"In the apex. We are adam had a lot of experience with news with posted polka polka out. So we started using cdt to predict where were were to. Who's things we learned that the only thing that really seals ms valves the external skirt that in order trying to land a very short landing zone with an external skirt that's only a few millimeters. It was a little bit like blunt lending a seven forty seven on a parking lot so that the rails actually did a a little bit with that. We had modified we could change. Which would nose was was directing by falling wire. We can also change the back of the valve using a technique called pool. A was Where we could flex back particularly for those people that we had a very distance from the turnbuckle. Punctured the annual apply. So we started mixing all these things together including modification of the sapien valve in the central skirt. Try and improve outcomes. What ultimately we started noticing a lot of these patients had these very small hyper contract. Our hearts that counter yoder's enosis and all this had to be had to be dealt with in order for for tomake technically successful procedure with oracle benefit which means that the patient had to not be hurt by the procedure and be able to get up at increased their activity not to sit in the bed with the low elvia t gradient or no mine just nelson or no mitral regurgitation. The leak business has gotten considerably. Better in is also a major source of morbidity for for our patients because trans transfusion or repents transfusions of people with with hemolytic anemia. To the small pair of our leaks were very difficult to manage as as containing peel back the onion we see as part of the most challenging case that we're doing at this point ended is the valid mac in the valve in rings in the the outcomes have improved tong in which the number of patients denominator has improved a ton. There have been some larger registries following the data on these patients or trying to ultimately you see respectively. Make better outcomes for better patient selection more understanding which i think is is important but but all ultimately is all these adjuncts that have created some movement and until we get dedicated delivery system. Dedicated were still left with off shelf. Adjuncts to improve this and so we the people that are interested in this technique. But i would say unless you're prepared for for all these extras accessorising your.

"Every single case and that nutrients catheter techniques. That we've described here can really provide durable treatment for mitral valve disease in these high risk. Nonsurgical patients you guys talk about triumph innovation. Just have to apply our few guides and your team for the incredible work for this patient. And just thinking through what you did so successfully you completely alter the trajectory for valvular heart disease you obliterated equity and the blood can now easily. Pass the la to the lv. It's a difference. You made i just over the course of a couple of hours in the procedure sleep and this is a situation where so many things can go wrong in procedurally and with the outcome just thinking about itself you can have valvular league mcgregor Through the leaflets. A clotting of the vowel functional stenosis potentially from a patient prosthesis mismatch got a big hole in the septum Essentially 'cause ast nino lv ot obstruction in addition to the peri procedural risks of guinea access. Putting catherine the body of on corey blood vessels and rain compare the valve in procedures in the mitral position valve valve valve in green valid mag unit all had nice paper between nineteen where they essentially showed the alvin mack procedures where the riskiest right with the lowest procedural success rate the highest shorter.

"You deploy the valve whether it's a mitral position or the arctic position here in the mitral position you're deploying in a stable standstill angeles exactly and only those with the strongest of heart will look back at anesthesia while matt is going on and so what's our valve is deployed. It is an immediate rush to make sure that everything is properly positioned in that the blood flow through the valve annual assists. Correct in so immediately. We go to your graphic by plane in the short and long access of the newly deployed valve to make sure that it is seated. Well if you do have access to the online supplementary material you'll notice in the short access that although this is a commercially available tavern vowel. That's being used off label for the mitral valve. It's not a totally circular structure. I think that really belies. The different shape of the mitral analysts versus the arctic anyalysts lists there and then we take a look with our three d. t. e. in what we can see is that there is a well seated valve in place. We see that there is trace leaks still through the valve. That's just there because we have a wire going across it. From april rail but overall the valve is well seated. It's opening the patient is getting good blood flow through it in when we check. Continuous wave doppler through the newly deployed. Trans catheter valve. We see the patient. Now has a mean pressure gradient across their mitral valve two millimeters of mercury whereas they started the procedure with a mean pressure gradient of sixteen millimetres of mercury as just amazing the other important aspect of this like john lewis go was talking about earlier is to make sure there's no lv ot obstruction that something that we check both at the time of the procedure and with a follow up. Transfer rasic echocardiogram the next day and in the patient's trance the razek echo the next day. What we saw was fantastic flow through the mitral valve itself and trans Gradient of eleven millimeters of mercury indicating that there was no significant lv ot obstruction in patients. That get this specific procedure. It's also important for us to do a follow up. Cat scan so that we can really review the anatomy of where the valve is how it sitting in its relation to other cardiac structures and so on the follow ct of the patient. What we were able to see is that valve is once again very well. Seated in the calcified mitral angeles the tips of the struts are just poking into the septum near the lv not in mid sicily and then in some of my personal favourite pictures on the c- t. Were able to reconstruct the narrowest point of the elvia not in see visually the open cells in that trans catheter. Mitral valve open and ready to allow blood to flow through insistently and so as far as our patient is concerned. They tolerated the procedure. They were excavated immediately following the procedure and transferred to the see. Cu for monitoring overnight by the next morning they were ambulation independently in re transferred to the floor there trans-pacific echo post op day. One shooter an injection fraction of sixty percent. Mitral valve mean gradient of six millimeters of mercury in order valve mean gradient of eleven millimeters of mercury. Our patient was restarted on their home. Coupon on post op day. Two in discharged home several days later after. Their einar became therapeutic in his done very well since that time i think ultimately for us the big points. We wanted to drive home with this talk. Is that mitral stenosis. Like you said it's very difficult to manage and often affects patients who are high surgical risk. Previously we had very few good surgical options. The main option being balloon valvular plastic. The which if you have any experience with patients who undergo balloon valvular plastic is a very fleeting treatment in almost.

