... resulting in increased leaflet area and elongation of the chordae tendineae. Elongation of the chordae tendineae often causes ... This is occasionally due to rupture of the chordae tendineae that support the mitral valve. MVP may occur with greater ... Dissociation of leaflet and chordae tendineae provides for unrestricted motion of the leaflet (hence "flail leaflet"). Thus ... and causing more laxity on the chordae tendineae. This allows the mitral valve to prolapse earlier in systole, leading to an ...
