Morphological study on mitral valve chordae tendineae in the hearts of human fetuses
TLDR
Mitral valve CTs were predominantly of true type, with similar distributions among papillary muscles groups; and the false chordae that were found were more commonly fixed in the posterior papillary muscle group.
Morphology and Position of the Right Atrioventricular Valve in Relation to Right Atrial Structures
TLDR
The morphology of the RAV was described and its spatial position in relation to selected structures of the right atrium was determined, with the supero-septal commissure being the most stable point within RAV circumference.
DISPARITY IN MORPHOLOGY OF PAPILLARY MUSCLES OF THE MITRAL VALVE COMPLEX WITH SURGICAL SIGNIFICANCE
TLDR
It is indicated that no two papillary muscles out of the 50 specimens had the same size, shape or position, which can help cardiothoracic surgeons to customize surgical procedures according to the papillary muscle pattern of the individual patient.
Mitral valve repair in papillary muscle rupture.
TLDR
With advances in medical innovations in the field of transcatheter devices, these devices may serve as a bridge to recovery or treatment in the setting of acute MR due to PMR, but long-term data will be required to establish the non-inferiority of one treatment modality over the other.

Morphologic classification of the mitral papillary muscles.
TLDR
This work subjected 65 normal hearts to close scrutiny and could establish a classification based on the ways that the papillary muscles relate to the leaflets via the chordae, that is correspondence between papillary muscle sub-divisions and chordal attachment to the leaflet.
A new classification of the mitral papillary muscle.
TLDR
A classification of the left ventricular subvalvular apparatus is proposed based on the macroscopic and endoscopic investigations, which emphasizes the morphology of the apical and basal parts of papillary muscles and includes the geometrical arrangement of the chordae tendineae.
Morphological variations of papillary muscles in the mitral valve complex in human cadaveric hearts.
TLDR
It is important for scientists worldwide to study the variations in the mitral valve complex in order to ascertain the reason behind each specific architectural arrangement to enable cardiothoracic surgeons to tailor the surgical procedures according to the individual papillary muscle pattern.

TLDR
This review examines the component parts to provide the background for a better understanding of the mitral valve as seen in cross sectional anatomy and highlights pertinent features of its anomalies.
Variations in the Papillary Muscles of the Normal Mitral Valve and their Surgical Relevance
TLDR
The papillary muscles of the mitral valve were studied in 100 human autopsy hearts collected at random and the relevance of chordopapiliary variations in rheumatic heart disease, reparative procedures, papillary muscle dysfunction,Mitral valve prolapse, mitral Valve replacement, and use of mitral valves homograft for mitral/tricuspid replacement is discussed.
Mitral leaflet anatomy revisited.
Mitral valve basal chordae: comparative anatomy and terminology.
Morphology of the Human Mitral Valve: II. The Valve Leaflets
TLDR
Fifty normal mitral valves from adults were studied and partitioning the mitral valvular tissue into anterior and posterior leaflets found that rough and clear zones can be defined on the anterior leaflet and rough, clear, and basal zones on the posterior leaflet.
