108 Possible Causes for Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets, Transient Ischemic Attack

  • 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[] Anticoagulants to prevent thromboembolism are recommended only for patients with AF or prior transient ischemic attack or stroke.[] Transient ischemic attack: a complication of mitral valve prolapse in pregnancy.
