Pulmonary valve disease is condition refers to any disorder of your heart's pulmonary valve, which is responsible for keeping blood from your heart flowing properly to your lungs. This is the valve separating the right ventricle (one of the chambers in the heart) and the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary artery carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs. Symptoms of pulmonary valve disease are bluish tint to the skin, chest pain, fainting, heart palpitations, unexplained fatigue, failure to thrive, difficulty breathing.
Statistical analysis of pulmonary valve disease around the Switzerland has given the result as pre-operative PFTs showed markedly elevated airways resistance (RRS) (median 0.45 cmH2O/mL/sec, range 0.17-0.66) and marked variability of the static compliance of the respiratory system (CRS) (median 0.6 mL/cmH2O/kg, range 0.25-2.6). Flow-volume loops measured by forced deflation showed flow limitation within the medium to small airways.
