SAMPRAPTI – AYURVEDIC PATHOGENESIS OF MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE  

Vyana vata is a type of vata that controls the movements of the heart and so is the case of valvular disorders. It can be assumed that the pericardium is developed from Meda, myocardium from Mamasa and endocardium from Rasa and Rakta. Retention of vitiated rasaand raktacirculated in the endocardium may gradually develop valvular inflammation which in due course turns to another state of infection and ultimately in state developing Krimis. If this state continues for a prolonged period, due to mamsadusti, valves become degenerate and valvular disorders as stenosis and regurgitation occur. The characteristic feature of valvular heart disease is the presence of a murmur.
