Pulmonic Valve Disease

Pulmonic valve regurgitation (PR) is typically acquired from increased pulmonic pressures (pulmonary hypertension). PR can also result from primary valve abnormalities caused by endocarditis. PR causes a diastolic murmur along the left sternal border. Surgery for patients with acquired PR is rarely performed.

Pulmonic valve stenosis (PS) is mostly congenital, although secondary causes include tumors, endocarditis, and car-cinoid. PS is best treated with percutaneous valvuloplasty, with good long-term results.
