Jacqueline Anne Noonan is a pediatric cardiologist best known for her characterization of a genetic disorder now called Noonan syndrome. She was also the original describer of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Biography Noonan was born October 28, 1928 in Burlington, Vermont. She studied chemistry at Albertus Magnus College, medicine at the University of Vermont, and became certified in her field in Boston in 1956. She subsequently began work at the University of Iowa. As their first pediatric cardiologist, she noticed that children with a rare type of heart defect called pulmonary valve stenosis often had a characteristic physical appearance with short stature, webbed neck, wide-spaced eyes, and low-set ears. She presented her first paper on the subject in 1963, and after several more papers and recognition, the condition was officially named Noonan syndrome in 1971. Dr. Noonan moved on to the fledgling University of Kentucky medical school in 1961, where she served for over forty years. An endowed chair in pediatric research has been established in her name, and while she semi-retired as of 2007, she was still working at age 85 as of February 2014.
In December 2018, Chris is a 41 year old male with a height of 5' 11" and a weight of 355 pounds.
Chris has a history of congenital pulmonary stenosis having had open heart surgery which included a pulmonary valvulotomy and closure of a patent foramen ovale on March 14, 1978 when Chris was 3 months old.
On the recommendation of Dr. Noonan, Chris has been seen by cardiologists at various places where he has lived all his life. Dr. Noonan said that since Chris had his valve removed at such a young age, he might have to have subsequent surgeries as he grew to keep the pulmonary valve opening working properly.
No cardiologists recommended further surgery until late 2017. At that time Dr. Andrew R. Leventhal, cardiologist at the University of Kentucky ordered an echo and an MRI and recommended that Chris have surgery to install a pulmonary valve because he said there was backflow into the heart due to the lack of a pulmonary valve which would act as a check valve.
In March 2018, almost exactly 40 years since the original surgery, Chris and his father met with a cardiac surgeon, Dr. James A. Quintessenza, at the University of Kentucky to plan the surgery recommended by Dr. Leventhal. After 3 heart tests at the University including a pulmonary function test, an ultrasound and a chest X-ray. Dr. Q recommended that the heart surgery be postponed as long as possible in hopes that Chris could lose weight below his present 355 pounds and in anticipation that advances in heart surgery techniques could enable the valve to be installed without open heart surgery. Dr. Q said that, although he could do the surgery now, he did not feel that it was an urgent procedure and that it might be a safer procedure in the future.
After Dr. Q called Dr. Leventhal and discussed his concerns with him they agreed that Chris would be monitored every six months and the surgery would be postponed as long as his medical condition did not deteriorate.
Six months later, during a follow-up visit in September 2018, Dr. Leventhal said that Chris' medical condition had not deteriorated but it had not improved either and he recommended, once again that Chris have the surgery done within the next year.
