Clinical Use

Predict procedural outcome in patients  undergoing mitral valvuloplasty for mitral stenosis

More Info

Mitral Valvuloplasty Scoring is based on the following variables:
Score Findings
Leaflet Mobility
1 Highly mobile
2 Reduced mobility
3 Basal leaflet motion only
4 Minimal motion
Valve thickening
1 Near normal (4-5 mm)
2 Thickened tips
3 Entire leaflet thickened (5-8 mm)
4 Marked leaflet thickening (>8-10 mm)
1 Single area of brightness
2 Scattered areas at leaflet margins
3 Brightness extends to mid leaflets
4 Extensive leaflet brightness
Subvalvular thickening
1 Minimal chordal thickening
2 Chordal thickening up to 1/3
3 Distal third of chordae thickening
4 Extensive thickening to pap muscle
