The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
A benign tumor of fibrous or fully developed connective tissue.
Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.
Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
A conical fibro-serous sac surrounding the HEART and the roots of the great vessels (AORTA; VENAE CAVAE; PULMONARY ARTERY). Pericardium consists of two sacs: the outer fibrous pericardium and the inner serous pericardium. The latter consists of an outer parietal layer facing the fibrous pericardium, and an inner visceral layer (epicardium) resting next to the heart, and a pericardial cavity between these two layers.
The tendinous cords that connect each cusp of the two atrioventricular HEART VALVES to appropriate PAPILLARY MUSCLES in the HEART VENTRICLES, preventing the valves from reversing themselves when the ventricles contract.
A central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic with actions and uses similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. It has been used most frequently in the treatment of obesity.

The mitral valve is located between the left atrium and the left ventricle, and it is responsible for regulating blood flow between these two chambers. When the mitral valve does not close properly, blood can leak back into the left atrium, causing a range of symptoms and complications.

There are several causes of mitral valve insufficiency, including:

* Degenerative changes: The mitral valve can wear out over time due to degenerative changes, such as calcium buildup or tearing of the valve flaps.
* Heart muscle disease: Diseases such as cardiomyopathy can cause the heart muscle to weaken and stretch, leading to mitral valve insufficiency.
* Endocarditis: Infections of the inner lining of the heart can damage the mitral valve and lead to insufficiency.
* Heart defects: Congenital heart defects, such as a bicuspid valve or a narrow valve opening, can lead to mitral valve insufficiency.

Treatment for mitral valve insufficiency depends on the severity of the condition and may include medications to manage symptoms, lifestyle changes, or surgery to repair or replace the damaged valve. In some cases, catheter-based procedures may be used to repair the valve without open-heart surgery.

Overall, mitral valve insufficiency is a common condition that can have a significant impact on quality of life if left untreated. It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen over time.

There are several causes of tricuspid valve insufficiency, including:

1. Congenital heart defects: Tricuspid valve insufficiency can be present at birth due to abnormal development of the tricuspid valve.
2. Rheumatic fever: This is an inflammatory condition that can damage the tricuspid valve and lead to insufficiency.
3. Endocarditis: Bacterial infection of the inner lining of the heart, including the tricuspid valve, can cause damage and lead to insufficiency.
4. Heart failure: As the heart fails, the tricuspid valve may become less effective, leading to insufficiency.
5. Cardiac tumors: Tumors in the heart can put pressure on the tricuspid valve and cause insufficiency.
6. Congenital heart disease: Tricuspid valve insufficiency can be present at birth due to abnormal development of the tricuspid valve.
7. Chronic pulmonary disease: This can lead to increased pressure in the right side of the heart, causing tricuspid valve insufficiency.

Symptoms of tricuspid valve insufficiency may include fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling in the legs and feet, and chest pain. Diagnosis is typically made through echocardiography, electrocardiography, and cardiac catheterization.

Treatment options for tricuspid valve insufficiency depend on the severity of the condition and may include:

1. Medications: Diuretics, ACE inhibitors, and beta blockers may be used to manage symptoms and slow progression of the disease.
2. Surgery: In severe cases, surgical repair or replacement of the tricuspid valve may be necessary.
3. Transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement: This is a minimally invasive procedure in which a new tricuspid valve is inserted through a catheter in the femoral vein and placed in the heart.
4. Watchful waiting: In mild cases, doctors may choose to monitor the condition closely without immediate treatment.

There are several types of heart valve diseases, including:

1. Mitral regurgitation: This occurs when the mitral valve does not close properly, allowing blood to flow backward into the left atrium.
2. Aortic stenosis: This occurs when the aortic valve becomes narrowed or blocked, restricting blood flow from the left ventricle into the aorta.
3. Pulmonary stenosis: This occurs when the pulmonary valve becomes narrowed or blocked, restricting blood flow from the right ventricle into the pulmonary artery.
4. Tricuspid regurgitation: This occurs when the tricuspid valve does not close properly, allowing blood to flow backward into the right atrium.
5. Heart valve thickening or calcification: This can occur due to aging, rheumatic fever, or other conditions that cause inflammation in the heart.
6. Endocarditis: This is an infection of the inner lining of the heart, which can damage the heart valves.
7. Rheumatic heart disease: This is a condition caused by rheumatic fever, which can damage the heart valves and cause scarring.
8. Congenital heart defects: These are heart defects that are present at birth, and can affect the heart valves as well as other structures of the heart.

Symptoms of heart valve disease can include shortness of breath, fatigue, swelling in the legs or feet, and chest pain. Treatment options for heart valve disease depend on the specific condition and can range from medication to surgery or other procedures.

Aortic valve stenosis can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, calcium buildup, or congenital heart defects. It is typically diagnosed through echocardiography or cardiac catheterization. Treatment options for aortic valve stenosis include medications to manage symptoms, aortic valve replacement surgery, or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), which is a minimally invasive procedure.

