67 Possible Causes for Failure to Thrive, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    […] multiorgan deterioration that includes hepatosplenomegaly, dysostosis multiplex, short stature, coarse facial features, corneal clouding, joint contractures, umbilical hernias, failure[surgicalneurologyint.com] […] to thrive, intellectual disability, and developmental delay.[ 5 12 ] The extensive storage of these glycosaminoglycans is also known to cause meningeal thickening.[ 4 ] Intraoperatively[surgicalneurologyint.com]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1 H-S

    Progressive thickening and stiffening of the valve leaflets can lead to mitral and aortic regurgitation, which may become hemodynamically significant in the later stages of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    In children, failure to thrive is an important hallmark of almost all serious heart conditions.[symptoma.com] Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] valve prolapse were classified into two groups: those with thickening and redundancy of the mitral valve leaflets ("classic") and those without ("non classic") in an attempt[acc.org]

  • Noonan Syndrome

    […] to thrive, short stature, feeding difficulties, sternal deformity, renal malformation, pubertal delay, cryptorchidism, developmental or behavioral problems, vision problems[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Transthoracic echocardiography revealed thickening of all the four valves.[annals.in] The patient presented with postnatal-onset failure-to-thrive, developmental delay, microcephaly, velopalatal incompetence, pectus excavatum, coarctation of aorta, atrial and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lutembacher Syndrome

    It is severe ASD therefore Clinical features at 6 - 10 wks Failure to thrive Recurrent infections Feeding difficulties CHF ECG : Left axis deviation.[mediconotebook.com] Note the thickened, narrowed, and calcified mitral valve apparatus and doming of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve.[emedicine.medscape.com] Note severely dilated left atrium, calcified and thickened mitral valve leaflets, doming of the anterior mitral valve leaflet, mitral annular calcification, and reduced opening[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Atrioventricular Septal Defect

    The main symptoms are feeding problems, failure to thrive and frequent pulmonary infections. The symptoms are similar to those caused by a large VSD.[dhzb.de] In the midesophageal long-axis view, remnants of mitral valve chordae originating from the base of the thickened anterior mitral leaflet and attached to the interventricular[journals.lww.com] Infants may present with congestive heart failure , tachypnea , excessive sweating, failure to thrive, extremis with acidosis , severe hypoplasia of left-sided structures[wikidoc.org]

  • Congenital Mitral Stenosis

    All were symptomatic with severe congestive heart failure and failure to thrive. Effective reduction in mitral gradient was initially achieved in 7 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Definition (CSP) rheumatic disease causing diffuse thickening of the mitral valve leaflets by fibrous tissue or calcific deposits.[fpnotebook.com] On detailed evaluation, it was found that the child had severe breathlessness, feeding difficulty, failure to thrive and recurrent respiratory tract infection.[jscisociety.com]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

    Fig. 1 Subcostal echocardiographic view showing anterior (arrowhead) and posterior mitral valve thickening with subvalvular involvement (asterisk).[karger.com] The GAGs accumulation affects the subvalvular and valvular structures producing a distal thickening of the leaflets, loss of mobility and valve regurgitation, especially of[karger.com] The echocardiogram revealed a preserved and nonhypertrophic left ventricle with a severe mitral valve regurgitation in relation to subvalvular and valvular thickening, retraction[karger.com]

  • Endocardial Fibroelastosis

    Symptoms - Endocardial fibroelastosis Breathlessness Cough Wheezing Feeding difficulty Excessive sweating Failure to thrive Recurrent chest infections (20%) Causes - Endocardial[checkorphan.org] Primary EFE is characterized by a dilated left ventricle (LV) that typically has a high takeoff of the papillary muscles and thickening of the free edge of the mitral valve[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Once regarded as a common cause of unexplained heart failure, EFE is now considered rare.[checkorphan.org]

  • Marchesani-Weill Syndrome

    At operation we found thickened mitral valve leaflets and chordal apparatus and mitral valve repair was done as described earlier.[academic.oup.com] Two infant brothers presented with progressive severe mitral valve stenosis and pulmonary hypertension with a need for operation.[academic.oup.com]
