10 Possible Causes for Aortic Valve Insufficiency, Bilateral Leg Weakness

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    What is TTR-FAP and who gets it? Approximately 10,000, or 1.1 per 100,000 people in the world, are estimated to be living with TTR-FAP, which often shows up when patients are in their thirties or forties.

He felt dizzy and had difficulty in standing up from bed and walking.[] The aortitis leads to slowly progressive dilation of the aortic root and arch, which causes aortic valve insufficiency and aneurysms of the proximal aorta.[]

  • Upper Limb Hypertrophy

    Current data suggest that this risk is less likely a direct consequence of the coarctation and more likely related to a bicuspid aortic valve and associated aortopathy.[] Patient’s face showed gross lipodystropy, wasting of sternmastoid muscles and upper arms muscles, bilaterally ( figure 4A-4D ).[] Symptoms and Signs If coarctation is significant, circulatory shock with renal insufficiency (oliguria or anuria) and metabolic acidosis may develop in the first 7 to 10 days[]
