MITRAL PROLAPSE

Mitral prolapse occurs when, at closure, the mitral valve leaflets collide with one another. A bulge forms towards the left atrium.

CHRONIC MITRAL INSUFFICIENCY

When the mitral valve flowsor, in other words, has lost its seal and allows the blood of the ventricle to return to the left atrium, we have what is called mitral insufficiency. This situation can be acute (sudden) or chronic (progressive).
