Welcome to the mitral stenosis page. On this page we provide a definition, sample heart sounds and links to the training lessons available on this site.
What is mitral stenosis?
Mitral stenosis is a heart condition wherein blood flowing through the mitral valve is restricted due to the valve not fully opening.
Mitral stenosis can be diagnosed during a physical exam. As described below and in our on-line courses, mitral stenosis produces several observable heart sounds. Echocardiography and heart catheterization may also be used in diagnosis of mitral stenosis.
