BACKGROUND Better understanding of the precise 3-dimensional geometric changes of the mitral valvular-ventricular complex in chronic ischemic mitral regurgitation (CIMR) is needed in order to devise better surgical repair techniques. We hypothesized that changes after inferior myocardial infarction would be different in hearts that developed CIMR compared with those that did not. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-four sheep underwent coronary snare and marker placement (annulus, papillary muscles… CONTINUE READING
