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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[symptoma.com] She developed congestive heart failure from mitral bioprosthetic valve stenosis due to early structural valve deterioration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[oadoi.org] The patient eventually developed severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and clinical evidence of congestive heart failure over 10 years duration before admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] heart failure Pulmonary disease – Airway obstruction, potentially leading to sleep apnea, severe respiratory compromise, or cor pulmonale Ophthalmologic disease – Corneal[emedicine.medscape.com] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lutembacher Syndrome

    Note the thickened, narrowed, and calcified mitral valve apparatus and doming of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve.[emedicine.medscape.com] 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[symptoma.com] A working diagnosis of severe congestive heart failure was made.[cdt.amegroups.com]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

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

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

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

  • 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 ...[icd10data.com] 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[quizlet.com] A: Report hypertensive heart disease as the principal diagnosis and acute congestive heart failure (CHF) as secondary.[hcpro.com]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[en.wikipedia.org] MR The symptoms of this valvular abnormality are those of congestive heart failure.[symptoma.com]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

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

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Heart failure is a rare cause of wheezing and may develop into a critical condition in children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] 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)[science.sciencemag.org]
