Echocardiographic evaluation of mitral geometry in functional mitral regurgitation


OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the geometric changes of the mitral leaflets, local and global LV remodeling in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and varying degrees of Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR). BACKGROUND Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) occurs as a consequence of systolic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction caused by ischemic… (More)
