Chordal force distribution determines systolic mitral leaflet configuration and severity of functional mitral regurgitation. (1/118)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of the chordae tendineae force distribution on systolic mitral leaflet geometry and mitral valve competence in vitro. BACKGROUND: Functional mitral regurgitation is caused by changes in several elements of the valve apparatus. Interaction among these have to comply with the chordal force distribution defined by the chordal coapting forces (F(c)) created by the transmitral pressure difference, which close the leaflets and the chordal tethering forces (FT) pulling the leaflets apart. METHODS: Porcine mitral valves (n = 5) were mounted in a left ventricular model where leading edge chordal forces measured by dedicated miniature force transducers were controlled by changing left ventricular pressure and papillary muscle position. Chordae geometry and occlusional leaflet area (OLA) needed to cover the leaflet orifice for a given leaflet configuration were determined by two-dimensional echo and reconstructed three-dimensionally. Occlusional leaflet area was used as expression for incomplete leaflet coaptation. Regurgitant fraction (RF) was measured with an electromagnetic flowmeter. RESULTS: Mixed procedure statistics revealed a linear correlation between the sum of the chordal net forces, sigma[Fc - FT]S, and OLA with regression coefficient (minimum - maximum) beta = -115 to -65 [mm2/N]; p < 0.001 and RF (beta = -0.06 to -0.01 [%/N]; p < 0.001). Increasing FT by papillary muscle malalignment restricted leaflet mobility, resulting in a tented leaflet configuration due to an apical and posterior shift of the coaptation line. Anterior leaflet coapting forces increased due to mitral leaflet remodeling, which generated a nonuniform regurgitant orifice area. CONCLUSIONS: Altered chordal force distribution caused functional mitral regurgitation based on tented leaflet configuration as observed clinically.  (+info)

Ten-year experience of chordal replacement with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene in mitral valve repair. (2/118)

BACKGROUND: Mitral valve repair is the procedure of choice to correct mitral regurgitation (MR). Although chordal replacement with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) has been widely accepted to repair anterior mitral prolapse and other difficult situations, the long-term results of the repair and the fate of ePTFE have not been delineated. METHODS AND RESULTS: From July 1988 to April 1999, 74 patients (49 males, 25 females) aged 17 to 77 years (mean age 55. 3+/-14.8 years) underwent mitral valve repair with chordal replacement with ePTFE. The follow-up period was from 6 months to 11. 3 years (mean 4.6+/-3.2 years). The causes of MR were degenerative in 65 patients (88%) and infective in 9 (12%). Three patients had active infective endocarditis. Valve lesions were anterior in 35 patients, posterior in 10, and both anterior and posterior in 29. Various procedures for plasty of leaflets were necessary in 37 patients (50%). Atrial fibrillation was associated in 38 patients (51%), and the maze procedure has been performed in a selected group of 30 patients (41%) since July 1992. There was 1 in-hospital death (1.4%) and 3 late cardiac deaths (4.1%). More than moderate MR developed in 12 patients (17%) during the follow-up period. Three of these patients required early reoperation within 1 year due to hemolysis. Two patients underwent mitral valve replacement at 6 and 8 years after repair, respectively. The actuarial reoperation-free rates at 5 and 10 years were 94.3+/-2.8% and 81.7+/-9.1%, respectively. Sinus rhythm was restored in 21 patients (70%) with the maze procedure. There was only 1 thromboembolic episode (0. 3%/patient-y) in a patient with atrial fibrillation who did not undergo the maze procedure. Event-free survival rates as assessed by the freedom from cardiac death, thromboembolism, reoperation, and anticoagulation-related hemorrhage at 5 and 10 years were 91.3+/-3. 4% and 71.6+/-9.7%, respectively. There was no relationship between recurrent MR and the change of ePTFE. Structural analysis of the ePTFE resected during reoperation revealed no calcification and showed remaining flexibility and pliability. Protein infiltration was observed in the ePTFE, and collagenous proliferation was recognized at the site of fixation to the valve leaflet and the papillary muscle. The surface of the ePTFE was completely endothelialized, which may induce antithrombogenicity. CONCLUSIONS: The long-term durability and biological adaptation of ePTFE as artificial chordae for mitral valve repair of MR were proved for >10 years.  (+info)

Mitral valve repair in a predominantly rheumatic population. Long-term results. (3/118)

