Evaluation of left ventricular posterior wall movement after open mitral commissurotomy by echocardiogram: with reference to the effect of papilloplasty.


Left ventricular posterior wall movement in 20 patients with mitral stenosis (MS) was measured using M-mode echocardiogram in order to evaluate the improvement of myocardial function after open mitral commissurotomy (OMC) and compared between the cases with (10 patients) and without (10 patients) papilloplasty. The maximum left ventricular end-diastolic… (More)