In TAVR, a thin tube is inserted through a blood vessel in the leg and guided to the heart, where it delivers a new aortic valve. This can be performed through a small incision in the chest or through a catheter inserted into the femoral artery.

While TAVR has become increasingly popular for treating aortic valve stenosis, it is not suitable for all patients and requires careful evaluation to determine the best course of treatment. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of TAVR with a healthcare provider to determine the appropriate treatment plan for each individual patient.

There are several causes of aortic valve insufficiency, including:

1. Congenital heart defects
2. Rheumatic fever
3. Endocarditis (infection of the inner lining of the heart)
4. Aging and wear and tear on the valve
5. Trauma to the chest
6. Connective tissue disorders such as Marfan syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

Symptoms of aortic valve insufficiency can include fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling in the legs and feet, and chest pain. Diagnosis is typically made through a combination of physical examination, echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart), electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), and chest X-ray.

Treatment options for aortic valve insufficiency depend on the severity of the condition and may include:

1. Medications to manage symptoms such as heart failure, high blood pressure, and arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms)
2. Lifestyle modifications such as a healthy diet and regular exercise
3. Repair or replacement of the aortic valve through surgery. This may involve replacing the valve with an artificial one, or repairing the existing valve through a procedure called valvuloplasty.
4. In some cases, catheter-based procedures such as balloon valvuloplasty or valve replacement may be used.

It is important to note that aortic valve insufficiency can lead to complications such as heart failure, arrhythmias, and endocarditis, which can be life-threatening if left untreated. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen over time.

There are several types of MVP, including:

1. Primary MVP: This is the most common type of MVP and occurs when the mitral valve leaflets are too long and prolapse into the left atrium.
2. Secondary MVP: This type of MVP occurs when another condition, such as a heart murmur or an enlarged heart, causes the mitral valve to prolapse.
3. Functional MVP: This type of MVP is caused by abnormal functioning of the mitral valve rather than any physical defect.
4. Rheumatic MVP: This type of MVP is caused by inflammation of the mitral valve due to rheumatic fever.

The symptoms of MVP can vary in severity and may include:

* Chest pain or discomfort
* Shortness of breath
* Palpitations or fluttering in the chest
* Fatigue
* Dizziness or lightheadedness
* Coughing up pink, foamy fluid (in severe cases)

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. MVP can be diagnosed with an echocardiogram, which uses sound waves to create images of the heart. Treatment options for MVP include medications to control symptoms, lifestyle changes such as regular exercise and a healthy diet, and in severe cases, surgery to repair or replace the mitral valve.

In conclusion, mitral valve prolapse is a relatively common condition that can cause a range of symptoms. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms so that proper diagnosis and treatment can be provided. With appropriate treatment, most people with MVP can lead normal, active lives.

Causes and risk factors:

The most common cause of bacterial endocarditis is a bacterial infection that enters the bloodstream and travels to the heart. This can occur through various means, such as:

* Injecting drugs or engaging in other risky behaviors that allow bacteria to enter the body
* Having a weakened immune system due to illness or medication
* Having a previous history of endocarditis or other heart conditions

Some common risk factors for developing rheumatic heart disease include:

* Previous exposure to group A streptococcus bacteria, which can cause rheumatic fever
* Family history of rheumatic heart disease
* Poor living conditions or overcrowding, which can increase the risk of exposure to group A streptococcus bacteria
* Malnutrition or a diet low in certain nutrients, such as vitamin D and iron.

Symptoms of endocarditis may include fever, fatigue, joint pain, and swelling in the legs and feet. In some cases, the condition can lead to serious complications, such as heart valve damage, stroke, or death.

Treatment for endocarditis typically involves antibiotics to clear the infection. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or replace damaged heart tissue. Preventive measures include good dental hygiene, avoiding risky behaviors such as injecting drugs, and keeping wounds clean and covered.

Endocarditis is a serious condition that can have long-term consequences if left untreated. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential to prevent complications and ensure the best possible outcome for patients.

There are several types of heart valve prolapse, including:

1. Mitral valve prolapse (MVP): This is the most common type of heart valve prolapse and occurs when the mitral valve bulges into the left atrium.
2. Tricuspid valve prolapse (TVP): This occurs when the tricuspid valve bulges into the right atrium.
3. Pulmonary valve prolapse (PVP): This occurs when the pulmonary valve bulges into the right ventricle.
4. Aortic valve prolapse (AVP): This is a rare condition that occurs when the aortic valve bulges into the left ventricle.

Heart valve prolapse can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

1. Genetics: Many people with heart valve prolapse have a family history of the condition.
2. Heart defects present at birth: Some people may be born with heart defects that increase their risk of developing heart valve prolapse.
3. Heart disease: Conditions such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, and heart failure can damage the heart valves and lead to prolapse.
4. Age-related wear and tear: As people age, their heart valves can become worn out and less effective, leading to prolapse.
5. Infections: Endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of the heart, can damage the heart valves and lead to prolapse.

