abstract

  • Patients with MR have significant MA enlargement, irrespective of MR etiology. In contrast to functional MR, patients with MR secondary to leaflet prolapse have the largest annular remodeling-almost 80% increase in area-and yet have preserved annular function and dynamicity. These findings may influence surgical repair technique.
