This represents the opening of the mitral valve. In addition, a mid-diastolic murmur is frequently present. The latter occurs as a result of turbulent flow across the stenotic valve during ventricular filling. r Mitral regurgitation: numerous disease processes can result in compromised mitral valve integrity. An acute cause arises due to rupture of the chordae tendineae following myocardial infarction.

About one-third of babies with this defect also suffer from Down’s syndrome. Surgical repair is difficult. r Ostium secundum defect. In its mildest form, there is failure of fusion between the two septa, but they still overlap (probe patency).
