What is Pulmonary Stenosis?
Pulmonary stenosis, or pulmonic stenosis, is a reduced blood flow from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery due to a problem with or near the pulmonary valve. It is most often a congenital defect.
Pulmonic stenosis is often initially diagnosed by auscultation during which a murmur is heard. Other tests will include EKG, echocardiography, MRI, CT and heart catheterization.
