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.
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)
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.
of the left atrioventricular orifice
to inflammation and scarring; the cause
is 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
In mitral stenosis there
is a resultant increase
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.
renal artery stenosis narrowing
or both renal arteries
or by fibrous dysplasia
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
, often requiring tracheotomy but resolving with age.
An acquired form
tracheal stenosis scarring of the trachea with narrowing, usually as a result of injury from an artificial airway or trauma.
tricuspid stenosis (TS) narrowing
of the tricuspid orifice
of the heart,
a condition often seen
in patients withsevere congestive heart failure
, usually the result
of volume overload and pulmonary hypertension with rightventricular and tricuspid annular dilation.
