BACKGROUND The mechanism by which incomplete mitral leaflet coaptation develops during ischemic mitral regurgitation is debated, with recent studies suggesting that incomplete mitral leaflet coaptation may be due to apically displaced papillary muscle tips. Yet quantitative in vivo three-dimensional mitral leaflet motion during ischemic mitral regurgitation has never been described. METHODS Radiopaque markers (sutured around the mitral anulus, to the central free mitral leaflet edges, and to… CONTINUE READING
