The term degenerative mitral valve disease encompasses a broad spectrum of conditions in which dysplastic or infiltrative changes in tissue morphology cause elongation or rupture of the mitral valve chordae producing leaflet prolapse and/or mitral annular dilatation resulting in mitral regurgitation. Conditions responsible for degenerative mitral disease include Barlow’s disease, fibroelastic deficiency, and Marfan’s syndrome. Mitral valve prolapse is a common condition affecting up to 3% of… CONTINUE READING
