  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    As the stenosis worsens, symptoms of orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea or dyspnea on exertion develops.[symptoma.com] Reduced cardiac output characteristically produces fatigue, dyspnea, orthopnea, and cyanosis. Surgical correction of the defective valve may be necessary.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] As stenosis intensifies Dyspnea may be encountered at rest and may evolve to include orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea.[pathwaymedicine.org]
