Identification of a high-risk subgroup with malignant mitral valve prolapse who are predisposed to sudden cardiac death. A Review.

Findings of this review propose that sudden cardiac death as a result of malignant arrhythmias arises from automaticity, complex ectopy, and reentry at the level of the fascicles and papillary muscles.

The Genetics of Mitral Valve Prolapse

This chapter briefly discusses the epidemiologic aspects of mitral valve prolapse, its pathophysiology, and the current status of genetic knowledge of this intriguing valvular disorder.

Characteristic Histopathological Findings and Cardiac Arrest Rhythm in Isolated Mitral Valve Prolapse and Sudden Cardiac Death

Individuals with iMVP and sudden death have increased cardiac mass, mitral annulus size, and left ventricular fibrosis compared with a matched cohort, with cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation.

Malignant Mitral Valve Prolapse: Risk and Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death

The prevalence and risk factors for a malignant phenotype in mitral valve prolapse characterized by life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac arrest and death (SCD) are explored, including mechanistic and pathophysiologic findings and mechanism-based potential therapies.

SCN5A Variants as Genetic Arrhythmias Triggers for Familial Bileaflet Mitral Valve Prolapse

This study is highly suggestive of the contribution of SCN5A mutations as the potential genetic cause of the electric instability leading to ventricular arrhythmias in familial MVP cases with syncope and/or SCD history.

Presentation and Outcome of Arrhythmic Mitral Valve Prolapse.

Mitral Valve Prolapse and Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Case Report and Literature Review

It is emphasized once again that it is especially important to be able to timely identify patients with mitral regurgitation who are at increased risk of sudden cardiac death so that immediate and effective treatment can be offered.

Mitral Annular Disjunction Assessed Using CMR Imaging



Natural History of Asymptomatic Mitral Valve Prolapse in the Community

Clinical and echocardiographic characteristics allow separation of the majority of patients with excellent prognosis from subsets of patients displaying, during follow-up, high morbidity or even excess mortality as direct a consequence of MVP.

Prevalence and clinical outcome of mitral-valve prolapse.

The prevalence of mitral-valve prolapse in the general population, as diagnosed with the use of current two-dimensional echocardiographic criteria, was lower than previously reported.

Ventricular Tachycardia Originating From the Posterior Papillary Muscle in the Left Ventricle: A Distinct Clinical Syndrome

A distinct syndrome of VT arising from the base of the posterior papillary muscle in the LV by a nonreentrant mechanism is presented and irrigated ablation may be necessary for long-term success.

Arrhythmic Mitral Valve Prolapse and Sudden Cardiac Death

Comparison-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance may help to identify in vivo this concealed substrate for risk stratification of ventricular electric instability, an underestimated cause of arrhythmic SCD in young adult women.
