Mitral valve disease, including mitral regurgitation (MR) and mitral stenosis
(MS), is the most prevalent type of VHD.

, Transthoracic Echocardiography
Amongst RHD, the predominant lesion is Mitral Stenosis
, while Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) remains the most common lesion amongst CHDs.
Objective: To know the regression of right ventricular pressure after successful percutaneous transluminalmitral commissurotomy (PTMC) in patients with severe isolated mitral stenosis

21) Reports of narrowing of the outflow tract in birds are rare and are limited to left outflow tract narrowing associated with a ventricular septal defect in a Moluccan cockatoo (22) and subaortic valvular stenosis associated with mitral stenosis
in a duck (Anas platyrhynchos).
Ischaemic strokes are more in permanent AF, Non valvular atrial fibrillation and rheumatic severe mitral stenosis
In India, rheumatic mitral stenosis
(MS) comprises 88% of heart diseases complicating pregnancy.
Myxoma-induced dyspnea in a pregnant woman with any causes (paradoxical embolism, peripheral embolism, function mitral stenosis
or functional mitral regurgitation, pulmonary edema, or fluid overload) causes hypoxia, which is fatal to the fetus.
MVR is a common treatment for mitral valve disease, including mitral stenosis
(when the valve doesnt allow enough blood flow) and mitral regurgitation (when blood leaks backwards out of the valve).
Somewhat of a pathologic variation to chronic pulmonary vasoconstriction is pulmonary venous hypertension, consequential to mitral stenosis
or left ventricular failure.
(MS) is almost exclusively caused by chronic rheumatic heart disease.
