Medical - Medical: Cardiology / Patient discharge report, exitus due to multiorgan failure
Spanish term or phrase: esclerosis aórtica sin gradiente patológico
Hi all,

This a Spanish (Galicia) discharge report for a very elderly patient who suffered exitus due to multiorgan failure.
In the case history it mentions atrial fibrillation was detected in 2016 and a pacemaker fitted. An ECG taken during this period showed:

"no datos de ventricular disfunción y unicamente ****esclerosis aórtica sin gradiente patológico**** e insuficiencia leve con insuficiencia leve mitral."

Are any of these options acceptable, and/or which is preferable:
"aortic sclerosis with no significant pressure gradient"
or
"aortic sclerosis of a pathologically insignificant gradient"
or
"aortic sclerosis without a / with no pathologically significant gradient"?

TIA for any help.

Explanation:
Hi Neil,
this is the usual English expression equivalent to the original Spanish.
Low gradient (sin gradiente patológico) versus High gradient (con elevado gradiente)

Sorry for the confusion; it looked too familiar and I over read it.
As Charles Davis has already pointed out, your first option is fine. You could as well skip "pressure";
Aortic [valve] sclerosis with no significant [pressure] gradient

Aortic sclerosis. No significant gradient across aortic valve.

Although this is not really correct, I think it's worth getting something in the glossary. Thanks anyway

Notes to answerer
Asker: No worries Saltasebes - I've done the same thing before, misread a word and wandered off on a slight tangent... and I'm sure it'll happen again! Thanks for your input de todas formas.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Joseph Tein: This looks like it refers to a specific type of aortic valve gradient; I don't think it's the same thing as the term that needs to be translated here.

  -> The original actually refers to a (no significant) aortic valve gradient. But I am wrong, as I have been reading stenosis instead of sclerosis. Thanks for pointing this out!
