106 Possible Causes for Mitral Valve Insufficiency, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    valve disorders I34.0 Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) insufficiency I34.1 Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) prolapse I34.2 Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) stenosis I34.8 Other nonrheumatic[] 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[] valve insufficiency).[]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    Symptoms may include: Mitral valve Insufficiency/regurgitation The primary symptoms of mitral valve insufficiency/regurgitation may include: Shortness of breath Fatigue and[] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[] Mitral Valve Insufficiency or Regurgitation: The other mitral valve condition is known as Mitral valve insufficiency or mitral valve regurgitation.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to quantify glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in amniotic fluid (AF) from an MPS VII fetus compared with age-matched fetuses obtained from normal pregnancies. METHOD: Disaccharides were measured by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry, compared to age-matched controls.[…][]

  • Myxoid Transformation of the Mitral Valve

    Myxomatous transformation of the mitral valve producing mitral insufficiency. Floppy valve syndrome.[] […] orifice (disorder) Systolic anterior movement of mitral valve Systolic anterior movement of mitral valve (disorder) Thickened mitral leaflet Thickened mitral leaflet (disorder[] Only two of these had pathologic evidence of severe mitral insufficiency. Twenty-four normal hearts served as controls.[]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    The mitral valve also may be distorted by the thickened septum, leading to mitral insufficiency.[] […] of an anomalous papillary muscle [arrow] onto the ventricular surface of the anterior mitral leaflet).[] The mitral valve leaflets often appear enlarged relative to the cavity of the left ventricle.[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    valve (disorder) Mitral valve incompetence congenital mitral insufficiency congenital mitral regurgitation mitral regurgitation MR Mitral insufficiency, MI Congenital insufficiency[] Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[] Mitral valve insufficiency (regurgitation) is the condition characterized by backflow of the blood from the left ventricle to the left atrium during systole, due to mitral[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    […] methods; mitral valve insufficiency/surgery; postoperative complications; risk factors; treatment outcome[] […] history of endocarditis history of illegal drug use mitral valve prolapse and valve regurgitation (leaking) and/or thickened valve leaflets The risk of infective endocarditis[] , or through the mitral valve to the atrium due to mitral insufficiency .[]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Each patient previously had been operated for mitral stenosis; one patient had additional aortic valve replacement for aortic insufficiency.[] Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[] Pulmonary and tricuspid insufficiency may occur from rheumatic involvement of these valves, or secondary to dilatation of valve annuli from pulmonary hypertension secondary[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) will show a dilated left ventricle and atrium, with poor function and mitral valve insufficiency (leaking of the valve).[] 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[] […] and tricuspid valve insufficiency Complications Conduction defects–eg atrial & ventricular tachyarrhythmias and fibrillation Management Supportive–eg rest, weight control[]

  • Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis

    We examined a patient with mitral valve insufficiency, a sudden decrease in vision in the right eye, and premacular hemorrhage, which was a sign of subacute bacterial endocarditis[] Patients most at risk of developing bacterial endocarditis include those who have: Acquired valve disease (for example, rheumatic heart disease) including mitral valve prolapse[] She was found to have aortic, mitral, and pulmonary valve insufficiency, and the initial diagnosis was subacute bacterial endocarditis.[]
