Left ventricular papillary muscle mass: relationship to left ventricular mass and volumes by magnetic resonance imaging.

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of papillary muscle mass on the calculation of left ventricular (LV) function and mass and to determine the relationship between papillary muscle mass with body size and sex. METHODS Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging examinations from 50 men and 50 women were randomly selected from the Multi-Ethnic Study of… (More)
