158 Possible Causes for Edema, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    Postpartum complications included pulmonary edema as well as peripartum heart failure and pulmonary thromboembolism 4 weeks postpartum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[symptoma.com] Ascites and edema and hepatomegaly (if right-side heart failure develops)Fatigue and weakness increase with exercise and pregnancy.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Other findings which are of importance include: cyanosis, clubbing, jugular venous distension, pulmonary edema, S 3 gallop, enlarged liver and peripheral edema.[symptoma.com] Persistent mitral regurgitation leads to thickening of the mitral valve leaflets, and, at times, it is difficult to distinguish this thickening from other causes of mitral[transplantbuddies.org] We report a case of 14-year-old girl who presented with dyspnea, bipedal edema, loss of weight, and easy fatigability for three months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    We report a case of a young female who developed flash pulmonary edema during parturition and was found to have abnormal rheumatic involvement of her aortic, mitral, and tricuspid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient finally died due to heart failure and acute pulmonary edema. Long standing RHD can lead to secondary AA amyloidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    […] and peripheral edema) and chest pain if coronary or aortic dissection is the cause of the regurgitation.[symptoma.com] leaflets and in the mitral subvalvular apparatus, causing thickening, retraction, and stiffening of valves and resulting in incomplete leaflet coaptation and valve regurgitation[oadoi.org] Acute AR typically causes severe pulmonary edema and hypotension and is a surgical emergency. Chronic severe AR causes combined LV volume and pressure overload.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tricuspid Stenosis

    […] with the following symptoms: Fatigue Dyspnea Abdominal discomfort and ascites, due to systemic venous congestion Pulsations felt by the patient at the neck area Peripheral edema[symptoma.com] The most common etiology is rheumatic fever, and tricuspid valve involvement occurs universally with mitral and aortic valve involvement.[emedicine.com] […] without pulmonary congestion - peripheral edema - Hepatomegaly - Jugular venous distention - ascites - cyanosis - fatigue - Sounds like mitral stenosis - Opening snap- (may[quizlet.com]

  • Fabry Disease

    In this paper, we studied a 54 year-old female who had complaints of leg pain, palpebral edema and telangiectasis and in whom foam cells in renal biopsy as well as proteinuria[jstage.jst.go.jp] […] without significant luminal occlusion. c Section through the mitral valve apparatus demonstrating mild mitral valve leaflet thickening and ballooning of the anterior and[doi.org] Pigmentary macular edema; Cirrhosis, HIV; Son and sister with FD; Both with proteinuria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    A 75-year-old man was admitted for evaluation of marked edema and jaundice. Serum total bilirubin was elevated above 20 mg/dl.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Echocardiography may show endomyocardial thickening, ventricular apical obliteration, and tethering of mitral and tricuspid leaflets. [13] The prognosis is poor for patients[emedicine.com] It usually manifests as a progressive heart failure with fatigue, exertional dyspnea and edema.[symptoma.com]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    This report discusses a 75-year-old male who presented with worsening dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, and lower-extremity edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , and thickened mitral valve leaflets suggesting infiltration.[content.onlinejacc.org] The usual cardiac symptoms noted in patients with amyloidosis include dyspnea, peripheral edema, and palpitations secondary to arrhythmias.(1) Chest pain secondary to myocardial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Symptoms of heart failure may include shortness of breath, fatigue, cough, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, and edema.[aafp.org] Echocardiography may show endomyocardial thickening, ventricular apical obliteration, and tethering of mitral and tricuspid leaflets.
