Pulmonary Artery Stenosis
Pulmonary artery stenosis is a narrowing that occurs in the
pulmonary artery, a large artery that sends oxygen-poor blood
into the lungs to be enriched with oxygen.
Pulmonary artery stenosis is a congenital heart defect, meaning
it is a defect that exists at birth.
Symptoms of pulmonary artery stenosis may include:
- shortness of breath
- heavy or rapid breathing
- rapid heart rate
- swelling in the feet, ankles, face, eyelids, and/or abdomen
