Clarification on aortic/mitral stenosis/regurg

10/27/2018 10:36:52 AM
I came across an explanation for an incorrect answer that is summarized by the following:


Chronic severe mitral regurgitation causes a bounding pulse with a brisk upstroke due to increased LV ejection volumes.

Mitral stenosis causes overall reduced arterial pulse amplitude.


Am I crazy, or is this supposed to be about regurgitation and stenosis of the AORTIC valve?
Or does the chronicity make a difference? Can't find this info in FA so probably low yield, but I'm curious anyways...
