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
  • fatigue
  • heavy or rapid breathing
  • rapid heart rate
  • swelling in the feet, ankles, face, eyelids, and/or abdomen