Valve repair in rheumatic patients poses special problems due to valve deformity and mixed lesions. We present our experience from January 1988 through June 1999, in this retrospective study of 818 patients (377 males). The mean age was 22.8 +/- 11.3 years (range, 2 to 70 years). The cause of mitral regurgitation was rheumatic in 718 (88%) patients, congenital in 51, myxomatous in 34, infective in 7, and ischemic in 8. Most patients (64%) were in New York Heart Association functional class III or IV. Congestive heart failure was present in 116 patients (14%). Reparative procedures included posterior collar annuloplasty (n=710), commissurotomy (n=482), cusp-level chordal shortening (n=237), cusp thinning (n=222), cleft suture (n= 166), and cusp excision/plication (n=42). Operative mortality was 4% (32 patients). Preoperative left ventricular dysfunction, presence of congestive heart failure, and advanced functional class were associated with greater mortality. Follow-up ranged from 1 to 144 months (mean, 44.9 +/- 33.2 months) and was 96% complete. Most survivors (70%) had no or trivial mitral regurgitation. Forty patients required reoperation for valve dysfunction. There were 23 (2.8%) late deaths. Actuarial, reoperation-free, and event-free survival at 11 years were 92.6% +/- 1.0%, 65.0% +/- 10%, and 38% +/- 6.0%, respectively Among the survivors, 85% were in New York Heart Association functional class I. We conclude that mitral valve repair in rheumatic patients, using current techniques, can effectively correct hemodynamic and functional abnormalities with satisfactory results.  (+info)

Anterior chordal transection impairs not only regional left ventricular function but also regional right ventricular function in mitral regurgitation. (4/118)

BACKGROUND: Preservation of annuloventricular continuity through the chordae tendinae aims to maintain left ventricular (LV) function and thus improve postoperative prognosis. This study was designed to prospectively investigate the effect of anterior chordal transection on global and regional LV and right ventricular (RV) function in mitral regurgitation (MR). METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-five patients with severe MR underwent radionuclide angiography before and after either mitral valve (MV) repair (42 patients) or replacement with anterior chordal transection (23 patients). LV and RV ejection fractions (EF) were determined at rest. Both ventricles were divided into 9 regions to analyze regional EF and the effect of anteromedial translation related to surgery. After surgery there was a significant decrease in LVEF (P=0.038) and an increase in RVEF (P=0.036). However, LVEF did not change after MV repair (63.8+/-9.9% to 62.6+/-10.3%), whereas RVEF improved (40.7+/-10.1% to 44.5+/-8.1%, P=0.027). In contrast, LVEF decreased after MV replacement (61.7+/-10.1% to 57.2+/-9.9%, P=0.03), and RVEF was unchanged (40.9+/-10.9% to 41.3+/-9.1%). LVEF 4 and 5, in the area of anterior papillary muscle insertion, were impaired after MV replacement compared with MV repair (region 4, 77.6+/-16.7% versus 87.7+/-10.8%, P=0.005, and region 5, 73.9+/-19.3% versus 89.9+/-13.1%, P<0.001). Moreover, anterior chordal transection led to a significant impairment in the apicoseptal region of the RV (RVEF 4, 50.3+/-15.6% versus 59.3+/-13.8%, P=0.02). CONCLUSIONS: Anterior chordal transection during MV replacement for MR impairs not only regional LV function but also regional RV function.  (+info)

Chordal cutting: a new therapeutic approach for ischemic mitral regurgitation. (5/118)

BACKGROUND: Mitral regurgitation (MR) conveys adverse prognosis in ischemic heart disease. Because such MR is related to increased leaflet tethering by displaced attachments to the papillary muscles (PMs), it is incompletely treated by annular reduction. We therefore addressed the hypothesis that such MR can be reduced by cutting a limited number of critically positioned chordae to the leaflet base that most restrict closure but are not required to prevent prolapse. This was tested in 8 mitral valves: a porcine in vitro pilot with PM displacement and 7 sheep with acute inferobasal infarcts studied in vivo with three-dimensional (3D) echo to quantify MR in relation to 3D valve geometry. METHODS AND RESULTS: In all 8 valves, PM displacement restricted leaflet closure, with anterior leaflet angulation at the basal chord insertion, and mild-to-moderate MR. Cutting the 2 central basal chordae reversed this without prolapse. In vivo, MR increased from 0.8+/-0.2 to 7.1+/-0.5 mL/beat after infarction and then decreased to 0.9+/-0.1 mL/beat with chordal cutting (P<0.0001); this paralleled changes in the 3D leaflet area required to cover the orifice as dictated by chordal tethering (r(2)=0.76). CONCLUSIONS: Cutting a minimum number of basal chordae can improve coaptation and reduce ischemic MR. Such an approach also suggests the potential for future minimally invasive implementation.  (+info)

