Progression to calcific mitral stenosis in end-stage renal disease

Am J Kidney Dis. 1995 Dec;26(6):956-9. doi: 10.1016/0272-6386(95)90062-4.


A 59-year-old man with end-stage renal disease and on hemodialysis had neither mitral stenosis nor mitral calcification on echo-Doppler examination in 1989, but had extensive mitral calcification and definite mitral stenosis on conventional and transesophageal echocardiography in 1994. The left ventricle had marked concentric hypertrophy. To our knowledge this is the first documentation of the development of calcific mitral stenosis in end-stage renal disease revealed by serial echo-Doppler studies.
