MITRAL STENOSIS





Category: Circulatory System

This is the narrowing of the valve opening. It is most
common in young persons, chiefly females. The narrowing of the valve
opening may be due to thickening or hardening of the valve segments,
adhesion of their edges, thickening and contraction of the tendinous cords
of the valve ring.

Symptoms. Similar to mitral insufficiency, but they develop slower and
those symptoms of venous congestion of the lungs, liver, etc., are more
marked; bleeding from the lungs is more common.
