Diagram of the mitral valve
The mitral valve is located in the left side of the heart, between the left atrium and left ventricle. Oxygen-rich blood flows into the left atrium from the pulmonary veins. When the left atrium
March 2019: NC State researchers strike out in genetically linking serotonin to mitral valve prolapse in MVD-affected dogs. In a March 2019 abstract, North Carolina State veterinary researchers (Brian Williams, Steven G. Friedenberg, Kathryn M. Meurs [right]) report testing
the involvement of serotonin in the development of mitral valve prolapse (MVP) in dogs. IN SHORT: Heart mitral valve disease (MVD) is the leading cause of death of cavalier King Charles spaniels throughout the world. MVD is a polygenetic disease which statistics have shown may afflict over half of all cavaliers by age 5 years and nearly all
cavaliers by age 10 years, should they survive that long. A pressure–volume diagram (or PV diagram, or volume–pressure loop) is used to describe corresponding changes in volume and pressure in a system. They are commonly used in thermodynamics, cardiovascular physiology, and respiratory physiology. PV
diagrams, originally called indicator diagrams, were developed in the 18th century as tools for understanding the efficiency of … This is a file from the Wikimedia Commons.Information from its description page there is shown below.

Basic anatomy and function of the heart The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood to all the tissues in your body through a network of blood vessels. Diagram showing a normal heart valve compared with an artificial heart valve. Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc. How the heart valves work Human heart valves are remarkable structures. These tissue-paper thin membranes attached to the heart wall constantly open and close to regulate blood flow (causing the sound of a heartbeat).

Also known as partial atrioventricular canal defect, this is a combination of two defects: 1) A malformation of the Mitral Valve (1 in diagram), the one-way valve between the left atrium and the left ventricle, or main pumping chamber of the heart.
