Mitral stenosis
1) Why is there a presystolic accentution of a mitral middiastolic murmur
[hide] due to acceleration of blood flow by atrial systole [/hide]
2) What is the significance of the S2-OS interval
[hide] indirect evidence of left atrial pressure, the higher the pressure, the shorter the interval [/hide]
3)What are the causes of hemoptysis in MS
[hide] pulmonay edema, ruptire of bronchopulmonary varicosities, pulmonary capillary hge 2ry to pulm hypertension, pulmonary infarction [/hide]
What is damped mitral stenosis
[hide] critical MS without murmur - the orifice is so small that the velocity of blood flowing through is too low to produce sound [/hide]
