Caption: Narrowed heart valve. Close-up of the mitral valve of a heart that has become narrowed (stenosed) due to calcification - an accumulation of calcium salts in the valve tissue. Mitral valve stenosis may cause varied symptoms including heart failure symptoms, palpitations and chest pain. Treatment includes valve replacement or medical management. Here, it has also caused ulceration of the lining of the valve.
