    Introduction: The mitral valvar complex is difficult to visualise accurately in only two dimensions. Three-dimensional echocardiography gives new insight into the dynamic changes of intra-cardiac structures during the cardiac cycle. The aim of this study was to study the mitral annulus in...

    OBJECTIVES Mitral annuloplasty involves sewing a prosthetic ring to the mitral annulus. This involves a risk of damaging the surrounding structures in the left atrioventricular (AV) groove, particularly the left circumflex artery, which may be inadvertently sutured, causing an arterial...

    The article focuses on the analysis of anatomy and echocardiography of the normal and abnormal valve. The key to analyze mitral valve is to recognize the extent of the various component. The analysis suggests that mitral valvar complex's congenital abnormalities encompass the entire spectrum of...

    Congenital mitral regurgitation is relatively rare. It can be due to congenital malformation of the valve apparatus, associated structural heart defects, or results from myocardial dysfunction leading to deformation of the valve annulus. Hence, careful delineation of the pathologic processes...

    Background: The prevalence of mitral valvar prolapse has been reported to be between 0.6 and 21%. The goal of our study was to evaluate its prevalence in young athletes who underwent hand-held echocardiography as a screening mostly in southern California. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed...

    Objective: Mitral valvar prolapse is the most common anomaly of the mitral valve apparatus throughout childhood. Fibrillin is one of the structural components of the elastin-associated microfibrils found in the mitral valve. A case-controlled study has performed to investigate the relationship...