"Louis jar the wires then electrified and snared in the left atrium once snared. You've now made a wire loop around the anterior mitral valve leaflet. The wire is a long exchange link wire so it's externalised. Area of the wire is kinked. In denuded to make something. We lovingly called flying v after the famous jimi hendrix guitar. In that flying v is then re entered into the body in position the base of the a to scallop dextrose is injected which flushes away ionic blood in confines the ablation of energy of electrified wire to that flying service and once electrified it's cooled and laceration occurs in the direction of the elbow t. So you now have an anterior mitral leaflet with a mid line laceration in the amazing thing about this is because it's not electrical aspiration the valve continues to co op. So the a trans catheter. Valve is placed inside of the native mitral valve in when it's inflated the valve opens to its fleet expanded area and the native valve leaflets harmlessly slid to the side so blood flow can exist through the open strikes of the trans catheter. Heart valve and again. The supplementary cartoon online is very easy to follow following that. We also have some supplementary images show with this laceration. Looks like in the swine model of which you can see online so again. Retrograde lampoon was shown to be effective in prohibitive risk overboard but the limitation with the technique becoming more widely used was the technical complexities associated with it and that pushed us to go back to the drawing board and say. How can we make this simpler. So that it's teachable in reproducible. In patients can get the benefit of it not just a highly selected sites in the country but closer to their home and because of that we worked in made in alcohol. Anti-gay lampoon been published outcomes first seven patients in circulation interventions at integrate. Lampoon is what you'll see. Further described in this case where a single transept of punchers used to deliver two steerable sheets through which to catheters or placed in now last Still mid line. But it doesn't require you to cross the arctic using retrograde catheters in it's technically simpler to perform third variant of lampoon that has also been very effective in recently accepted for publication. Jack interventions is a technique called tip. Base lampoon so if you think about how we describe lampoon so far in both the retrograde technique in the integrate technique..

"The diastolic pressure halftime grade than or equal to one hundred fifty milliseconds and can be greater than or equal to two hundred and twenty milliseconds with very severe Noces hema dynamically will appreciate severe left. Atrial enlargement and elevated pulmonary artery systolic pressure of more than thirty in. These are the patients that we classically see with decreased. Exercise tolerance and Yes this this table that we're looking out for the different stages of mitral valves. To says is so useful in his contract is a concert. We've begun over multiple times or any abnormality on imaging or any structure of melody. Whatever it is whether it's hcf where michaels in this case we think. What does the structural problem the anatomic problem in. What is the hema. Dynamic consequence and soil with worsening stages you have worsening level of mitral valve stenosis the structural features of the cause of mitral valve stenosis structural problem. And then we think what he dammit consequence the left atrium we said before like the of sided feeling pressure so the left atrial may become larger as pressure. Backs up your pulmonary pressure your pulmonary pressures go up as you develop worsening progressive group to me hypertension and this deisler pusher halftime concept. I think is very useful kind of intuitive right because as the degree of obstruction worsens. It's gonna take longer and longer for the pressure gradient to go down it's gonna take longer to fill blood to move flood from the la into the lv because of obstruction as it takes longer and longer the deisler pressure have increases. Which is the time. It takes for the pressure gradient to decrease to have which is again. Just the flip side of saying that look if a patient heart rate is higher. You have less time in. Yes she may not even get to a point where you've fairly. Lv all the way because you're di- slight pressure halftime diastolic.

