Pulsus tardus et parvus

In medicine, pulsus tardus et parvus, also pulsus parvus et tardus, slow-rising pulse and anacrotic pulse, is a sign where, upon palpation, the pulse is weak/small (parvus), and late (tardus) relative to its usually expected character. Classically, it is seen in aortic valve stenosis.

With respect to aortic stenosis, "typical findings include a narrow pulse pressure, LVH, a harsh late-peaking systolic murmur heard best at the right second intercostal space with radiation to the carotid arteries, and a delayed slow-rising carotid upstroke (pulsus parvus et tardus)."Toy, Eugene, et al. "Case Files: Internal Medicine." McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2007. Page 43. ISBN 0071463038.]
