Pulmonary Insufficiency Pulmonary Regurgitation

If this rare condition occurs, it is probably congenital. A

distinctive murmur of this insufficiency would be diastolic and

accentuated in the second intercostal space on the left of the

sternum. It should be remembered that aortic murmurs are often more

plainly heard at the left of the sternum. Sooner or later, if this

lesion is actually present, the right ventricle dilates and cyanosis

and dyspnea occur. Digitalis would therefore be indicated.
