Stenosis

stenosis is an abnormal narrowing in a blood vessel or tubular organ.

There are many types of stenosis depending on the structure affected

Vascular stenotic lesions include:

Peripheral artery stenosis Angina (coronary artery stenosis) Carotid artery stenosis  Renal artery stenosis

 

 Stenosis in heart valves are:

Pulmonary valve stenosis Mitral valve stenosis Tricuspid valve stenosis Aortic valve stenosis

Stenosis of other bodily structures/organs include:

Pyloric stenosis  Lumbarcervical or thoracic spinal stenosis Tracheal stenosis Atherosclerosis

Causes:

atherosclerosis infection Diabetes inflammation neoplasm smoking

Diagnosis:

Stenosis of the vascular type are often associated with unusual blood sounds resulting from turbulent flow over the narrowed blood vessel. This sound can be made audible by a stethoscope, but diagnosis is confirmed with some form of medical imaging.
