158 Possible Causes for Heart Failure, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    We report a case of giant left atrial myxoma in a young patient with clinical manifestation as congestive heart failure attributable to severe mitral valve stenosis.[] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[] She developed congestive heart failure from mitral bioprosthetic valve stenosis due to early structural valve deterioration.[]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Two groups of patients were compared: those with thickening of the mitral-valve leaflets and redundancy (designated the classic form; n 319) and those without leaflet thickening[] The patient eventually developed severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and clinical evidence of congestive heart failure over 10 years duration before admission.[] A 31-year-old male was diagnosed with congestive heart failure due to left ventricular noncompaction and coarctation of the aorta by echocardiography and computed tomography[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    failure.[] heart failure Pulmonary disease – Airway obstruction, potentially leading to sleep apnea, severe respiratory compromise, or cor pulmonale Ophthalmologic disease – Corneal[] The younger sibling has never received any cardiovascular drugs, whereas the older one has been using β-blockers and diuretics in addition to enzyme therapy to cope with heart[]

  • Lutembacher Syndrome

    Note the thickened, narrowed, and calcified mitral valve apparatus and doming of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve.[] On the other hand, right ventricular overload and reduced compliance may progress to pulmonary hypertension and congestive heart failure, in which case a poor prognosis is[] A working diagnosis of severe congestive heart failure was made.[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[] Independent prognostic value of functional mitral regurgitation in patients with heart failure.[] 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[]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    […] of an anomalous papillary muscle [arrow] onto the ventricular surface of the anterior mitral leaflet).[] Symptoms of heart failure develop.[] The mitral valve leaflets often appear enlarged relative to the cavity of the left ventricle.[]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    I50.21 Acute systolic (congestive) heart failure I50.22 Chronic systolic (congestive) heart failure I50.23 Acute on chronic systolic (congestive) heart ...[] Calcific deposition on base posterior mitral valve leaflet Thrombi on ATRIAL surface or ATRIAL wall fibrous thickening at leaflet friction areas (and at mural endocardium[] A: Report hypertensive heart disease as the principal diagnosis and acute congestive heart failure (CHF) as secondary.[]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    Increased life expectancy and age-related valvular degeneration remain the predominant contributors to heart valve dysfunction, which if uncorrected lead to congestive heart[] This results in generalized inflammation in the heart, this manifests in the mitral valve as vegetations, and thickening or fusion of the leaflets, leading to a severely compromised[] MR The symptoms of this valvular abnormality are those of congestive heart failure.[]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    congestive heart failure.[] Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[] The mitral valve can be thickened, calcified, have restricted movement and the mitral valve leaflets fused together. The aortic valve may also be thickened.[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Heart failure is a rare cause of wheezing and may develop into a critical condition in children.[] 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[] Here we report that an inherited human dilated cardiomyopathy with refractory congestive heart failure is caused by a dominant Arg Cys missense mutation at residue 9 (R9C)[]
