Dear lybrate-user Long QT syndrome is different than elongated QT on ecg. QT elongation can be due to drugs, low potassium and other factors which can be corrected. Long QT syndrome is mainly genetic and a lot of genetic mutation identification tests are available. Many times it is congenital (By birth).

Aortic Valve Stenosis - How Can It Be Treated?

MBBS, Master of Surgery - General Surgery, Magistrar Chirurgiae (Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Aortic Valve Stenosis - How Can It Be Treated?

The heart is a wonderfully designed pump that takes care of proper functioning of the body. There are two separate channels, through which pure and impure blood flows through. Blood flow in these two designated networks is one-sided completely and controlled by valves. There are 2 sets of valves as below:

  1. Aortic and pulmonary valves which controls blood flow from the ventricles to the aorta and to the lungs respectively
  2. The mitral and tricuspid valves control blood flow from the atria (upper chambers) to the ventricles (lower chambers).

These valves are meant to be elastic and fibrous and open and close freely to allow for blood flow. Due to various reasons, they can become stenosed (hard and narrow) and depending on which valve is affected, complications arise accordingly.

The aortic valve is extremely important in that its proper functioning ensures that pure, oxygenated blood reaches various parts of the body. Due to various reasons, this valve may not open and/or close properly. Some causes include calcium deposits, advanced age, rheumatic fever, endocarditis, etc. With age or deposits, the valve opening can become narrow and reduce the amount of blood flowing into the aorta. The following symptoms and complications arise out of this.

  1. The heart needs to put extra pressure to pump out blood into the aorta
  2. The left ventricle therefore grows thicker
  3. The symptoms will take a long time to manifest, as the heart will work on alternate measures, but after a certain point, symptoms will show up including chest pain, fatigue with minimal exertion, shortness of breath, and racing heartbeats.
  4. As the heart has its own compensating mechanisms, symptoms show up when the condition is much serious. Therefore, onset of these symptoms requires immediate medical attention.

Diagnosis: This could be diagnosed with routine medical exam when the heart is being checked or it could only be diagnosed when the symptoms are seen as above. Treatment is easier in the earlier case, and requires more rigorous attention.

Management: If the stenosis is mild and was detected on routine exam, then it needs to be monitored periodically. Surgery is usually not done, unless it is very severe. However, preventive measures can be taken including

  1. Avoiding over-exertion
  2. Heart-healthy diet can be taken to prevent further damage
  3. Reduce sodium intake
  4. Quit smoking

If the stenosis is severe, then surgery is the only definitive treatment measure. Valve surgery can be either a

  1. Balloon valvuloplasty – the valve opening is enlarged
  2. Replacement – valve replacement is usually done as an open heart surgery.

Though aortic stenosis is a serious condition, it is also rare and can be managed by adopting an overall healthy lifestyle.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 52 years and have shoulder pain and light chest pain since one week. Any advice please.

I am 52 years and have shoulder pain and light chest pain since one week. Any advice please.
Could you describe the chest pain : Location? Is it sharp localized or heaviness with pressure. Does it also go to the shoulder, jaw or back. Do you have any burning in chest or regurgitation of food. Do you also have breathlessness? When do you get pain. What relieves the pain. It is very important to rule out chest pain due to heart problem by answering the above questions and by doing an ECG. Bone and joint problems can wait. Also, do you have history of any heart disease, diabetes, increased cholesterol, family history of any of these diseases. Do you smoke,drink or use tobacco? What is/was your occupation?

Hello, I am getting pain in the left chest part. I have taken diagnosis. In one hospital they diagnosed ECG, 2D ECHO mentioned as infection in heart valve and it's not in serious condition and prescribed to take pentids 400 tab till 40y. In another hospital did same diagnosis and mentioned me as blood flow was leaking in reverse direction. I am in confusion state. Still I am getting pain in my chest. Could you please clarify me about condition. Thanks Ramamurthy.

Hello, I am getting pain in the left chest part. I have taken diagnosis. In one hospital they diagnosed ECG, 2D ECHO ...
The function of heart valve is to stop the blood coming back after they pump it ahead. When valve has problems it doea not funtion 100% and some amount of blood comes back called regurgitation. This increases the load on the chambers of heart causing pain whenever you do exertion as during that heart have to do more pumping and more blood comes back... Now for the Treatment part i will suggest you homoeopathic treatment it can cure these kind of troubles depending on the severity and duration of treatment... As this is not a simple complaint better take treatment with proper consultation only.

What are the symptoms of high blood pressure? What is the normal blood pressure of a person about 35- 36 years old male?

MD - General Medicine, PG Diploma Clinical Cardiology

What are the symptoms of high blood pressure? What is the normal blood pressure of a person about 35- 36 years old male?
Hypertension is defined as blood pressure higher than 140 over 90 mmHg (millimeters of mercury). A diagnosis of hypertension may be made when one or both readings are high: systolic (the pressure as the heart pumps blood around the body), given first; or diastolic (pressure as the heart relaxes and refills with blood), given second. Modern lifestyle factors are responsible for a growing burden of hypertension: physical inactivity, salt-rich diets with processed and fatty foods, and alcohol and tobacco use. High blood pressure can also be secondary to other conditions - kidney disease, for example - and can be associated with some medications. Hypertension itself does not cause symptoms but in the long-term leads to complications caused by narrowing of blood vessels. Doctors diagnose high blood pressure over a number of visits using a sphygmomanometer, which involves applying an inflatable cuff to the upper arm. Lifestyle measures are used first to treat high blood pressure, including salt restriction and other dietary changes, moderation of alcohol, and stress reduction. One or more drugs from a number of different classes may be used for treatment.

Cholesterol 176 is ok. Smoking. Is a problem, reduce it to minimum. Smoking damages arteries and lungs, doesn't affect cholesterol.
