When developing a teaching plan for the parents of a child with aortic stenosis, the nurse would keep in mind that this disorder involves which of the following?
• Stenosis of the aortic valve prevents blood from passing freely from the left ventricle of the heart into the aorta.
• It causes pressure in the left ventricle of the heart as the heart attempts to force blood through the narrowed valve, thus leading to hypertrophy of the left ventricle. If
• In truncus
• In pulmonary stenosis, there is an inability of the right ventricles to evacuate blood by way of the pulmonary artery. This obstruction may lead to right ventricular hypertrophy.
