Three-dimensional dynamic geometry of the normal canine mitral annulus and papillary muscles.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Despite an incomplete knowledge of the geometry and dynamics of the mitral annulus (MA), papillary muscle (PM), and the chordae tendineac, chordal-sparing MVR is popular. METHODS AND RESULTS The systolic reduction in three-dimensional distance between each PM tip and eight MA sites (DT-A) was measured in nine normal closed-chest dogs by use of… (More)