Transaortic double valve replacement with total chordal preservation. (6/118)

Very few cases of transaortic double valve replacement have been reported in the literature. A 26-year-old man presented to us with severe aortic regurgitation, mitral valve thickening, and mild mitral regurgitation 6 years after he had undergone a Ross procedure and open mitral commissurotomy. At his 2nd operation, he underwent transaortic double valve replacement with total chordal preservation of the mitral apparatus. Due to recurrent rheumatic activity, this patient had experienced a recurrence of valvulopathy Because we have observed this in other young patients with rheumatic heart disease, we no longer perform the Ross procedure in such patients, especially if there is associated mitral valve disease. In selected patients with dilated aortic annulus, the transaortic approach provides excellent access for safe mitral valve replacement with total chordal preservation. The surgical technique and a brief review of the literature are presented.  (+info)

Papillary fibroelastoma of the tricuspid valve chordae with a review of the literature. (7/118)

Endothelial papillary fibroelastomas represent a rare entity in cardiac pathology that at times may be associated with embolisation, angina, and sudden death. We report on a case of a 46-year-old woman with a papillary fibroelastoma originating on the chordae of the tricuspid valve. The tumour was discovered incidentally using transthoracic two-dimensional echocardiography. The patient had an uneventful recovery and remained free of symptoms after six months.  (+info)

Anterior mitral leaflet mobility is limited by the basal stay chords. (8/118)

BACKGROUND: We hypothesize that 2 tendon-like anterior basal stay chords, which remain taut during the entire cardiac cycle, limit the motion of the anterior mitral leaflet. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sonomicrometric crystals were implanted in 6 sheep at the insertion of stay chords at anterior mitral leaflet (S1 and S2), papillary muscle tips, fibrous trigones, mitral annulus, and the tip of the anterior leaflet (AL). Distances between crystals were recorded before and after section of stay chords. During the cardiac cycle, the angle alpha between mitral annulus and AL changed by +54.2+/-12.4 degrees; the angles between mitral annulus and S1 (beta1) changed by +25.7+/-14.6 degrees, and between mitral annulus and S2 (beta2) by +20.4+/-7.8 degrees. During diastole, AL twice crossed the virtual plane formed by the stay chords: during E-wave by a maximum of 6.5 mm (mean, 2.5+/-2.2 mm) and during A-wave by a maximum of 3.2 mm (mean, 1.7+/-0.9 mm). After section of both stay chords, total anterior mitral leaflet motion increased as follows: AL, +6.9+/-3.4 degrees; S1, +13.1+/-4.4 degrees; and S2, +30.9+/-11.7 degrees (P<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Although the lateral movement of anterior mitral leaflet is limited by stay chords, the midportion moves unimpaired toward the septum, like a sail, between the 2 stay chords during diastole. A diastolic left ventricular-inflow and systolic left ventricular-outflow funnel mechanism is created. Stay chord section increased lateral anterior mitral leaflet movement.  (+info)

Chordae tendineae Definition These are string-like bands of fibrous tissue that attach to the cusps of the lower chamber of the heart. The structure is also
These are the mitral and tricuspid valves, which are situated between the atria and the ventricles and prevent backflow from the ventricles into the atria during systole. They are anchored to the walls of the ventricles by chordae tendineae, which prevent the valves from inverting. The chordae tendineae are attached to papillary muscles that cause tension to better hold the valve. Together, the papillary muscles and the chordae tendineae are known as the subvalvular apparatus. The function of the subvalvular apparatus is to keep the valves from prolapsing into the atria when they close. The subvalvular apparatus has no effect on the opening and closure of the valves, however, which is caused entirely by the pressure gradient across the valve. The peculiar insertion of chords on the leaflet free margin, however, provides systolic stress sharing between chords according to their different thickness.[7] The closure of the AV valves is heard as lub, the first heart sound (S1). The closure of the SL ...

