As per available reports about 12 relevant Journals, 15 Conferences, 9 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to mitral regurgitation and about 10 articles are being published on mitral regurgitation disease.
The mitral valve (also called the bicuspid valve) separates the upper left heart chamber from the lower left heart chamber, and helps control blood flow through the heart. During each heartbeat, the smaller upper chambers of the heart (atria) contract to push blood into the larger lower chambers (ventricles). The mitral valve opens to allow this passage of blood from the left atrium, and closes when the left ventricle is full of blood, to prevent backflow. When the valve closes, its two leaflets (flaps) normally seal the valve shut. Tendons attached to these flaps keep them taut and prevent them collapsing through to the other side.

Scope and importance:
Mitral regurgitation, in the acute and chronic decompensated states, is commonly encountered in the emergency department. An understanding of the underlying etiologies and pathophysiology of the condition is critical to direct appropriate treatment. Mitral insufficiency (MI), mitral regurgitation or mitral incompetence is a disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve does not close properly when the heart pumps out blood. It is the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle, through the mitral valve, and into the left atrium, when the left ventricle contracts, i.e. there is regurgitation of blood back into the left atrium. MI is the most common form of Valvular heart disease . Mitral valve regurgitation — or mitral regurgitation — is when your heart's mitral valve doesn't close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward in your heart. As a result, blood can't move through your heart or to the rest of your body as efficiently, making you feel tired or out of breath. Treatment of mitral valve regurgitation — also called mitral insufficiency or mitral incompetence — depends on how severe your condition is, whether it's getting worse and whether you have symptoms. For mild cases, treatment may not be necessary.
Signs of Kawasaki disease, such as a high fever and peeling skin, can be frightening. The good news is that Kawasaki disease is usually treatable, and most children recover from Kawasaki disease without serious problems. Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute febrile vasculitic syndrome of early childhood that, although it has a good prognosis with treatment, can lead to death from coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) in a very small percentage of patients. The disease affects the coronary arteries that supply oxygenated blood to the heart. If the disease affects the coronary arteries, it can lead to severe heart problems including myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), dysrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), and aneurysm (weakening and bulging of the artery wall).
Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego has received a $2.5 million challenge grant from the Gordon and Marilyn Macklin Foundation to support Kawasaki Disease (KD) research. KD is a disease of young children with 80% of the patients being under the age of 5 years. While the peak age of onset of KD in Japan is 6 to 11 months, it is somewhat higher in the United States (viz.18-24 months)(2,3,8). The condition is uncommon in infants below 3 months of age, but has been known to occur even in neonates (7). The male-to-female ratio is 1.5:1.0. Our data at Chandigarh are, however, somewhat different. We have found that almost 30% of our patients were above 5 years of age (8, 12, and 13).
Country wise analysis for occurrence of Kawasaki Disease:
England—8.39 per 100 000 children under 5 years 5
Australia—9.34 per 100 000 children under 5 years 6
Japan—239 per 100 000 children under 5 years7
Korea—134 per 100 000 children under 5 years
