Arms Assigned Interventions Experimental: Ivabradine Ivabradine 5 mg twice a day for first 4 weeks and 7.5mg twice a day when positive ETT and HR＞60times/min or negative ETT and HR＞80...
To test whether ivabradine when given in combination with atenolol is able to improve the exercise tolerance of patients with stable angina pectoris
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) ...
Multicentre, double-armed, randomized controlled trial designed to compare mitral valve leaflet resection versus leaflet preservation with regards to the development of functional mitral s...
The aim of this study is to validate prospectively the predictive score of late results about a diverse population recruited in France and to evaluate the contribution in predicting the ou...
Right ventricular (RV) function has prognostic value in terms of survival and symptoms in patients with mitral stenosis (MS). The aim of the study was to assess RV function by strain analysis in the p...
We present a case of a 7-year-old boy with a history of multiple mitral valve interventions and subsequent Melody valve placement in the mitral position, who presented with acute mitral stenosis due t...
Percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty (PBMV) is the treatment of choice in patients with isolated mitral stenosis. This study aimed to assess the feasibility of PBMV under echocardiography guidanc...
The current study was planned to determine the effect of percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) on brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in mitral stenosis patients. It was conducted a...
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 condition characterized by a combination of OSTIUM SECUNDUM ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT and an acquired MITRAL VALVE STENOSIS.
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.
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 type of constriction that is caused by the presence of a fibrous ring (discrete type) below the AORTIC VALVE, anywhere between the aortic valve and the MITRAL VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