The Journal of Heart Valve Disease, Contents, 2012, Volume 21 Number 4 July 2012, MITRAL VALVE DISEASE, Animal Models of Mitral Regurgitation Induced by Mitral Valve Chordae Tendineae Rupture
BACKGROUND: Common surgical procedures on the mitral valve of the heart include modifications to the chordae tendineae. Such interventions are used when there is extensive leaflet prolapse caused by chordae rupture or elongation. Understanding the role of individual chordae tendineae before operating could be helpful to predict whether the mitral valve will be competent at peak systole. Biomechanical modelling and simulation can achieve this goal. METHODS: We present a method to semi-automatically build a computational model of a mitral valve from micro CT (computed tomography) scans: after manually picking chordae fiducial points, the leaflets are segmented and the boundary conditions as well as the loading conditions are automatically defined ...

Mitral prolapse is a common cardiac disease whose patients are at higher risk for serious complications. Mitral valve (MV) repair offers several important advantages compared with valve replacement and it achieves excellent midterm and long-term results. Two major problems of using pre-measured expanded polytetrafluoroethylene(ePTFE) neochordae (the loop technique) are deciding the length of the neochordae and tying the knot at the intended length. Therefore, a great need still exists to find new method to simplify and precise the length of neochordae. 20 patients with mitral valve prolapse who undergo mitral valve repair using neochorda will be recruited in this study. Trans thoracic echocardiography (TTE) will be done preoperatively for all patients. Two, three, and four chamber view of each patient will be pre-operatively recorded. The device will be set with extracted measurements. Artificial corda loops are made using CV-4 ePTFE sutures. After artificial chordae replacement, the ring ...
This video reviews techniques of artificial chordal replacement (ACR) as a component of complex mitral repair. A brief summary of ACR history is given, as well as basic techniques of ACR placement and length adjustment. Several cases then are presented, and operative videos are correlated with pre- and post-operative transesophageal echocardiograms. Three procedures involving isolated posterior leaflet prolapse are shown, one repaired with open ACR, and two with robotic methods. Then, a patient with true commissural prolapse is illustrated, managed with ACR to both leaflets. A Barlows valve with annular calcification and generalized segmentation and prolapse is treated with annular decalcification and 4 sets of artificial chords. A patient with a previous failed repair underwent complex re-repair, including ACR to a prolapsing commissural cusp. Posterior leaflet augmentation with gluteraldehyde-fixed autologous pericardium also is used. Approaches to repairing valves with advanced rheumatic ...
MV) is thin, incomplete ring of fibrous tissue. • Most MVs have anterior and posterior leaflets, attached by thin fibrous chordae tendineae to papillary muscle. • Closed during systole via action of papillary muscle contraction, open during diastole when LA pressure higher than LV pressure. • Mitral stenosis (MS) is fibrosis, narrowing of valvular area causing ventricular inflow obstruction during diastole. • Early valvular disease of rheumatic fever: Acute inflammatory infiltrate that heals by fibrous organization. • Leaflets become fibrotic and thickened causing reduced pliability and surface area. • Fusion of leaflets at commissures. • Calcification may occur in leaflets. • Chordae thickened, shortened, and fibrotic. • Mitral complex becomes fish mouth. • Results in pulmonary congestion, thickening of pulmonary capillaries, intimal fibrosis of arterioles. • Pulmonary hypertension progresses with time ...
A murmur of mitral regurgitation in patients with congestive heart failure after an acute myocardial infarction suggests a surgically correctable cause of the heart failure. Six patients who presented in this manner and who later underwent surgery have been evaluated by two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE). The underlying anatomical cause of the mitral regurgitation was correctly identified as papillary muscle rupture (2 cases), ruptured chordae tendineae (1 case) and papillary muscle fibrosis (3 cases).. Two-dimensional echocardiography is useful in evaluating patients with congestive heart failure who develop a systolic murmur after acute infarction, as it can detect surgically correctable structural defects.. ...

