holosystolic murmur
Explanation:
Also, dass Pressstrahlgeräusch tritt meiner Recherche zufolge am häufigsten bei einem Ventrikelseptumdefekt auf.

Das würde also gut zum englischen Holosystolic murmur passen

--> No intensification upon inspiration. VSD is a defect in the ventricular wall, producing a shunt between the left and right ventricles. Since the L ventricle has a higher pressure than the R ventricle, flow during systole occurs from the L to R ventricle, producing the holosystolic murmur. It can be best heard over the left third and fourth intercostal spaces and along the sternal border. It is associated with normal pulmonary artery pressure and thus S2 is normal. This fact can be used to distinguish from pulmonary stenosis, which has a wide splitting S2. When the shunt becomes reversed ("Eisenmenger syndrome"), the murmur may be absent and S2 can become markedly accentuated and single.

Ich bin mir nicht 100% sicher, aber ich hoffe es hilft etwas weiter!
