Arteriolar Hyalinosis – Causes Symptoms and Ayurvedic Treatment


It is a form of cardiovascular disease which involves the  hardening of arteries of heart   and elasticity of arterioles that get lost  and the  small arteries and is associated with hypertension and endocrine disorders. Types of arteriolar hyalinosis  include the  hyaline arteriolosclerosis and hyperplastic arteriolosclerosis which are both involved with vessel  and mostly  luminal narrowing that may cause downstream ischemic injuries . These diseases are very common in today’s era due to sedentary lifestyle and changed food habits of people. In this article we will discuss all about this disease in detail and talk about ayurvedic treatment also.

Arteriolar Hyalinosis


This arteriolar hyalinosis is a disease of arteries which is frequently encountered in elderly patients. Whether normotensive or hypertensive but is more generalised and more severe in patients with generalized and more severe in patients with hypertension. The condition is also seen commonly in diabetes and forms part of the microangiography characteristic of diabetic disease. Whatever the clinical setting, the vascular lesion consists of homogenous, pink, hyaline thickening of the walls of arterioles with loss of underlying structural detail and with narrowing of the vessel lumen.

Under the electron microscope irregular thickening of basement membrane can be visualized and there is deposition of amorphous extracellular substance within the vessel wall. Often the smooth muscle cells are trapped within these deposits. Intimal and medical collagenization adds to the  hyaline changes of the arteriole walls. Presumably the chronic hydrodynamic stress of hypertension or a metabolic stress in diabetes accentuates endothelial injury, thus resulting in leakage and hyaline deposition. Whatever the pathogenesis, the narrowing of the arteriolar lumina causes impairment of the blood supply to affect organs, particularly well exemplified in the kidneys.

Thus hyaline arteriolosclerosis is a major morphological characteristic of nephrosclerosis in which the arteriolar narrowing causes diffuse renal ischemia and symmetrical contraction of the kidney . The hyperplastic type of arteriosclerosis is generally related to more acute or severe elevations of blood pressure and is therefore characteristic of malignant hypertension. This form of of arteriolar disease can be identified under the light microscope by virtue of its onion skin, concentric, laminated thickening of the walls of arterioles with progressive narrowing of the lumina.


Following are the causes of this disease

The Lesions which are  developed  in the arteries  reflect leakage of plasma components across the  vascular endothelium and excessive extracellular matrix production by smooth muscle cells which is usually secondary to hypertension. The  narrowing of the lumen of the artery decreases the renal blood flow and hence glomerular filtration rate leading to increased renin secretion and a perpetuating cycle with increasing blood pressure and decreasing kidney function.

Hyperplastic arteriolosclerosis

Arteriosclerosis  which  involves a very  narrow lumen. The arteries are accompanied by the fibrinoid necrosis due to hyperplastic and hypertension changes These types of changes are very prominent in the kidney and can lead to ischemia and acute kidney failures.


Following are the sign and symptoms regarding this disease

  1. Chest pain or any type of pressure that occurs with exercise or any kind of physical work
  2. Shortness of breath and fatigue this symptoms is more often present in old age pateints and is most likely occur with the pressure in left atrium and lungs
  3. Syncope fainting or passing out may affects the patients of this disease it occurs with the irregular heart rhythms and abnormal response of blood vessels and walls of heart abnormal response of blood vessels during exercise
  4. Palpitations fluttering in the chest due to abnormal heart rhythms such as atrial fibrillation or tachycardia


Following are the diagnostic method for this disease

  1. Medical history
  2. Physical examination
  3. Tests include echo,chest x-rays,MRI imaging


Medications in this disease often given for to treat symptoms and prevent further complications medications such as beta blockers and calcium channel blockers that helps to relax the heart muscles and as well as vessels other medications are given to control heart rate decrease the arrhythmias antibiotic medications may also be prescribed to reduce the risk factor of infections

Treatment of Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease in Ayurveda


Mitral valve prolapse is a type of heart valve disease that affects the valve between the left heart chambers. Heart disease develops when the arteries that supply blood to the heart become clogged with plaque and cause them to harden and narrow. Other kinds of heart problems when the heart may not pump enough blood causes heart failure. Some may have signs of indigestion, exercise intolerance that can not perform activity normally. In heart disease it doesn’t get enough blood supply to provide oxygen to the muscles especially during exercise. When coronary arteries get blocked due to plaque it ruptures and causes clot then blood supply of the heart is lost causing heart muscles to die. In this disease we are going to discuss its signs, symptoms, treatment and its ayurvedic aspect in detail.