The human dynamics consequences of mitral stenosis are longer dice our times to fill from the l. a. to the lv increasing size and worsening plummer pressure so very intuitive just in terms of bringing it down in that way yet thank you. There was a lot of information. I think you really distill it. Down to the core aspects and the acc aj have amazing figures in tables for the management of different types of mitral valve Beer rheumatic mitral stenosis. In symptomatic cases Favorable morphology. You don't have a clot in the left. Atrium have no or mild mitral regurgitation. A perkiness mitral valve ballooned or pnb see is a class one recommendation and when you don't have favorable anatomy then a mitral valve replacement is class one and when we were talking about this case earlier as john richton mentioned for the longest time either periodic monitoring or a surgical mitral valve replacement or valuable plastic. Were really our main options. But this keys really highlighted that we can go beyond these interventions their highs in is really expanding on what we can do for these patients who have mitral stenosis and finally..

"Blood through that orifice in again just to reiterate how important at heart rate is in mitral stenosis allowing the ventricle to fill despite obstructed orifice and how that plays theologies really can be very challenging especially in a feb. Or if they think you're really highlighting the salient points when it came to the physiology in really highlighting the point about a coordinated each contraction. We thought it would be a good idea. Something that i think all of us benefit from is reviewing the ha sec guidelines. So we'll go through the stage how to define valve anatomy valdemar dynamics the consequences and the symptoms for mitral stenosis and again. This is from the aj an sec guidelines so beginning with stage a which is defined as being at risk for mitral stenosis for this with the anatomy we can appreciate mild valve domingo during diaz steely. There will be a normal trans mitral flow velocity usually no hema dynamic consequences or any symptoms stage b is defined as progressive mitral stenosis in. But this there is rheumatic ballots changes with cars roll fusion and diastolic dorming of the mitral valve. Let's in a planet matured mitral valve area a more than one point five centimeters square. There is increased trans mitral flow velocities mitral valve area of more than one point five centimeters squared and a diastolic pressure. Halftime of less than one hundred and fifty milliseconds. He moved dynamically. We can appreciate a mild to moderate left atrial enlargement and normal pulmonary pressure at rest with no symptoms for stage. See this is defined as as symptomatic severe mitral stenosis in this romantic ballad changes with control fusion and diastolic. Dome ing the mitral valve leaflets. The plummeted marshall valve areas less than rico to one point five that can be less-than-regal to one in cases of very severe disease. Diastolic pressure halftime is greater than or equal to one hundred and fifty milliseconds and can be great and wrinkle to two hundred and twenty in cases of severe mitral stenosis. We can appreciate severe left e. tone large man and an elevated pulmonary artery systolic pressure of more than thirty in no symptoms because these patients are classified as being a symptomatic that brings us to stage d. was defined as symptomatic severe mitral stenosis. And in this there are romantic. Bell changes with comedy fusion and diastolic domingo without leaflets and planet mitral valve area less than or equal to one point five centimeters squared. Now this can be less than one centimeter square but very severe disease..

