Aortic valve

Posted By Doug on June 14, 1999 at 16:46:06
I have a VSD.  The aortic valve has one cusp that is being pulled through the VSD.  Unitl recently this was thought to have been a bicuspd aortic valve.  Question 1.  Will this cusp being pulled through the VSD eventuall have the same effect as a bicuspid av?  Question 2.  My left atrium is at 4.0 cm, upper limits of normal, What causes this and will it continue to grow?  I have trace regurg on 4 valves, aortic, mitral, pulmonary, and cant remember the forth.  Will this cause problems in the future?  Question 3 I have trival pericardal effusion.  What would cause this and can it worsen over time.  This was all reported off TEE and echo in 96.  Lately I have been having shortness of breath, chest pain in middle of chest, bad headaches with exertion (BP 90/70 pulse 150, normal resting pulse 88, 1 hour after exertion) could this be caused by things getting worse.  Question 4. Im in military (reserves) would doing physical fitness test (pushups, situps and 2 mile run) be a wise/ok thing to do in the future?  Running really sets off headaches.  Thank you for your service.
