Undersized Mitral Annuloplasty Increases Strain in the Proximal Lateral Left Ventricular Wall
Mitral Valve Annuloplasty
Mitral Valve Insufficiency
Undersized MA increased longitudinal strain in the proximal lateral LV wall at end-diastole. This procedure-related strain at the proximal-lateral LV wall may foster continued LV enlargement and subsequent recurrence of mitral regurgitation.