Myxomatous mitral disease is the most common form of valvular heart disease. The flaps of the mitral valve are floppy which bulge backwards into the heart’s left upper chamber when the heart squeezes. When this prolapse causes blood to leak backwards developing a condition known as mitral valve regurgitation. It is commonly known as Barlow syndrome, Click murmur syndrome, Floppy disease, Billowing mitral valve syndrome. It is a common disease which is completely harmless.

The mitral valve is the door that connects the left atrium to the left ventricle, and these chambers are responsible for collecting oxygen rich blood and then pumping to the whole body. The leaflets are responsible for opening and shutting with each heartbeat to manage blood flow. But in this disease there is abnormality in leaflets and chordae causing the valve floppiness which causes mitral valve prolapse. Myxomatous is usually benign but complications include endocarditis, chordal rupture. Some patients experience chest pain, dyspnea, dizziness, and include crisp mid systolic which is followed by late systolic murmur if regurgitation is present.   

Mitral Valve Prolapse


  • Heart is the leading cause of death.
  • One person dies every 34 seconds in United states from cardiovascular disease
  • Mitral valve prolapse is caused due to weakness in the tissue.
  • If mitral valve leaflets do not form tight seals upon closure it causes heart valve disease.
  • Mitral valve prolapse causes 2 conditions – Mitral valve stenosis and Mitral valve regurgitation.
  • Women above 50 year of age should be careful as they are more prone to develop this disease.
  • Two distinct sounds can detect mitral valve prolapse
  • Heart attacks and rheumatic can further damage mitral valve leaflets.


  1. When there is bulging of the valve blood leaks backwards causing mitral valve regurgitation.
  2.  Mitral valve prolapse is caused by valve tissue weakness called myxomatous degeneration.
  3. Marfan syndrome – is an inherited disorder that affects connective tissue, fibres which support organs and other structure of the body. Most commonly affects the heart, eyes, and blood vessels.
  4. Loeys Dietz syndrome- is a connective tissue disorder with hypertelorism (widely spaced eye), bifid uvula.


  • Irregular heart beat
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath during exercise and lying down
  • Chest pain
  • Migraines
  • Orthostatic hypotension (BP falls down when patient stands up)
  • Syncope
  • Benign arrhythmias (atrial premature beats)
  • Ventricular premature beats


  1. Echocardiography
  2. Transthoracic echocardiogram
  3. Transeseophageal echocardiogram
  4. Chest X ray
  5. Cardiac catheterization
  6. Exercise and stress test


  1. It is usually benign but myxomatous degeneration of the valve leads to MR.
  2.  In patients with severe MR there is incidence of left atrial enlargement, arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation), stroke, endocarditis, stroke which further need for valve replacement.


  • Sometimes patients don’t need any treatment for mitral valve prolapse but in mild form beta blockers are prescribed. As beta blockers relax the vessels and slow down heart rate.
  • In atrial fibrillation anticoagulants (blood thinners) are given, as in atrial fibrillation there is a risk of blood clots and strokes.
  • Antibiotics are given to prevent heart infection known as infective endocarditis.
  • Diuretics to remove salt and water through urine and reduce blood pressure.
  • Antiarrhythmics are given to reduce the irregular heart rhythms.
  • In mitral valve prolapse two surgery are done

Mitral valve repair the surgeons take out the excess tissue from the valve which is prolapsed so that flaps can be closed tightly. Cords are also removed to support the valves.

Mitral valve replacement is done when mitral valve repair is not possible. In this surgery the mitral valve is removed and replaced with a mechanical valve made from cow, pig heart. Sometimes a heart catheter is also done to place a replacement valve into a biological valve which is known as valve in valve procedure.

Replacement and repair surgery are often open surgery techniques which are minimally invasive and percutaneous.


  1. Build an healthy lifestyle  and exercise daily
  2. Quit tobacco and smoking
  3. Heart building eating plans must be followed such as low fat and fat free dairy products, avoid taking saturated and trans fat, excess salt and sugar.
  4. Maintain a healthy weight
  5. Blood pressure and diabetes must be in control

Hrid roga means cardiac disorder, due to change in diet and style the incidence of heart disorder is increasing day by day. Ayurveda is serving society by cure and prevention (swasthya rakshanam) to prevent heart disease. To assess ahara, dincharya, vihara, ritucharya, rasayan is described to play an important role in heart diseases. According to Acharya Sushrutha suppression of natural urge, intake of ushana, rukshana, moves to hridya which involves rakta. In this disease due to intake of mithya ahara vihara agnimandya is caused which further causes saam rasa dhatu (hypercholesterolemia) and due to sama rasa dhatu sroto avrodh and dhamniparticharya (Atherosclerosis, obstruction of arteries) occurs which further results in hridya rogas.
