Insights on the canine mitral valve in the course of myxomatous mitral valve disease
According to some earlier studies, MVP was considered to be a disease with frequent and serious complications including stroke, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, and mitral regurgitation due to myxomatous degeneration, redundancy of the valve, and supraventricular arrhythmias (8,9,10).
Underlying rheumatic heart disease of the mitral valve was noted in 2 patients (2.9%) and myxomatous disease was present in 1.
(81) Myxoid liposarcomas lesions have low/intermediate T1 signal intensity (Figure 8A) due to the myxoid stroma and high water content of the myxomatous elements and very high T2 signal intensity (Figure 8B).
Our opinion is that adventitial cystic disease is the cause of this false aneurysm, which may be a result of (1) repeated microtrauma; (2) ectopic ganglion cyst migrating from the adjacent joint; (3) systemic myxomatous degeneration; and (4) developmental rests of mucin-secreting mesenchymal cells derived from adjacent joints and development of obliterative disease, or it can rupture and cause a pseudoaneurysm, which may have happened in our patient [8].
The histopathological examination of the excised masses revealed myxomatous cellular proliferations with sparse collagen fibers consistent with multiple myxomas (Figures 6(a) and 6(b)).
Seldom, myxomatous, or streaming patterns can be observed, which show cells that are more stellate and pleomorphic with prominent intercellular spaces [6, 7].