"So our case starts with the chief complain of shortness of breath our patient as a seventy seven year old female with the past medical. History of rheumatic valve disease both for a arctic and mitral valves status post surgical erotic valve replacement in nineteen ninety as well as a redo in twenty thirteen. At which time she had a saint jude. Twenty one millimeter. Mechanical bi leaflet valve placed. She also has heft path. Non obstructive coronary artery disease type two diabetes hypertension hypothyroidism and sick sinus syndrome. Status post duly pacemaker. Who presents us with progressively worsening shortness of breath. So this patient has a history. Of rheumatic valvular disease resulting initially in severe a arctic stenosis that required surgical valve replacement in nineteen ninety with a subsequent redo in twenty thirteen. She tolerated both procedures. But for about the past three years she's been complaining of progressive worsening in both her baseline shortness of breath as well as worsening disney on exertion. This patient was felt by our primary cardiologists. These symptoms were due to worsening. Her rheumatic mitral valve is and so in september of twenty nineteen due to moderate mitral stenosis. That time she had a mean gradient across the valve of about seven millimeters of mercury in about two plus. Mr the patient underwent shockwave balloon. Litho trixie of her mitral valve hoping for improvement in her symptoms however by january of twenty twenty her symptoms it continued to worsen and by this point arresting mitral gradient was up to sixteen millimeters of mercury in a heart rate of sixty five. Beats per minute until at this point. She was referred to the structural heart team at emory for consideration for advanced trans catheter valve therapy. As far as the patient's past medical history we already discussed. She has severe extend noces status posts sabir times to in nineteen ninety and twenty thirteen. The patient has severe hypertension hyperloop. Anemia type two diabetes and six sinus syndrome status post duly pacemaker as far as surgical history.

Eighty seven they both suffered from heart disease and diabetes and her mother also suffered from stroke. Socially the patient denied any tobacco alcohol or recreational drug use on initial presentation. Her vital signs were largely within normal limits. Temperature was thirty six point six centigrade. Her blood pressure was slightly elevated at one. Forty nine over seventy six. With a heart rate of seventy one in the patient was saturating. Ninety six percent on room air physical exam largely normal once again other than for her respiratory exam.

