Example text

The length of the murmur correlates with the severity of stenosis. The murmur undergoes presystolic accentuation due to atrial contribution to ventricular filling. In mild MS, the murmur may be only presystolic. If MS is associated with atrial fibrillation the S1 is variable in intensity due to variable duration of diastole. Also, presystolic accentuation is lost due to lack of atrial contribution to ventricular filling. Presystolic accentuation is also absent in a calcified valve and after commissurotomy.

Complications of MS are pulmonary congestion, respiratory infections, hemoptysis, right heart failure and systemic thrombo-embolism due to atrial fibrillation associated with left atrial thrombus. 2: Causes of mitral stenosis • Rheumatic heart disease (commonest) • Congenital parachute valve • Mitral annular calcification • Connective tissue disorder • Hurler’s mucopolysaccharidosis 27 28 Section 2 Mitral Valve Diseases PERTINENT INVESTIGATIONS Since rheumatic heart disease is the predominant cause of mitral stenosis, all patients who are febrile should be investigated for rheumatic fever, infective endocarditis and respiratory tract infection.

Diuretics reduce pulmonary congestion, especially in patients with associated mitral or aortic regurgitation. Rate control with digoxin, beta-blocker or verapamil improves left ventricular diastolic filling, in patients who are in sinus rhythm and controls the ventricular response, in whom the rhythm is atrial fibrillation. Since atrial fibrillation in patients with mitral stenosis is associated with a high risk of thrombo-embolism, these patients should also be on a long-term oral anticoagulant agent like warfarin.
