Pulmonic Stenosis (Pulmonary Stenosis) pathophysiology
Pulmonic stenosis (pulmonary stenosis) (PS) refers to a dynamic or fixed anatomic obstruction to flow from the right ventricle (RV) to the pulmonary arterial vasculature, which leads to RV pressure overload that in turn causes increased contractility and dilation and results in increased wall stress and compensatory RV hypertrophy
@milaap Although most commonly diagnosed and treated in the pediatric population, individuals with complex congenital heart disease are surviving into adulthood and require ongoing assessment and cardiovascular care. These adults often also have severe heart structural diseases. Some patients with severe, isolated PS may be diagnosed for the first time as adults.
