Mitral valve prolapse
It occurs when a right to left shunt becomes left to right due to a build-up of pressure on the left side of the heart.
It is due to failure of the aorticopulmonary septum to spiral.
It is due to lack or aorticopulmonary septum formation.
An initial left to right shunt becomes right to left due to increased pulmonary blood flow and eventual right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH).
