What kind of murmur will be heard in case of pulmonary artery stenosis?

The murmur of pulmonic stenosis is of the systolic ejection type and is best heard at the second left intercostal space.

What is peripheral pulmonic stenosis?

Peripheral pulmonary stenosis is a narrowing in one or more of the branches of the pulmonary arteries. These are the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the lungs. Peripheral pulmonary stenosis is typically a congenital heart defect — a condition a child is born with.

What does a PPS murmur sound like?

Innocent PPS Murmurs When the blood gets pumped from the large artery leaving the heart and enters these smaller pulmonary arteries, there is very often some turbulence, and the blood makes a whooshing noise similar that that of water going through a bend in a garden hose.

This type of murmur typically disappears when the baby reaches 6 to 9 months of age.

What is PPS heart?

Peripheral pulmonary stenosis (PPS) represents a narrowing in one or multiple regions of the branches of the pulmonary arteries. PPS can cause obstruction at the level of the main pulmonary artery, at its bifurcation, or at the more distal branches.

Is pulmonary stenosis life long?

Because pulmonary stenosis can be a lifelong condition, kids who have the defect will need to see a cardiologist (a doctor who specializes in treating heart problems) regularly to make sure the narrowing isn’t getting worse.
