    Mitral regurgitation is uncommon with left atrial myxoma. The echocardiographic assessment of presence of mitral regurgitation and its severity are impaired by the presence of left atrial myxoma. We describe an uncommon association of left atrial myxoma with coronary artery disease and mitral...

    Myxomatous disease generally affects mitral valve. However, tricuspid valves also can be involved in 20% of the myxomatous mitral valve disease. Valve prolapse, elongation of chordae and chordae rupture are generally seen complications of the myxomatous disease. There are some reports about...

    In hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), rupture of mitral chordae tendineae is infrequent and causes acute haemodynamic deterioration. A 38 year old male patient had chordae rupture leading to prolapse of both mitral leaflets and severe regurgitation, without change in symptomatic status. One year...

    The aim of this study is to investigate the blood characteristics in patients with severe mitral regurgitation due to idiopathic rupture of chordae tendinea. 26 patients who diagnosed severe mitral regurgitation due to idiopathic chordae tendineae (group 1) and 40 healthy age-sex matched...