The papillary muscles are muscles located in the ventricles of the heart. They attach to the cusps of the atrioventricular valves (also known as the mitral and tricuspid valves) via the chordae tendineae and contract to prevent inversion or prolapse of these valves on systole (or ventricular contraction).[1] The papillary muscles constitute about 10% of the total heart mass.[2] ...
Moderate or greater mitral regurgitation (MR) is the most frequent valve disease in the United States, with a prevalence (exceeding 2 million people in 2002) that is anticipated to double by 2030 (2,3). Competence of the mitral valve requires a temporally and spatially coordinated interaction of the mitral leaflets with the annulus, chordae tendinae, and papillary muscles; dysfunction of any of these components will affect the normal systolic coaptation of the anterior and posterior leaflets and cause mitral regurgitation. Mechanistically, MR is classified as either primary (i.e., intrinsic valve disease) or functional, and is further subclassified by the degree of leaflet mobility. Functional MR occurs in patients with a structurally normal valve (generally with restricted leaflet mobility), mitral annular dilation, and left ventricular remodeling (4); whether annular dilation alone (no left ventricular [LV] remodeling, normal leaflet mobility) is sufficient for the development of MR is ...
Now lets take a closer look at the valves. All of the hearts valves allow blood to flow one way but not the other. They open to let blood pass through, and then quickly snap shut. They keep blood moving in the right direction through the heart. The tricuspid and mitral valves are called the atrioventricular valves. The tricuspid valve has three flaps (called cusps or leaflets) and the bicuspid valve has two. These valves are connected to the papillary muscles of the heart by thin, tendon-like strings called chordae tendineae. The pulmonary valve and the aortic valve are called the semilunar valves. They normally have three flaps. ...
Heart valves and strings, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This dissection shows both the mitral valve (centre) and the aortic valve (upper centre). The mitral valve lies between the left ventricle of the heart (bottom) and the left atrium (not seen). The aortic valve (upper centre) is where the blood passes from the left ventricle into the aorta (top right). Also seen here are the heart strings (chordae tendineae, thread-like), the papilliary muscles (thick bands at lower right and left), and the trabeculae carneae (columnar structures on the inner wall of the ventricle). - Stock Image C002/1080
Within the lungs the blood is oxygenated. From the lungs the blood returns to the left atrium of the guts. Blood within the left atrium strikes to the left ventricle in the course of the left atrioventricular valve or the biscuspid valve.

Parachute mitral valve (PMV) is a congenital heart anomaly which consists of a unifocal attachment of the mitral valve chordae into a single or dominant papillary muscle. This morphological anomaly determines the impairment of mitral leaflet motion, resulting in different grades of mitral stenosis. Due to its frequent association with other congenital cardiac defects requiring surgical correction, the therapy of a relevant stenotic PMV is usually represented by surgical commissurotomy. Herein is reported the case of a PMV treated by surgery in infancy, which showed a severe restenosis after 34 years and was successfully treated by percutaneous valvuloplasty with the additional creation of a restrictive atrial communication ...

So knowing the grade of a murmur isnt all that informative as it doesnt give you a good picture of how the heart is actually functioning - but a color Doppler ultrasound (echocardiogram) when done by a specialist with training and experience (versus a GP vet simply with enough money to purchase an ultrasound machine) is very informative. That test will show the functioning of the valves, and you can see changes in the valve leaflets, whether or not there are ruptured chordae tendinae, whether there is valve prolapse; you can see the regurgitant flow and measure the velocity of the regurg, and you can get exact measurements of the cardiac chambers and compare them to normal measurements. Other complications such as whether or not pulmonary hypertension is present can also be measured by an echo. Another important measurement obtained from an echo is contractility or shortening fraction, which is given in a percentage (like 20% or 50%). This is a measurement of the pumping strength/ability of ...

Cardiac tumors are rare disorders with an incidence of |0.33%. Primary cardiac tumors are extremely rare with an incidence between 0.0017% and 0.19%. Nearly 75% of cardiac tumors are benign with atrial myxomas representing nearly 50%. The majority of cardiac myxomas (75%) are located in the left atrium, 23% in right atrium and 2% in the ventricular cavity. This report presents a rare case of an asymptomatic patient with a left ventricular myxoma attached to the chordae tendinae of the mitral valve.
Treatment is not usually necessary as MVP is rarely a serious condition. Regular checkups with a physician are advised.. Persons with rhythm disturbances may need to be treated with beta blockers or other medications to control tachycardias (fast heart rhythms). In most cases, limiting stimulants such as caffeine and cigarettes is all that is needed to control symptoms.. If atrial fibrillation or severe left atrial enlargement is present, treatment with an anticoagulant may be recommended. This can be in the form of aspirin or warfarin (Coumadin®) therapy.. For the person with symptoms of dizziness or fainting, maintaining adequate hydration (fluid volume in the blood vessels) with liberal salt and fluid intake is important. Support stockings may be beneficial.. If severe mitral regurgitation resulting from a floppy mitral leaflet, rupture of the chordae tendineae, or extreme lengthening of the valve should occur, surgical repair may be indicated.. ...
The incidence and etiological classification of valvular diseases were examined on 358 cases from 3,000 consecutive autopsies of more than 60 years of age. The incidence of valvular disease was 11.9% (358 out of 3,000 cases). Mitral stenosis was found in 23 cases (6.4%), of which 21 cases were rheumatic and the remaining 2 were mitral ring calcification (MRC). Mitral regurgitation was observed in 126 cases (35.3%): 69 of papillary muscle dysfunction, 26 of mitral valve prolapse (MVP), 16 of MRC, 9 of ruptured chordae tendineae, 3 of rheumatic and 3 of congenital. Aortic stenosis was noted in 33 cases (9.2%): 27 of calcified, 5 of rheumatic and one of congenital. Aortic regurgitation was found in 169 cases (47.2%): 112 of degenerative, 47 of syphilitic, 7 of rheumatic and 2 of aortitis syndrome. There were 6 cases (1.7%) of tricuspid regurgitation. Etiological classification revealed 6 cases (1.7%) of congenital, 36 (10%) of rheumatic, 49 (13.7%) of syphilitic, 27 (7.5%) of MVP, 69 (19.3%) of ischemic

