Development of an in vitro model of functional mitral valve regurgitation
MetadataShow full item record
Functional or ischemic mitral regurgitation (FMR) is a common sequelae to various cardiomyopathies which result in altered cardiac geometry secondary to ventricular remodeling. The causative architectural changes are typified by apical tethering of the mitral valve leaflets by ventricular dilation and papillary muscle repositioning, and is usually accompanied by annular dilation and mitral valve leaflet malcoaptation. The resultant mitral regurgitation (MR) and consequent volume overload contributes to further ventricular remodeling and perpetuation of the clinical scenario. The present mainstay ...
