can they put in a stent to open it/keep it open? Or is it valve stenosis?



"Defending your own life when in immediate danger to me is a basic right of each person. " Lemon Drop 11/17/2023 03:10 pm

Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) Private citizens have the right under the Second Amendment to possess an ordinary type of weapon and use it for lawful, historically established situations such as self-defense in a home, even when there is no relationship to a local militia.

"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner." Right to Keep and Bear Arms: Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-seventh Congress, Second Session. U.S. Government Printing Office. 1982. Digitized September 30, 2008.

From the NYSRPA v Bruen "Today, we decline to adopt that two-part approach. . . . Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history."

Usually develops over decades but once it gets critically tight it needs to be fixed.
Symptoms that are harbingers of disaster are chest pain, congestive heart failure and passing out. I don’t know the current treatment but back when I was practicing replacement with an artificial valve was usually needed.

Good luck

Good luck.

My daughter has this in her aortic valve from having far too many central lines placed. Her docs say there is nothing they can do about it because the valve replacement can’t be done on her. She has had it for over 30 years. One day it will totally occlude and she will drop dead.

Aortic stenosis is the one valve abnormality that significantly impacts your survival. Imagine your heart trying to push blood through a doorway that is stuck in a mostly-closed position. Every day; every beat.

If your docs think you are a surgical candidate, you should consider it.

I don’t mean to be alarmist, and it’s always your decision, Sam. It’s a major surgery, but if successful, should improve the length and quality of your life.

Sam- I don't have any medical background or training to offer advice. You did get good input from others here. I do hope you get information, guidance and support from specialists needed to make the best decision possible and do wish for you an excellent outcome too.