"Interventional cardiologists at Johns Hopkins Hospital Assistant Professor Professor of Medicine and Assistant Program Director of the Interventional Fellowship. Most recently he was named the Director of the structural program at Suburban Hospital title. He obtained his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University Completed Residency Training at University of Pennsylvania and came back to complete his cardiology fellowship at Hopkins during his fellowship. He earned an emmy chess in the graduate training program in Clinical Investigation at the Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Hudson and has been an absolute mentor and a guide throughout my cardiology training. I feel like every time I worked with him in a case in the lab. I definitely get made fun of a lot but I come out completely better for it. I spend in about seventy five plus percent of the time with my foot in my mouth and I'm just overcome with Giddiness when I'm working with them so without further Ado let's welcome Dr Ronnie's onto the show. Glad to be your guys were so excited to have you and get your expert opinion on the management of a Arctic stenosis. So we'll start with our first question. What one of the factors that you consider when evaluating patients for possible Tabar Warriors? Let me say that. This is a very dynamic area that is rapidly changing over time time as we procure more data regarding the efficacy of tavern different populations. But I think right now it's still starts with the patient's history and namely family is the patient symptomatic. Does the patient have severe symptomatic. erotics to knows now. That is something that may change guys may have already heard from. Ha there's been one major randomized trials suggesting that even in symptomatic patients with very severe aortic stenosis. There may be a benefit at least in that case of Surgical Agr in terms of reducing outcomes even after thirty days but for the time being for most of our Tabar patients especially those who are more elderly or the goal is really to maximize quality of life for me. The symptoms are still paramount. So do they have severe symptomatic. Eric Stenosis the next consideration for us used to really be what would be their risk to undergo conventional surgical valve replacement or. Save our savvy for short as we call it now vis-a-vis tavern and that's changing now with the approval of tavern for patients at low surgical risks. What we start to think about now is rather than think about? The is the patient at elevated risk for complications with Sabir and therefore should be Tabora candidate. We think more about what is this. Patient's expected life expectancy of vis-a-vis the life expectancy of their bio prosthetic valve. So if you've got a younger patient WHO's likely to go through at least two bioprosthetic valves. Maybe you're thinking of that. Patient is low risk. Maybe they shouldn't have surgery first and then get a tavern for their next foul and maybe if they need a third valve they can get another tavern tower on the other hand. If you've got somebody on the other end of the spectrum maybe canarian and known Genera on who who is GonNa need one valve and or who's clearly going to be at elevated risk for surgery then you're GonNa perform a tavern and then the patients in between you really have to look at each patient individually and come oftentimes to a shared decision making approach especially in younger patients to make sure the patient understands the issues with the durability of the devices vis-a-vis vis-a-vis their life expectancy how may more procedures they may need. That's wonderful and it's a really rapidly evolving field so it'll be exciting waiting to see how the guidelines change with regards to recommendations for Tavern based on varying risk profiles. Now let's say you've decided added that a patient is a great candidate for tavern. What are your thoughts about the pre tavern workup with regards to left heart? Catheterization Bruce's coronary. ICTSI so one of the most important considerations will revive wedding somebody for tavern or even trying to determine what the best approach is savvy versus tavern is a cardiac CTA PTA of the chest coupled with abdominal pelvic imaging to look at the peripheral vascular. So that tells us about the rude anatomy the size of the vow. It configuration of the coronaries relative to the order vow and whether there is sufficient size in the sinuses to accommodate the tavern of ice and the prolapsed Iraq valve leaflets. or No we do a tavern. We don't remove the Ovau there's no cutting involved. There's another section of leaflets. flits the native leaflets going to be splayed open and pressing against the into the sinuses of fell salve essentially. So you actually need a place for those bulky calcified leaflets stand up and where you don't want them to go. Is the name of a coronary. So we pay very close attention to the Oregon Anatomy to us to ensure that we have sufficient efficient sinus dimensions both diameters and heights. So that your leaflets are not going to obstruct your coronary or sequester. The sinus and then of course we're looking at the annual or diameter. We WanNa make sure we pick the right size device. All the device vendors of different sizes in generally told the patients there's a small medium large and extra large size is And then of course I WANNA make sure. We have a path to deliver the valve. So in ninety plus percent of cases we can go from access you with continuous puncture. But in rare cases there may be performed disease that may be prohibited in terms of allowing for large Bortis access required for tavern even though Komo devices now or down to fourteen to eighteen French there are still some patients who cannot tolerate that from from all approach and of course they're alternative approaches. That are can we used strategies that can be used so those pieces of information are really the most important planning now in terms of looking at Korea disease. I think this is an area. That's is also undergoing some vinik change over time when we first started doing taveres we believe everybody needed angiogram and if somebody had obstructive disease we needed to be vasseur career is it a feasible and so most people were doing standing and it's probably about a third of Tabar patients at least in the early trials who would have coexisting Cordero disease. I think we moved away from routine query vascular station. If somebody has a engineer that we think maybe driven by their coronaries inasmuch as their vow then sure we fix it but more and more. So we're we're finding that we do the angiogram really to help stratified them. For example if you have somebody with severe corridors easy might not want to rapidly pace them for a balloon expandable animal how that might leanest towards if al self expanding device Also somebody had corey disease that you think you might have to potentially come back and fix slater one elise leave that door open to be more easy than we might put a balloon expandable valve is. Somebody has a single or two vessel disease that you wonder. Oh maybe I might have to come back and fix this down the line. So but in terms of using the C. T. I think most of us still rely on a invasive according to Angiogram the main reason being as long as patients with severe Also have calcified coronaries and so we worry about the diagnostic accuracy of Cardiac C.. T. A. and was looking for corner corner instruction so I think for now most people will still do invasive angiogram in addition to the chastity that we get to evaluate the oric anatomy to to help ascertain the coroner's status before we embark on tavern versus ever and other than the coronary anatomy are there any other considerations that you take into cleese With regards to deciding whether to use a self expandable versus Berlin expanding so when I say a lot of this has to do with operator preference difference there are some institutions and operators who really have mastered one device platform. They're happy with it. They use it for everything We hear Are More more flexible in terms of our choice of devices that we try to tailor the choice to each patient's unique characteristics. So for me a patient. I shouldn't say with if they have really severe coronary disease where I think it would be higher risk to rapidly pace and it's unlikely we're going to try to reverse the rise in the future. I may go go with a self expanding of the vice similarly in somebody with very low e f Roy also want to avoid the stress of rapid pacing than a self expanding getting device would be preferable. The other circumstances were self expanding device would be preferable isn't a valve valve and we basically exclusively use self expanding device for valve in vows. You're treating a previous gate of existing but failed erectile prosthesis on the other hand if somebody has you know previous coronary vast Croatian withstanding and you think well they're working.

