Abstract

By using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in humans, we demonstrated that it is the impairment of lateral shortening between the papillary muscles, and not passive ventricular size, that governs the severity of mitral regurgitation. Loss of lateral shortening of IPMD tethers the leaflet edges and impairs their systolic closure, resulting in mitral regurgitation, even in small ventricles. Understanding the lateral dynamics of ventricular-valve interactions could aid the development of new repair techniques for ischemic mitral regurgitation.
