Survival characteristics and prognostic variables of dogs with mitral regurgitation attributable to myxomatous
Recent study has focused on the biomechanics of the mitral valve, and the possible implications of myxomatous
degeneration (20, 42).

cellular proliferations with sparse collagen fibers consistent with myxoma.
For that reason, total excision of myxomatous
ovarian tumors together with the adnexal structures was advised.
These findings were consistent with a diagnosis of myxomatous
mitral and tricuspid valves disease with a severe hemodynamic compromise.
Tumors of bones of jaw include odontogenic tumors, osteoma, fibroma, fibrosarcoma and myxomatous
degeneration (connective tissue deterioration) is one of its main characteristics, another being that the leaflet enters the atrium, which in extreme cases, can cause mitral regurgitation.
It may be completely myxomatous
tissue or varying proportions of myxomatous
and fibrous tissue.
The cause of mitral regurgitation was rheumatic in all patients, with no congenital myxomatous
, infective or ischemic cases.
Histological examination of the bioprosthetic valve revealed fibrosis, inflammatory cell infiltration, and myxomatous
A 53-year-old male with history of prolapse and discrete myxomatous
degeneration of the anterior mitral valve leaflet, mild-to-moderate aortic insufficiency, and midsystolic mitral regurgitation presented fever, nocturnal hyperhidrosis, myalgia, and anorexia during a period of approximately 15 days, without significant weight loss.

tumor arising in the adventitia of the left external artery; case report," Br J Surg, vol.
The center of the neoplasm had undergone extensive necrosis, and the myxomatous
matrix was admixed with grey-brown globular material.
H&E staining revealed that myxoma cells dispersed in myxoid matrix within myxomatous
areas (Figure 1(a), Supplemental Figure 1 in Supplementary Material available online at http://dx.doi.org/ 10.1155/2016/2059584).
mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is the most common indication for mitral valve surgery due to severe mitral regurgitation (MR).
