We examined 106 children with primary mitral valve prolapse (MVP) and 64 children with false tendon (FT) in the left cardiac ventricular. Among the children with MVP, was dominated I degree, which was 84,9% and II degree - 15.1%, respectively. The auscultative phenomena in children with these types of small heart anomalies (SHA) were studied. It was found that for most children with MVP and FT, late systolic and mesosystolic murmurs were most common. The combination of mesosystolic clicks and late systolic murmurs was only heard in children with MVP. In last, it was noted that, most often, at the second degree, mesosystolic and late systolic murmurs and their simultaneous combination are more frequent than in the I degree. When analyzing the dependence of these auscultatory phenomena on mitral regurgitation (MR), it was noted that late systolic and mesodiastolic murmur and the corresponding click are practically independent of the presence or absence of MR, but the combination of both noises is somewhat more characteristic for children with MR.
