A simplified D-shaped model of the mitral annulus to facilitate CT-based sizing before transcatheter mitral valve implantation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The nonplanar, saddle-shaped structure of the mitral annulus has been well established through decades of anatomic and echocardiographic study. Its relevance for mitral annular assessment for transcatheter mitral valve implantation is uncertain. OBJECTIVE Our objectives are to define the methodology for CT-based simplified "D-shaped" mitral… (More)
