Child Health / / August 12, 2017
keep calm when the child is found at the heart of an additional chord is rarely parents.Panicked adults rushing from one medical center to another, are recorded on the consultation to the luminaries of Pediatric Cardiology, independently study the scientific (and not all) books.Not easily accounted and baby: it "tortured" inspections, analyzes, studies that are so distracted by games with their peers.And the most moving of them taboo - how can a sick heart?
cardiac function in heart valves is to ensure that the blood flow in one direction, preventing the mixing of venous and arterial blood.When the heart does the next reduction, the valve flexes slightly, but does not open, continues to hold the blood.Stay in this position, it allows special "spring" - the chord.In the human heart a few chords, they all have the muscle structure.If one of the chords of different density or a greater thickness, it is better seen in ultrasonic diagnosis.
doctors to find these chords, divide them in
- hemodynamically insignificant;
- hemodynamically significant.
first - absolutely harmless, the second requires control by cardiologists.
General chord in the heart of the child itself does not manifest .They are detected, usually by accident, when routine inspection.Doctors attributed the extra chord to genetic pathologies (transmitted through the maternal line).However, unlike a normal structure of the heart does not affect the performance as the heart and other organs and tissues.That is, health care should be reduced to an annual examination by a cardiologist, to prevent the emergence of pathological processes.
chords can be positioned in any heart chamber and the ventricular section, but 95% of them are found in the left ventricular valve.The direction of the chords can also be different: longitudinal, lateral, diagonal.With age, the direction may change.Approximately 70% of patients more chord - the only one in 25-35% of them - multiple.Features
If ultrasound diagnosis was revealed additional chord in the heart of a child, both parents and the youngest patient will have to learn to live with it.About any "hothouse" conditions it is not conducted.But since childhood, the child must live on a balanced regime.Night sleep should last at least 8 hours, the power has to be enriched with vitamins and beneficial trace elements.Not prohibited and mobile children's games, but they must alternate with good rest.
Any illness should be treated in a timely manner, without bringing them to a state of chronic.This is especially important for those who live with an extra chord.
