In addition, post-stenotic dilatation of the pulmonary artery can often be appreciated . Myxomatous, fused valve leaflets are seen in the less common dysplastic form of PS, and, in this disorder, the main pulmonary artery is not dilated. A challenge for the echocardiographer is to measure the severity of subvalvular dynamic obstruction that often accompanies valvular PS, due to secondary infundibular hypertrophy, which is characterized by a late-peaking jet similar to that of dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction.
2 (a) Continuous wave Doppler in the parasternal short axis view reveals a peak gradient across pulmonary valve of 61 mm Hg. (b) Imaging in subcostal plane reveal significantly higher Doppler gradient, measuring 89 mm Hg. Note superimposed late peaking gradient which measures 25 mm Hg (arrow), representing dynamic outflow obstruction due to infundibular hypertrophy. (Courtesy of Dr. ) 28 Adult Congenital Heart Disease cases of the uncommon condition, carcinoid syndrome, usually with associated involvement of the tricuspid valve.
In the case of double-chambered right ventricle, the site of the obstructing muscle bands may vary greatly in location and in severity of obstruction . They result in a division of the right ventricle into high- and low-pressure chambers and therefore may be difficult to diagnose accurately. The severity of subvalvular PS tends to increase with time, and therefore may be first discovered during adulthood when symptoms manifest . The pathophysiology is that of a dynamic obstruction to right ventricular outflow, rather than a fixed obstruction as in valvular PS.
