manner.

If you have any queries regarding Liposuction, You can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

It is not alone dairy product but any fatty food like junk food will aggravate pco problems. Hence it is better to use it sensibly and also exercise regularly to burn the calories rather than completely avoiding it.

Hello. As homoeopathy has wide range of medication, will need a detailed history of yours in regard to your nature, behaviour, likings, disliking, thermal reaction, appetite, thirst, etc. Management: increase your iron intake. The best sources of iron come from animal products - mainly red meat. However, we get a good proportion of iron from non-animal sources too. Iron sources include: red meat and offal - eg, beef, lamb, pork, kidneys, liver, heart, black pudding (note pregnant women should avoid liver). Fish and shellfish. Eggs. Cereal and cereal products. Nuts and seeds - eg, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, pecans, walnuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pine nuts. Green leafy vegetables - eg, broccoli, spinach, watercress, kale. Beans and pulses - eg, baked beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas, black-eyed beans, kidney beans. Dried fruit - eg, raisins, apricots, prunes, currants, figs. Miscellaneous - eg, plain (dark) chocolate, cocoa powder, mango chutney. Meantime, prescribing you patent medicine - schwabe's millefolium pentarkan and biocombination- 1 - both thrice daily for a month. Revert me back after a month. Take care!

Gas and Bloating. Constipation. Round Ligament Pain– Round ligament pain can occur during second trimester and can cause a sharp pain in the abdomen on either or both sides. The pain is caused by the stretching of the ligament that supports the uterus as the uterus grows. Consult your family doctor for further evaluation of your pain.

Dear user. In Indian context, loosing virginity is breaking of the HYMN. The hymen is a membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. It forms part of the vulva, or external genitalia, and is similar in structure to the vagina. The hymen does not seem to have a specific physiological function or purpose. The hymn could break due to cycling, stretching exercises, swimming etc. Therefore, don't worry. Take care.

Hi, the main reason for nipple pain is because of hormonal imbalance estrogen and progesterone and as you said you are having irregular periods this needs to be corrected first, can you write back to me in detail since how long are you suffering from PCOD and nature and duration of your periods etc. and you are telling the pain to be on 15th day means during ovulation during this time also there will be more hormonal changes which causes you the pain. Please write back to me in detail.

Dear lybrate-user, it is difficult to pinpoint why you wd be having this pain. May be the doctor would advise you certain tests and painkillers also. One can safely start walks any time and exercises from 14 weeks onwards as by this time the body strength starts recovering and sleepiness also lessens.

सेक्स के वक्त यदि महिलाएं 'यह' करें तो चरम सुख देते हैं पुरुष -- BEST Sex problem Counsellor & Sex Therapist in ALLAH...
क्या सेक्स के वक्त आप अपने पार्टनर को पूरी खुशी नहीं दे पाती हैं? क्या आपको पता है मर्दों के वो नाजुक अंगस्थल जहां छूने से वे हो जाते हैं चरम सुख देने को बेताब? पुरुषों के 10 ऐसे संवेदनशील अंग, जहां पर हल्का-सा स्पर्श भी उन्हें रोमांचित कर देता है..-------नेक- यहां हल्की-सी छुअन भी उनके शरीर में झनझनाहट पैदा कर सकती है। अगली बार उनकी गर्दन पर गर्म सांसे फेंकते हुए किस करिए, उसके बाद का अहसास आप भूल नहीं पाएंगी। कान कान में ही फुसफुसाने और उसको चूमने तक ही सीमित न रहें, बल्कि कान के पीछे का हिस्सा भी काफी संवेदनशील होता है। उनके कान के टॉप को अपने दांतों से हल्का-सा काटें और वहां पर जोर-जोर से सांसे लें। सेक्स का मजा दोगुना हो जाएगा। हिप मर्दों के हिप काफी सेंसिटिव होते हैं। जब वे आपके उपर छाए हों, या जब भी मौका मिले, उनके हिप्स को जरूर ध्यान में रखें। वहां पर हल्का-सा मसाज भी पुरुषों को बहुत उत्तेजित करता है। त्वचा स्किन मर्दों को उत्तेजित करने में एक महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाती है। सेक्स में सबसे ज्यादा यही अंग शामिल रहता है। त्वचा को चूमने, उसे रगड़ने से ब्लड सर्कुलेशन तेज हो जाती है और पुरुषों को उत्तेजित होने में मदद मिलती है। तो अगली बार उन हसीन लम्हों के लिए पूरी तैयारी करके जाइए। एड़‍िया- अपने पार्टनर के पैरों का हल्का-सा मसाज करें, यह न सिर्फ उन्हें जोश दिलाएगा, बल्कि उनकी परफॉर्मेंस को भी कई गुना बढ़ाने में मदद करेगा। और वैसे भी, जब वह ऑफिस से थक-हार कर घर आएंगे, तो एक हल्का सा फुट मसाज उनके लिए बड़ी राहत की वजह बनेगा। फिर तो आराम से खेलिए प्यार वाला खेल। जीभ यह बताने की जरूरत नहीं है कि एक लंबा और प्यारा-सा किस सेक्स के दौरान कितना जरूरी होता है। यह आपके पार्टनर को उत्तेजित करने का सबसे आसान तरीका है। हां, किस करते वक्त यह याद रखें कि हर मूव के बाद इसमें कुछ नयापन हो। पहले हल्का किस, फिर धीरे-धीरे गहरे किस करते रहना चाहिए। और हां, इस दौरान अपनी जीभ का जमकर इस्तेमाल करें। होंठ जैसा कि हमने पहले ही कहा, किस करना प्यार में तड़का लगाने का सबसे कारगर तरीका है। आप अपने पार्टनर के होठों को चूसकर, उन्हें चूमकर उन्हें काफी उत्तेजित कर सकते हैं। उसके बाद तो सेक्स के खूबसूरत अहसास के लिए तैयार रहिए। जांघों का भीतरी हिस्सा यह आपके पार्टनर के लिंग के पास का सबसे करीबी हिस्सा होता है, और यहां हल्की-सी छुअन भी काफी जोश दिला सकती है। तो अगली बार एक कमाल के सेक्स अनुभव के लिए तैयार रहिए। चेहरा क्या आपने कभी नोटिस किया है कि जब आप अपने पार्टनर के चेहरे को छूती हैं, तो उसके चेहरे पर कितनी चमक आ जाती है? मर्दों को लड़कियों द्वारा चेहरा छूना बहुत ही अच्छा लगता है।