Treatment for heart valve prolapse depends on the severity of the condition and may include:

1. Medications: Drugs such as beta blockers, diuretics, and anticoagulants may be prescribed to manage symptoms such as high blood pressure, fluid buildup, and blood clots.
2. Lifestyle changes: Patients with heart valve prolapse may need to make lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and avoiding strenuous activities.
3. Surgery: In severe cases of heart valve prolapse, surgery may be necessary to repair or replace the damaged valve.
4. Transcatheter procedures: Minimally invasive procedures such as balloon valvuloplasty or valve replacement can be performed through a catheter inserted into a blood vessel in the leg.

It is important for individuals with heart valve prolapse to follow their doctor's recommendations and attend regular check-ups to monitor their condition and prevent complications. With proper treatment, many people with heart valve prolapse can lead active and fulfilling lives.

There are several different types of calcinosis, each with its own unique causes and symptoms. Some common forms of calcinosis include:

1. Dystrophic calcinosis: This type of calcinosis occurs in people with muscular dystrophy, a group of genetic disorders that affect muscle strength and function. Dystrophic calcinosis can cause calcium deposits to form in the muscles, leading to muscle weakness and wasting.
2. Metastatic calcinosis: This type of calcinosis occurs when cancer cells spread to other parts of the body and cause calcium deposits to form. Metastatic calcinosis can occur in people with a variety of different types of cancer, including breast, lung, and prostate cancer.
3. Idiopathic calcinosis: This type of calcinosis occurs for no apparent reason, and the exact cause is not known. Idiopathic calcinosis can affect people of all ages and can cause calcium deposits to form in a variety of different tissues.
4. Secondary calcinosis: This type of calcidosis occurs as a result of an underlying medical condition or injury. For example, secondary calcinosis can occur in people with kidney disease, hyperparathyroidism (a condition in which the parathyroid glands produce too much parathyroid hormone), or traumatic injuries.

Treatment for calcinosis depends on the underlying cause and the severity of the condition. In some cases, treatment may involve managing the underlying disease or condition that is causing the calcium deposits to form. Other treatments may include medications to reduce inflammation and pain, physical therapy to improve mobility and strength, and surgery to remove the calcium deposits.

1. Infection: Bacterial or viral infections can develop after surgery, potentially leading to sepsis or organ failure.
2. Adhesions: Scar tissue can form during the healing process, which can cause bowel obstruction, chronic pain, or other complications.
3. Wound complications: Incisional hernias, wound dehiscence (separation of the wound edges), and wound infections can occur.
4. Respiratory problems: Pneumonia, respiratory failure, and atelectasis (collapsed lung) can develop after surgery, particularly in older adults or those with pre-existing respiratory conditions.
5. Cardiovascular complications: Myocardial infarction (heart attack), cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiac failure can occur after surgery, especially in high-risk patients.
6. Renal (kidney) problems: Acute kidney injury or chronic kidney disease can develop postoperatively, particularly in patients with pre-existing renal impairment.
7. Neurological complications: Stroke, seizures, and neuropraxia (nerve damage) can occur after surgery, especially in patients with pre-existing neurological conditions.
8. Pulmonary embolism: Blood clots can form in the legs or lungs after surgery, potentially causing pulmonary embolism.
9. Anesthesia-related complications: Respiratory and cardiac complications can occur during anesthesia, including respiratory and cardiac arrest.
10. delayed healing: Wound healing may be delayed or impaired after surgery, particularly in patients with pre-existing medical conditions.

It is important for patients to be aware of these potential complications and to discuss any concerns with their surgeon and healthcare team before undergoing surgery.

Myocardial ischemia can be caused by a variety of factors, including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking. It can also be triggered by physical exertion or stress.

There are several types of myocardial ischemia, including:

1. Stable angina: This is the most common type of myocardial ischemia, and it is characterized by a predictable pattern of chest pain that occurs during physical activity or emotional stress.
2. Unstable angina: This is a more severe type of myocardial ischemia that can occur without any identifiable trigger, and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as shortness of breath or vomiting.
3. Acute coronary syndrome (ACS): This is a condition that includes both stable angina and unstable angina, and it is characterized by a sudden reduction in blood flow to the heart muscle.
4. Heart attack (myocardial infarction): This is a type of myocardial ischemia that occurs when the blood flow to the heart muscle is completely blocked, resulting in damage or death of the cardiac tissue.

Myocardial ischemia can be diagnosed through a variety of tests, including electrocardiograms (ECGs), stress tests, and imaging studies such as echocardiography or cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Treatment options for myocardial ischemia include medications such as nitrates, beta blockers, and calcium channel blockers, as well as lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, losing weight, and exercising regularly. In severe cases, surgical procedures such as coronary artery bypass grafting or angioplasty may be necessary.

Example sentence: "The patient was diagnosed with a fibroma in her uterus and underwent surgery to have it removed."

The condition is often diagnosed using echocardiography, and treatment options include medication to regulate the heart rhythm and reduce blood pressure, or in severe cases, surgical replacement of the aortic valve may be necessary.
