Last physical check up, my 12 year old son diagnosed with a subarotic memmbrane. He does not have any syndrome except heart murmur. He is normal kid playing basket ball, running, biking, swimming ….
As per doctor advice we did echo test. Echo test conclusion given below:
5 mm subarotic membrane 7 mm from aortic annulus , with mild subaortic stenosis (peak gradient 20 mm Hg)

Doctor said open heart surgery required to stop future more aortic valve leak. Base on his echo report, when we should go for the surgery or we will wait and monitor? A concerned parents …any answer means lot to us…..
