Posterior papillary muscle anchoring affects remote myofiber stress and pump function: finite element analysis.


BACKGROUND The role of posterior papillary muscle anchoring (PPMA) in the management of chronic ischemic mitral regurgitation (CIMR) is controversial. We studied the effect of anchoring point direction and relocation displacement on left ventricular (LV) regional myofiber stress and pump function. METHODS Previously described finite element models of… (More)
