Mucinous valvular disease of the elderly

Myxoid valvular disease in the elderly refers to a degenerative, nonspecific and non-inflammatory heart valve disease in which the myxoid degeneration of the heart valve causes the atrioventricular valve to prolapse into the atrium in systole and the semilunar valve to prolapse into the ventricular outflow tract in diastole, with or without valve insufficiency. This myxoid degeneration can lead to multi valve prolapse. Mitral valve prolapse is the most common clinically, followed by aortic valve prolapse and tricuspid valve prolapse, and pulmonary valve prolapse is rare. This disease and its complications (tendon rupture) are common causes of valve regurgitation, and severe cases need surgical intervention.