The mitral valve lies between the left atrium and the left ventricle and has two leaflets, the anterior and the posterior. In the figures below, the anterior leaflet is colored green and the posterior leaflet is colored blue. The corresponding video clips show the motion of the valve through the cardiac cycle, but the leaflets are not colored. The images in the left column show the mitral valve directly visualized from the left ventricle, where the chordae tendinae of the subvalvular apparatus can be appreciated. The middle images are taken using transthoracic echocardiography in a 2 chamber, long axis view of the mitral valve. The images on the right are taken of the anterior and posterior leaflets in a short axis view of the heart taken at the level of the mitral valve annulus using transthoracic echocardiography. Applications such as color flow echocardiography allow for the visualization of flow through the mitral valve. Other anatomical features of the mitral valve that can be visualized ...
Introduction: The venturi effect, flow drag effect and abnormal mitral valve apparatus have all been implicated in the development of systolic anterior motion (SAM) of mitral valve among HCM patients. Nevertheless, SAM has also been shown to occur in the absence of HCM or abnormal mitral apparatus. A long posterior mitral leaflet (PML) in relation to the LV cavity may move the coaptation point of the leaflets anteriorly during systole, thus exposing the PML/AML to the flow drag effect of the ejecting blood.. Hypothesis: We hypothesize that a simple mismatch between PML length and LV cavity i.e. a high PML/LV internal diameter in systole (LVIDS) ratio is an important factor for SAM of mitral valve to occur in HCM patient. The null hypothesis is there was no difference in the PML/LVIDS ratio among HCM patients, with or without SAM.. Methods: Consecutive 74 patients who were diagnosed to have HCM with asymmetrical septal hypertrophy(ASH) from our echocardiography laboratories from November 2007 ...
Mitral valve prolapse and mitral regurgitation can be treating by implanting in the mitral annulus a transvalvular intraannular band. The band is positioned so that it extends transversely across a coaptive edge formed by the closure of the mitral valve leaflets, to inhibit prolapse into the left atrium. At least one marginal chordae is severed, to permit leaflet closure against the band.
Numerical models of the mitral valve have been used to elucidate mitral valve function and mechanics. These models have evolved from simple two-dimensional approximations to complex three-dimensional fully coupled fluid structure interaction models. However, to date these models lack direct one-to-one experimental validation. As computational solvers vary considerably, experimental benchmark data are critically important to ensure model accuracy. In this study, a novel left heart simulator was designed specifically for the validation of numerical mitral valve models. Several distinct experimental techniques were collectively performed to resolve mitral valve geometry and hemodynamics. In particular, micro-computed tomography was used to obtain accurate and high-resolution (39 μm voxel) native valvular anatomy, which included the mitral leaflets, chordae tendinae, and papillary muscles. Three-dimensional echocardiography was used to obtain systolic leaflet geometry. Stereoscopic digital particle ...

