Pulmonary Stenosis

Because there may be no obvious symptoms, the first indication of pulmonary stenosis is often a heart murmur, an extra sound heard during a chest examination. Pulmonary stenosis evaluation includes:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG), which records the heart's electrical activity
  • Chest X-ray to see the heart's size
  • Echocardiogram, which is an ultrasound examination of the heart
  • Exercise test to measure how much oxygen the heart can provide to your muscles while you exercise
