We present the case of a healthy young woman that was evaluated before participation in amateur sports. A systolic and diastolic murmur was heard during the physical examination. Two-dimensional echoc...
We analysed lncRNA expression profiles in atrial samples from patients with rheumatic mitral valve disease (RMVD) to identify the potential differences in atrial fibrillation (AF)-associated lncRNAs b...
Recent studies lend credibility to the notion that lone atrial fibrillation (AF) can cause functional mitral regurgitation (MR), commonly referred to as atrial functional MR (AF-MR). The conventional ...
Identify patients undergoing transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) who could potentially benefit from alternative ischemic stroke prophylaxis utilizing a left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) device...
Left ventricular outflow tract obstruction is a serious complication of mitral valve surgery (repair and replacement) and transcatheter mitral valve replacement. An appreciation of the various mechani...
To demonstrate that the Conveyor System can safely provide left ventricular access to deliver the SAPIEN 3 (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) transcatheter heart valve in patients ...
People with coronary artery disease (CAD) or people who have had a heart attack may develop a leak in the mitral valve of their heart and may therefore need to undergo surgery to fix the v...
The study compares the efficacies of two surgical procedures for the treatment of mitral valve prolapse due to myxomatous degeneration of the mitral valve: the chordae replacement and the ...
This study evaluates the MValve mitral prosthesis in conjunction with a Lotus transcatheter heart valve (THV) for mitral valve replacement in subjects at high risk for conventional mitral ...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety and feasibility of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve in subjects with mitral annular calcification (MAC) associated with mitral stenosis (MS) ...
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
A condition characterized by a combination of OSTIUM SECUNDUM ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT and an acquired MITRAL VALVE STENOSIS.
