Mitral Valve Stenosis


Mitral valve stenosis is a medical condition characterized by the narrowing of the mitral valve opening in the heart, which restricts blood flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle. This can lead to increased pressure in the left atrium, reduced cardiac output, and ultimately, heart failure. Common causes include rheumatic fever, congenital defects, and calcification of the valve.
