Mitral chordal-leaflet-myocardial interactions in mitral valve prolapse.


BACKGROUND The submitral apparatus maintains annular-papillary continuity and myocardial geometry. In mitral valve prolapse (MVP), elongated chords and redundant leaflets can interact at the region of myocardial attachment, leading to apparent discordant motion of the basal inferolateral wall. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that basal… (More)