"Neuropathy. I've taken several different things. Get opinion all them things. I'm getting some fairly good results from horizontal which is kind of a form of Penn keeps me off. I have no use a cane, however, none of them sex, they just covered up and why. Greg. Why do you have neuropathy disease? It's a compression neuropathy in my back. There's a tight thing in the head and operation and been it moved up from the bottom of my feet to the top of my seat. Okay. So you have spinal stenosis is that during a bell, I guess that's what you call it. That's important. Okay. But anyway, but, but anyway, there's a new over here in Brevard county their advertising. It's a new process that's covered by Medicare that tries to get the capillaries of blood, your nerves in order to, to get relief from neuropathy uses some infrared lights and a couple of things it wouldn't cost me anything but does, does it work or can it work. Okay. There are a lot of gimmicks that are out there for this, okay? And so far. At what you're describing. There is sounds chiropractic. Okay. What they'll do is, they'll couch car practic treatment, and you do have chiropractic coverage under Medicare to a point. All right. So what, what you need to understand, though, is that the neuropathy that used to be at the bottom of your feet is now at the top of your feet. Okay. Probably reflects the fact that it's starting to heal okay? Now understand that the nerves in your back, oh, all the way to the bottom of your feet and toes. And as they start to heal though, he'll in reverse order, okay? The first the first place that gets injured is the bottom of your foot. It'll be the first place you start to fix it. So if I were you okay, I would be looking at things that are a little bit better. Okay. To do this, now the gap Penton, is helpful to some extent. But if you go ahead and adds some backlift into it. You're gonna find that the neuropathic discomforts construct to improve how much back within does it take their ten milligram tablet? You take a half twice a day with a hole in a bedtime. I've been using back within Detroit. Referal polyurethane for forty years. The stuff is awesome gabum, Penton. I wrote the first article on these together penetrate pain in the English literature been doing it since the stuff came out, does it work. And the answer is kinda does, but they're better medications for this Lyrica or pre gabbling being one of them. Then what can you do nutritionally to improve this, now the nerves are damaged? Okay. So there's one cell actually bundle these cells. But one cell runs from your spinal the way to your toe. It's one cell. Right. Okay. Then you take these cells in your group them into bundles, then we call them nerves when you collapse on the Exxon, which is the extension of that nerve the body, the nerve hasn't been compromised. That's actually in the dorsal root ganglion of your spine. But you can fix the acts on. Okay. Nutritionally. And if you can hang on over the break, okay, I'll give you some tips as to what you should be doing says, Greg hang tight. We'll come back after the news. That's right.

"You're having spinal stenosis, and you're having pain that's deep deep deep in the spinal cord, there's really not much you could do right on top of the skin that's going to locally and directly numb the spinal cord your body protects against that. You don't want anything that your body touches 'cause then paralyze you so in essence that doesn't happen. However, if much of your pain is let's say, you know, gerbil, shingles, etc. If some of the pain is perceived, you know, placebo can be very effective. And so the reason why some people have been touting these from these creams is because people will say, no it. Works. Give it to me. Just give me the creek. It works. And you're not supposed to work. But if you say it works, that's fine. By me. That's how I feel about a lot of things out there. If you say, it works is not hurting you. Fine by me, if it's better than the alternative, but. With this study coming out and saying may not work. I think there are some creams that do provide fit. But again, it may just be localized and may just be placebo. But also, you know, doesn't make sense if you have neuropathy if you have diabetic neuropathy and your feet hill because of nerves if it's superficial nerves bothering you. Yeah. Maybe these creams can help. But if it's the deep deep nerves. Oh, no. It's just not going to touch it. So what do we do? Well, we try to you know, we try to come up with medicines. That can either affect the nerves which we have to be very careful about because nerves innovate everything or affect your brings perception of the nerve pain. Now, we have to be careful with that. Because the reason why we heard is it's a defense mechanism. If you are sitting there next to a flame, you really need to feel it needs to hurts. Otherwise, you'll just let yourself burn. And I know that's not the most often occurrence. So people would rather be numb. But the like, for example, the reason why diabetics run the risk of losing their leg. Are there? Yeah. Losing a leg and foot is because they're not. They get a cut or sore other foot, and it may not hurt. They may not feel anything, and then it festers and investors plus lack of nerve function also doesn't aid in infection fighting. So they ended up getting a big nasty foot ulcer that ends up going to the bone. Now. They've infection the bone, and you know, many loser lake. So just going number aiming for numbing a nerve doesn't necessarily solve a problem. It can make things worse. One eight seven seven belly. You.

