152 Possible Causes for Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Chronic rheumatic heart disease mostly affects the mitral valve , which can become thickened with calcification of the leaflets, often causing fusion of the commissures and[] Further endocarditis can develop with aseptic vegetations along the valve closure lines, in particular the mitral valve.[]

  • Dexfenfluramine

    A transthoracic echocardiogram of the mitral valve, parasternal long-axis view, shows thickened and retracted leaflets and chordae tendineae (Panel A).[] Restricted Mobility of Anterior and Posterior Mitral-Valve Leaflets According to Study Group. The mitral leaflets were also assessed for thickening and mobility.[] The echocardiogram revealed unusual thickening of the mitral-valve leaflets and chordae tendineae with leaflet retraction ( Figure 1A ), which resulted in malcoaptation of[]

  • Ergotamine

    At surgery, nodular thickening of both valves and fusion of the posterior leaflet of the mitral valve were seen.[]

  • Lymphocytic Myocarditis

    valve 2) thickening of anterior mitral valve leaflet what is the etiology of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy sarcomeric mutations in structural proteins leads to myofiber disarray[] […] of the anterior mitral valve leaflet 2) this causes friction on the left ventricular outflow tract leading to a LVOT plaque 3) this plaque can then cause sub aortic stenosis[] 2) angina 3) syncope 4) sudden death that is exercise related why do most patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy have sub aortic stenosis 1) patients normally have a thickening[]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[] Definition (CSP) rheumatic disease causing diffuse thickening of the mitral valve leaflets by fibrous tissue or calcific deposits.[] Thickening of mitral leaflets in rheumatic mitral valve stenosis is well described in necropsy studies; however, volume computation of the thickening mitral leaflets has not[]

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis

    , and thickened mitral valve leaflets suggesting infiltration.[] The most common echocardiographic feature is thickening of the LV wall, particularly in the absence of hypertension. ( 22,24–28 ) This is often referred to incorrectly as[] […] view) from a patient with AL cardiac amyloidosis showing normal biventricular dimensions, granular “sparkling” ventricular wall appearance, concentric left ventricular wall thickening[]

  • Necrotizing Vasculitis

    Echocardiogram revealed significant thickening of aortic root, aortic cusps, and anterior mitral valve leaflet, with severe aortic regurgitation that required aortic valve[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1 H-S

    CALIFORNIA LOCAL February 1, 2001 THOMAS H. MAUGH II, TIMES MEDICAL WRITER How much difference can one set of parents make when their child is diagnosed with a fatal genetic illness? In the case of Ryan Dant, all the difference in the world. Ryan was an apparently healthy 4-year-old undergoing a preschool physical[…][]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    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 .[] Mitral valvulitis can occur causing thickening of the leaflets. A murmur is created by increased blood flow across the thickened mitral valve.[]

  • Chorea

    Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[]
