Nathan's Heart Check up

Yet another trip the UW Children's Hospital. Nathan had an Echocardiogram, EKG, and Exam/consult this past week.

His levels are still the same as last time. Peek gradients of 70's, but no ventricular thickening or damage. That means when his blood pressure is 102/60 on his arm it is actually 172/60, in his heart. So his case is in review with the Pediatric Cardiology Intervention Surgical team.

Since he is getting older and his body growth is on track, his heart condition will be reviewed to see if now is the time a Balloon Valvuloplasty would be most effective. We won't hear any recommendations until Christmas time so we will keep you posted.
