What is Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease?

Myxomatous mitral valve disease refers to a degenerative condition wherein there is improper closure of the mitral valve of the heart. This is due to the thickening of the valve forming small nodules on the edges of the leaflets preventing the tight closure of the valves. The mitral valve sits between the left ventricle and the left atrium of the heart.