I'd rather have the ablation less invasive that makes sense. So let me tell our listening audience. What this is about. Okay. Hold on a second. You have you something called I h as as idiopathic hypertrophic sub aortic stenosis, which is okay. So what happens is the heart enlarges, and it's not the usual type of heart enlargement is when the heart and largest in relation to high blood pressure. You know, blood pressure causes the heart to work harder heart largest like an athletic hard. And then you may have problems hard may become baggy and not work as well. In this case, there's this it's idiopathic fancy medical word. Meaning we don't know why that is it probably genetic, and it gets worse as agent at the wall, the heart. Becomes so large that it blocks the outlet of the heart, and it causes the heart to work harder. And ultimately the heart Ken fail. Because of this added must hypertrophic muscle that gets in the way of the pumping action heart full. So how does it work? Yeah. Just listen, just listen, Al Potter down. So the so the the way to treat it is to zap it or cut it out. And it sounds like the less invasive route is helpful for you. Now, there are some studies that suggest the things like coenzyme q ten may be helpful for this carnitine may be helpful for this. But ultimately when it gets to certain point, the volume of of the hypertrophy of the enlargement is so great that you have to actually take care of that. And so, you know, I'm not a cardiologist. I'm not the world's expert on which procedure is most beneficial. But I would suggest. That at your age ablation is less invasive option, and maybe help away for you to deal with the problem. Okay. Thanks for your call Maria on Dr Ronald Hoffman. And our number eight seven seven seven two six eight to five five for intelligent medicine..

"Ralph gay welcome to the program. Dr gates nice to meet you. Thank you. Glad to be here. Good to have you on the program. So it's interesting, isn't it that this is so common? Eight out of ten people will have back pain at some point during their lives. It's the leading cause of disability for men over. At the age of forty five. What is the problem with the low back? The problem is that we're all aging that's part of it. But low back pain concerns people have almost all ages. We see significant low back pain and adolescence and young people. The most common age group for discrimination is between the ages of thirty and fifty. We're seeing a lot more people who are living longer and trying to be active, so many more people who have spinal stenosis. Tell us what that means. Knows this means, narrowing and you can have stenosis of many structures near body stenosis of your arteries to go to your heart. Stenosis of the spine has to do with the canal that the nerves go through. And there's a main canal that goes down through the middle. Then there's too small at each level between the vertebra. There are two small canals called Freeman and they can become narrower stenosis. Well, the common spinal stenosis is to notice of the main canal that can cause pain when you stand in walk because that can get smaller at that time, and you get pain in your buttocks or legs typically, and you sit down and goes away. So that's a common cause of of butter can leg pain, and sometimes back pain as well in more elderly patients, and then we all are aging and our spine ages are spine starts aging on microscope level by our late teen years by the time, we hit our twenties. We start seeing this bulges and protruding discs. And it just gradually ages as we get older. We don't know exactly why this is not something where it's a bad, gene. We do know that a lot of it is genetically determined based on twin studies where we can look at people who have identical DNA this is primarily done in northern European countries like Denmark where the contract people throughout their life. But a lot of this is genetically determined and we're living longer and ruining be more active. And so we see back pain throughout the course of life. So is this a skeletal problem because of that stenosis of the spine or is it a muscle? I always just think my low back pain is a muscle problem. But it doesn't sound like it is. Well, that's a very good question. And it's one that we don't have a very clear answer to when you look at studies that try to isolate what is causing back pain as far as a specific tissue is at adjoining deserve muscle nerve. We can't do that very well. And some of the studies would suggest that no more than maybe ten to fifteen percent of the time. Can we isolate a structure that we know is causing the person's pain most often, it's multifactorial if you have arthritis join in your back, and it's aggravated the muscles get tight, and they become painful, we're very good at at finding nerve problems pinched nerves or injured nerves. But when it when we get out of the realm of the nerve tissue into the musculoskeletal tissues, we say, the bones and the joints, and the discs were not very good at isolating exactly where the pain is coming from. And it's very difficult to do that clinically. There are a few of the tissues that we can within reason say are causing pain such as the small joints in the low back that often are affected by arthritis. But there are other structures that we know cause pain such as the..
