I went through old posts & found were someone asked for a list of abbreviations. I only did the ones listed in that post for now. If you have others, add them here & I will put them with the others. I will continue to add them as I find them.



Thanks ladies!

There are 4 different kinds of PS so you might want to specify. My son has PVS.

There are four different types of pulmonary stenosis:

•valvar pulmonary stenosis - the valve leaflets are thickened and/or narrowed
•supravalvar pulmonary stenosis - the pulmonary artery just above the pulmonary valve is narrowed
•subvalvar (infundibular) pulmonary stenosis - the muscle under the valve area is thickened, narrowing the outflow tract from the right ventricle
•branch peripheral pulmonic stenosis - the right or left pulmonary artery is narrowed, or both may be narrowed
