Studies auricular thrombosis in mitral stenosis by researchers from Madrid, Spain. Development of arterial embolism as a complication of mitral stenosis; Impact of the apparent lack of correlation between the absence of preoperative embolic complications as symptoms of thrombotic activity and the discovery of recent macroscopic thrombosis during operation; Influence of age and the hemodynamic condition of patients on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

    Background -- Abnormal flow patterns in the left atrium in atrial fibrillation or mitral stenosis are associated with an increased risk of thrombosis and systemic embolisation; the characteristics of normal atrial flow that avoid stasis have not been well defined. Objectives -- To present a...

  • Free-floating left atrial thrombus complicating mitral stenosis. Awamleh, Paula; González, Oscar; Luquero, Francisco // European Journal of Echocardiography;Dec2006, Vol. 7 Issue 6, p418 

    Abstract: Free-floating thrombus is a rare disorder that usually occurs in the setting of a dilated left atrium. It is an important condition because it can produce sudden death by obstructing the mitral orifice or cause embolic events. Early diagnosis and surgical treatment are mandatory.

  • Transient total occlusion of the mitral valve orifice by a free-floating left atrial ball thrombus. Alyan, Omer; Ozdemir, Ozcan; Kacmaz, Fehmi; Ozeke, Ozcan; Tufekcioglu, Omaç // European Journal of Echocardiography;Dec2006, Vol. 7 Issue 6, p420 

    Abstract: In patients with mitral stenosis (MS), a free-floating ball thrombus in the left atrium (LA) is a very rare clinical manifestation, but has potentially catastrophic consequences such as fatal systemic emboli or total obstruction of the narrowed mitral valve orifice, often resulting in...

  • Increased Systemic and Regional Coagulation Activity in Patients with Mitral Stenosis and Sinus Rhythm. Atak, Ramazan; Yetkin, Ertan; Yetkin, Ozkan; Avaz, Selime; Ileri, Mehmet; Senen, Kubilay; Turhan, Hasan; Erbay, Ali Riza; Cehreli, Seng�l // Angiology;Sep/Oct2003, Vol. 54 Issue 5, p593 

    A hypercoagulable state has been reported in patients with mitral stenosis (MS) and sinus rhythm (SR). However it has been suggested that the coagulation activity may be increased only within the left atrium in MS, with normal peripheral blood levels. The aim of the present study was to assess...

  • Giant Left Atrium--A Case Report. Gould, Lawrence A.; Betzu, Robert; Yang, David Chang-Sing; Patel, Devayani // Angiology;Jan1991, Vol. 42 Issue 1, p52 

    A seventy-seven-year old woman, with mitral stenosis, presented with cardiomegaly evident on her chest roentgenogram. The cardiac enlargement was due to a giant left atrium that distorted the cardiac structures. An echocardiogram and a first-pass nuclear angiogram were able to delineate the huge...

  • TIMING OF MITRAL VALVE SURGERY. Enrique-Sarano, Maurice // Heart;Jan2002, Vol. 87 Issue 1, p79 

    Mitral valve surgery has changed considerably in the past decades and is now indicated mostly for pure or predominant mitral regurgitation. This is the result of the regression of rheumatic disease, of the efficacy of mitral balloon valvuloplasty for mitral stenosis, and of the aging of the...

    Cor triatriatum sinistra (CTS) is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly. The orifice diameter on the membrane dividing left atria and pulmonary artery pressure are important determinants in the clinical course. Patients usually display symptoms mimicing mitral valve stenosis during young adult. We...

    The article presents a study that investigates the efficacy of interventional treatment for children with rheumatic mitral stenosis. Based on the results, the researchers found a much preferable technique using the Inoue balloon, a technique that has gained widespread acceptance among the...

    Anticoagulation treatment can prevent systemic embolism in patients with mitral stenosis (MS) and atrial fibrillation (AF), but this treatment is under debate if patients are in sinus rhythm. The authors aimed to determine the hemostatic changes in patients with MS and sinus rhythm. Forty-six...
