147 Possible Causes for Pulmonary Hypertension, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    hypertension (preoperative mean systolic pulmonary artery pressure was 72 /-12 mmHg, range from 60 to 105 mmHg).[] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[] Rheumatic mitral stenosis Rheumatic mitral valve stenosis Clinical Information Narrowing of the left atrioventricular mitral orifice Rheumatic disease causing diffuse thickening[]

  • Lutembacher Syndrome

    Nevertheless, its early recognition may be pivotal, especially in the setting of severe left-to-right shunting and pulmonary hypertension.[] Note the thickened, narrowed, and calcified mitral valve apparatus and doming of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve.[] Presentation can be due to cardiac failure, atrial arrhythmias, dyspnoea, exercise intolerance, paradoxical emboli or other disease related complications like pulmonary hypertension[]

  • Congenital Mitral Stenosis

    Definition (CSP) rheumatic disease causing diffuse thickening of the mitral valve leaflets by fibrous tissue or calcific deposits.[] A case of congenital mitral stenosis with pulmonary hypertension is presented.[] Note the thickened valve leaflets with a small opening orifice. The left atrium is dilated due to the mitral stenosis. 2 Fig 35 A B LV LA C A.[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    The splitting interval diminishes as pulmonary hypertension starts.[] Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[] 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[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Obstructive airway disease, cardiac valvular dysfunction, myocardial thickening, pulmonary hypertension, coronary disease, and myocardial infarction may be superimposed.[] There was no features suggestive of Pulmonary arterial hypertension.[] RESULTS: None of the patients had arterial hypertension, but 4% had evidence of increased pulmonary artery pressure.[]

  • Mitral Valve Disease

    A case of pulmonary hypertension associated with mitral valve disease and resistant to glyceryl trinitrate therapy during surgery is reported.[] At surgery, nodular thickening of both valves and fusion of the posterior leaflet of the mitral valve were seen.[] […] by weakening and ballooning Etiology Rheumatic heart disease–thickening, rigidity, retraction of mitral valve leaflets; ASHD, HTN, left ventricular enlargement, connective[]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    hypertension.[] 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[] hypertension (PAH).[]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[] […] age and body mass index together with NYHA class III-IV, significant pulmonary hypertension, reduced ejection fraction and development of heart failure during pregnancy are[] The mitral valve can be thickened, calcified, have restricted movement and the mitral valve leaflets fused together. The aortic valve may also be thickened.[]

  • Chordae Tendinae Rupture

    Nickname: ldunbar Interpretation: torn chordae or possible vegetation on the posterior mitral valve leaflet.Moderate MR. Thickened mitral and aortic leaflets.[] ., Research Headquarters, OsakaBackground: Although prostacyclin is recognized as a therapeuticbreakthrough for pulmonary hypertension, it needs continuousinfusion because[] Thickened ( 5 mm), redundant mitral valve leaflets are thought to indicate more extensive myxomatous degeneration and greater risk of endocarditis and mitral regurgitation[]

  • Ostium Primum Atrial Septal Defect

    Once regurgitation develops, the leaflets tend to thicken, making valve repair less successful.[] […] due to the pulmonary hypertension or one of mitral regurgitation due to the anterior leaflet cleft.[] , tricuspid, and pulmonary valves have disclosed morphologic and architectural modifications. 40 The mitral valve abnormalities consist of thickening and fibrosis of leaflets[]
