Papillary muscle repositioning may result in more favorable left ventricular remodeling compared with complete retention of the mitral subvalvular apparatus during mitral valve replacement. It confers a significant early and late advantage by causing significant reductions in the left ventricular chamber volume, sphericity index, and systolic performance.
