Rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS) is often combined with what other heart lesion?
Select Your Answer:
MS is often not a sole lesion.
Twenty five percent of patient also have other types of rheumatic heart disease.
Nearly 20% of aortic regurgitation.
The rheumatic aortic valve develops fibrotic changes that cause retraction of the aortic valve leaflets, creating central regurgitation. Rarely the valve leaflets may fuse and result in aortic stenosis.
