58 Possible Causes for Pansystolic Murmur, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • 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[] A 33-year-old man was investigated for dyspnea on exertion and the presence of a pansystolic murmur.[] Cardiac auscultation disclosed a grade 3/6 pansystolic murmur at the apex. Blood cultures were positive for Streptococcus viridans.[]

  • Mitral Valve Disease

    At surgery, nodular thickening of both valves and fusion of the posterior leaflet of the mitral valve were seen.[] The pansystolic murmur of MR is frequently very soft, and its intensity is unrelated to the severity of the disease.[] […] by weakening and ballooning Etiology Rheumatic heart disease–thickening, rigidity, retraction of mitral valve leaflets; ASHD, HTN, left ventricular enlargement, connective[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[] Clinical examination classically reveals a volume loaded (‘thrusting’) apex beat and a pansystolic (holosystolic) murmur that is heard on praecordial auscultation 1,2.[] Clinical examination classically reveals a volume loaded (‘thrusting’) apex beat and a pansystolic (holosystolic) murmur that is heard on praecordial auscultation 1,2 .[]

  • Myxoid Transformation of the Mitral Valve

    […] orifice (disorder) Systolic anterior movement of mitral valve Systolic anterior movement of mitral valve (disorder) Thickened mitral leaflet Thickened mitral leaflet (disorder[] Mitral valve prolapse ( MVP ; a.k.a. floppy mitral valve syndrome , systolic click murmur syndrome or billowing mitral leaflet ) is a valvular heart disease characterized[] Chronic Leaflets rheumatic thickening, disease: commissural mitral valve stenosrs. fusion, calcifications. fibrin warts on the closure line of the mural leaflet (arrows).[]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[] Mitral regurgitation is characterized by an apical pansystolic blowing murmur radiating to the axilla.[] The mitral valve can be thickened, calcified, have restricted movement and the mitral valve leaflets fused together. The aortic valve may also be thickened.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Valve leaflets become thickened and undergo sclerosis with narrowing of the opening area of the valve.[] Common findings include distended jugular veins, hepatomegaly, pansystolic murmur auscultated in the parasternal area at the 4th intercostal space.[] We began by exposing the mitral valve through Sondergaard's groove. Valve analysis revealed complicated fibroelastic deficiency.[]

  • Papillary Muscle Disorder

    RECENT FINDINGS: Mitral valve abnormalities in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy include leaflet elongation and thickening and hypertrophy with anterior displacement[] Present with a new systolic ejection murmur heard best at the left upper sternal border, with radiation to the neck and a new pansystolic murmur at the apex, with radiation[] Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This section reviews abnormalities of the mitral valve apparatus that are associated with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Disease

    Abstract From March 1977 through April 1982, 2-dimensional echocardiography detected 372 patients with rheumatic mitral valve disease.[] Cardiac murmurs are often present: A pansystolic murmur, which may signify blood flow through the ventricular septal defect.[] Two-dimensional echocardiography characteristically shows the following: Diastolic doming of the leaflets (especially the anterior tricuspid valve leaflet) Thickening of leaflets[]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    […] regurgitation and/or significant aortic regurgitation AND a thickened mitral valve and/or elbow deformity of the anterior mitral leaflet Probable Comes from a population[] murmur or early diastolic murmur at base of heart) Subcutaneous nodules (strong association with carditis) Erythema marginatum§ (bright pink macules or papules on extremities[] Mitral valvulitis can occur causing thickening of the leaflets. A murmur is created by increased blood flow across the thickened mitral valve.[]

  • Chordae Tendinae Rupture

    Nickname: ldunbar Interpretation: torn chordae or possible vegetation on the posterior mitral valve leaflet.Moderate MR. Thickened mitral and aortic leaflets.[] A pansystolic murmur alongwith bilateral basal crepitations were heard on auscultation.[] Thickened ( 5 mm), redundant mitral valve leaflets are thought to indicate more extensive myxomatous degeneration and greater risk of endocarditis and mitral regurgitation[]
