Pulmonary valve calcification

Last revised by David Luong on 5 Feb 2022

Pulmonary valve calcification is an uncommon occurrence and usually occurs in the presence of longstanding elevation of right ventricular pressures (such as that of severe pulmonary hypertension). It can also be associated with pulmonary valve stenosis. Some authors suggest if valve calcification is identified radiologically, the gradient across the valve can often exceed 80 mm Hg.
