Percutaneous transcatheter balloon valvuloplasty for bioprosthetic tricuspid valve stenosis
The doctors diagnosed that Finley had pulmonary valve stenosis
, a congenital heart defect.
Strong performance results from both studies continue to reinforce this therapy as a less-invasive treatment alternative for patients with severe aortic valve stenosis
who are considered to be at high risk for surgical valve replacement, according to Boston Scientific bigwigs.

approximately 70,000 heart valve procedures are performed for mitral valve stenosis
He still has pulmonary valve stenosis
and is being monitored with regular echo heart scans, but for now that is something we won't have to worry about for a couple of years.
Aortic valve stenosis
is most often due to age-related degeneration or hardening (calcification) of the aortic valve, leading to progressive narrowing (stenosis) or leakage - changes which compromise valve function and impair normal blood flow through the heart.
Mitral valve stenosis
can cause tiredness and shortness of breath, among other problems.
The current study indicates that the impact of rheumatic myocarditis (myocardial factor) on subclinical left ventricular dysfunction is important, and this should be taken into the consideration when patients with mild-moderate mitral valve stenosis
are referred for balloon mitral valvuloplasty.
In 2004, aortic valve stenosis
of a tricuspid valve was diagnosed in a 73-year-old man.
We report a case of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy occurring in a 70-year-old female following elective coronary artery bypass surgery and bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement for severe aortic valve stenosis
(aortic valve area of 0.
Prior to their operations, both of the patients suffered from severe aortic valve stenosis
, a disorder of the heart valves in which the opening of the aortic valve gets narrow.
