Mitral valve prolapse with ventricular arrhythmias: does it carries a worse prognosis?

The stratification of arrhythmic risk, with the active search for red flags and in particular of MAD, is important to identify patients with the malignant arrhythmmic variant of MVP in whom to implement closer surveillance and possible therapeutic interventions.

A case report of arrhythmogenic mitral valve disease: still a long way to go

A case of a patient with AMVD with classic features of high arrhythmic risk but also with some unusual characteristics such as older age, male gender, and only little pronounced mitral valve billowing is presented, emphasizing the wide heterogeneity and lack of knowledge surrounding this entity.

Transthoracic echocardiography for arrhythmic mitral valve prolapse: Phenotypic characterization as first step

TTE red flags that could identify MVP patients at high risk to develop complex arrhythmias as supported by the corresponding findings of LGE‐CMR and anatomy studies are described.

Arrhythmic Mitral Valve Prolapse and Mitral Annular Disjunction: Clinical Features, Pathophysiology, Risk Stratification, and Management

The incidence of ventricular arrhythmias and SCD in patients with MVP, the association with mitral annular disjunction, mechanisms of arrh rhythmogenesis, methods for arrhythmic andSCD risk stratification, findings with multimodality imaging, and treatments for the primary and secondary prevention of SCD are summarized.

Replacement Myocardial Fibrosis in Patients With Mitral Valve Prolapse

LV replacement myocardial fibrosis is frequent in patients with MVP; is associated with mitral valve apparatus alteration, more dilated LV, MR grade, and ventricular arrhythmia; and is independently associated with cardiovascular events.

Developing a Mechanistic Approach to Sudden Death Prevention in Mitral Valve Prolapse

The clustering of cardiac morphological and electrophysiological characteristics similar to AMVP in otherwise idiopathic SCD suggests that MMVP arises when specific arrhythmia modulators allow for VF initiation and perpetuation through action potential prolongation, repolarization heterogeneity and Purkinje triggering.

Arrhythmic Mitral Valve Prolapse: Introducing an Era of Multimodality Imaging-Based Diagnosis and Risk Stratification

This work offers a comprehensive overview of the etiology and the genetic background, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and the state-of-the-art imaging-based diagnosis of mitral valve prolapse and investigates multimodality imaging features, such as alterations of anatomy and function of the mitral valves and its leaflets.

Association of Mitral Annular Disjunction With Cardiovascular Outcomes Among Patients With Marfan Syndrome.

This study suggests that MAD among patients with MFS is associated with the occurrence of arrhythmic events, a higher need for mitral valve intervention, and, amongst patients with extensive MAD, more aortic events.

Left Ventricular Remodeling in Non-syndromic Mitral Valve Prolapse: Volume Overload or Concomitant Cardiomyopathy?

Since technical specifications of imaging modalities impact the evaluation of MR severity and LV remodeling, and therefore might influence clinical decision making in these patients, this review will also discuss assessment of MVP using different Imaging modalities.



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.

Mitral Valve Prolapse, Ventricular Arrhythmias, and Sudden Death.

There is a necessity for prospective multicenter studies focusing on the prognostic role of cardiac magnetic resonance and electrophysiologic studies and on the therapeutic efficacy of targeted catheter ablation and mitral valve surgery in reducing the risk of life-threatening arrhythmias, as well as the role of implantable cardioverter defibrillators for primary prevention.

Mechanical dispersion and arrhythmic mitral valve prolapse: substrate and trigger in electrical instability

In order to better understand the physiopathological mechanism of ventricular arrhythmias in MVP, Ermakov et al investigated the possible role of mechanical dispersion by strain echocardiography for arrhythmic risk stratification in MVP.

Morphofunctional Abnormalities of Mitral Annulus and Arrhythmic Mitral Valve Prolapse

Mitral annulus disjunction is a constant feature of arrhythmic MVP with LV fibrosis and the excessive mobility of the leaflets caused by posterior systolic curling accounts for a mechanical stretch of the inferobasal wall and papillary muscles, eventually leading to myocardial hypertrophy and scarring.

Sudden death in young people with apparently isolated mitral valve prolapse.

In conclusion, apparently isolated MVP was found in nearly 10% of sudden cardiovascular fatalities in young people, and most young sudden death victims with MVP were asymptomatic females without significant mitral valve regurgitation.

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.
