Stenosis Group BodyTalk session:

Friday the 15th of February 2019

11 am Eastern time

Once you register you will be emailed a link to the live session on Zoom.


Spinal Stenosis:

Group session will deal with inflammation, genetics, beliefs, pain, osteoarthritis, and bone spurs to support the body’s innate ability to heal.


and alternate forms of stenosis:


[stĕ-no´sis(pl. steno´ses)

an abnormal narrowing or contraction of a body passage or opening; called also arctationcoarctationand stricture.
aortic stenosis obstruction to the outflow of blood from the left ventricle into the aorta; in the majority of adult cases theetiology is degenerative calcific disease of the valve.
hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis) a cardiomyopathy of unknown cause,in which the left ventricle is hypertrophied and the cavity is small; it is marked by obstruction to left ventricular outflow.
mitral stenosis a narrowing of the left atrioventricular orifice (mitral valvedue to inflammation and scarring; the causeis almost always rheumatic heart disease. Normally the leaflets open with each pulsation of the heart, allowing blood toflow from the left atrium into the left ventricle, and close as the ventricle fills again so that they prevent a backward flow ofblood. In mitral stenosis there is a resultant increase of pressure in the pulmonary artery and hypertrophy of the leftventricle. The usual treatment is surgical replacement of the valve.
pulmonary stenosis (PS) narrowing of the opening between the pulmonary artery and the right ventricle.
pyloric stenosis see pyloric stenosis.
renal artery stenosis narrowing of one or both renal arteries by atherosclerosis or by fibrous dysplasia or hyperplasia, sothat renal function is impaired (see ischemic nephropathy). Increased renin release by the affected kidney causesrenovascular hypertension, and bilateral stenosis may result in chronic renal failure.
spinal stenosis narrowing of the vertebral canal, nerve root canals, or intervertebral foramina of the lumbar spine,caused by encroachment of bone upon the space; symptoms are caused by compression of the cauda equina andinclude pain, paresthesias, and neurogenic claudication. The condition may be either congenital or due to spinaldegeneration.
subaortic stenosis aortic stenosis due to an obstructive lesion in the left ventricle below the aortic valve, causing apressure gradient across the obstruction within the ventricle. See also idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis.
subglottic stenosis stenosis of the trachea below the glottis. A congenital form results in neonatal stridor orlaryngotracheitisoften requiring tracheotomy but resolving with age. An acquired form is caused by repeatedintubations.
tracheal stenosis scarring of the trachea with narrowing, usually as a result of injury from an artificial airway or trauma.
tricuspid stenosis (TS) narrowing or stricture of the tricuspid orifice of the heart, a condition often seen in patients withsevere congestive heart failureusually the result of volume overload and pulmonary hypertension with rightventricular and tricuspid annular dilation.
