Please reply at your earliest. I am quite worried about her health.
Thanks a lot
A high SBP & low DBP are suggestive of a leaking (insufficient) aortic valve . If so and if significant, the only treatment is repair/replacement. Whether this is necessary at this point depends on whether the heart function has suufered from the leakage.
Hope this helps,