Methods. Seven patients were operated on using a new technique. Normal LA shape and size were restored by symmetrical Mercedes-plastics of the posterior LA wall. Isolated strut chordae sparing mitral leaflets replacement (SChS-MLR) was performed for preserving annular-LV interaction and biomechanics of the LV contraction. In mitral position we implanted bileaflets Carbomedics (USA) prosthesis (in 6 patients) and a tilting disc MIKC prosthesis (Russia). Additionally RA plastics and TV De Vega plastics were performed in 4 patients. Diastolic and systolic functions of the LV, the size of the LA were under TEE and 2D ECHO controls ...
Significantly, papillary muscles contract before contraction of the right ventricular in order to tighten the tendinous chords. As such, the tricuspid valve closes by drawing the cusps together before ventricular contraction and blood is prevented from regurgitation to the right atrium ...

Among 61 heart specimens of tetralogy of Fallot with or without pulmonary atresia, four presented with an accessory tricuspid valve leaflet. This structure caused partial or almost complete obstruction of the ventricular septal defect. Depending on the morphology, the accessory tissue was classified into mobile or fixed types. The mobile variety was tethered by long chordae tendineae which permitted a wide excursion of the leaflet through the ventricular septal defect into the left ventricular outflow tract where it represented a potential cause of obstruction. The fixed variety was attached to the edges of the defect by short chordae which reduced considerably its movements. This type created a fixed obstruction of the ventricular septal defect without involving the subaortic left ventricular outflow tract. The precise morphology of the accessory tricuspid valve tissue is of considerable surgical significance. When mobile, the tissue must be resected at the time of surgical repair. When ...
A 48-year-old man with a medical history of hypertension was admitted with acute dyspnea and pyrexia. Echocardiographic examination revealed a dilated and volume-overloaded left ventricle and severe mitral regurgitation due to ruptured chordae tendinae resulting in posterior leaflet prolapse. Blood cultures were negative. The patient was treated with antibiotics considering that he had a chest infection based on the admission chest x-ray, diuretics, and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, and his clinical condition improved. Subsequently, he was referred for cardiac surgery. Coronary angiography demonstrated normal coronary anatomy, and he had mitral valve repair with placement of a 27-mm Duran flexible mitral ring. Postoperatively, he developed pyrexia. Numerous blood cultures were negative, but on the 14th postoperative day serological tests came back positive for Coxiella burnetti. He was treated with the combination of doxycycline and chloroquine. On the 25th postoperative day, he ...

In recent years percutaneous therapy has emerged as a feasible and effective option for the treatment of mitral regurgitation, particularly in cases where the risks of conventional cardiac surgery are prohibitively high. To date the most widely used percutaneous approach is beating heart, edge-to-edge repair with the MitraClip device (Abbott Vascular-Structural Heart, Menlo Park, CA). The technique requires simultaneous grasping and approximation of both mitral valve leaflets prior to securing and releasing the clip. However, this may be technically challenging or indeed impossible in patients with failure of coaptation, particularly when there is a large coaptation gap. We present an approach for overcoming this relatively common obstacle based on propping the anterior mitral valve leaflet toward its posterior counterpart with a diagnostic pigtail catheter to reduce the coaptation gap and to allow grasping of both leaflets without difficulty. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.. ...
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 surgically implanted radiopaque markers. Three loci (tip, junction, and base) on each PM were also projected onto the MA plane at end diastole and end systole to assess PM dynamics. The anterior PM tip showed significant shortening of DT-A toward the opposite side of the MA or the midanterior MA region (P | .005 or P | .05, respectively, versus same MA side [MANOVA]); conversely, the posterior PM tip DT-A shortened toward the opposite side of the MA near the anterior commissure or the area between the anterior commissure and midposterior MA (P | .005 versus same MA side). Annular projection revealed three-dimensional motion (relative to the MA) of the
This is the most frequent form of valvular disease of the heart and is due to a shortening or thickening of the valves or to some adhesion which does not permit the valve to close properly and the blood consequently regu.

This is quite easy - lets keep to C major for our examples. Then you use the roman numerals for 1,2, 3 etc for the chords on C, D, E etc, as I, II, III etc. Now there is a subtlety here because, if you keep all the notes within the diatonic scale, some chords such as C E G are major, and others such as D F A are minor. The convention is to show the major chords in upper case and the minor chords in lower case. So the sequence is I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi Here, I have left out vii as it needs further discussion. The triad in this position in the diatonic scale has a diminished fifth rather than a perfect fifth. In C major its fifth is B to F. The diminished fifth, or tritone, is three whole tones in size and exactly splits the octave in two. Its not a particularly concordant interval and has a strong feeling that it needs to be resolved. In the classical notation vii simply plays a diminished fifth, though often notated as viio to indicate that it is diminished. In the popular notation however, vii ...
