Myocardial extracellular volume by T1 mapping: a new marker of arrhythmia in mitral val...
Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance : Official J... Pavon AG, Arangalage D et. al.

Sep 15th, 2021 - We aimed to evaluate the relationship between mitral annular disjunction (MAD) severity and myocardial interstitial fibrosis at the left ventricular (LV) base in patients with mitral valve prolapse (MVP), and to assess the association between seve...

Mitral Annular Disjunction of Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation: 3D Evaluation and Impl...
Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography : Off... Essayagh B, Mantovani F et. al.

Sep 14th, 2021 - Mitral annular disjunction (MAD) dynamic consequences on the mitral apparatus and the left ventricle (LV) remain unclear and are crucial in the context of mitral surgery. Thus, we aimed to assess mitral valvular/annular/ventricular dynamics in mit...

Morphology of mitral annular disjunction in mitral valve prolapse.
Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography : Off... Faletra FF, Leo LA et. al.

Sep 12th, 2021 - Mitral-annular disjunction (MAD) is an abnormal insertion of the hinge line of posterior mitral leaflet on the atrial wall: the mitral annulus shows a separation or "disjunction" between the leaflet-atrial wall junction and the "crest" of LV myoca...

Mar 28th, 2017 - Teen years, no doubt, come with expected challenges. For teens with Down syndrome (DS), the challenges are exponentially greater.

Fast Five Quiz: Are You Familiar With Atrial Flutter?

Feb 2nd, 2017 - Atrial flutter may be a sequela of open heart surgery. After cardiac surgery, atrial flutter may be reentrant as a result of natural barriers, atrial incisions, and scar. Some patients develop atypical left atrial flutter after pulmonary vein isol...

Time to End Antibiotic Prophylaxis for Infective Endocarditis?

Dec 2nd, 2016 - Time to End Antibiotic Prophylaxis for Infective Endocarditis? Introduction During my emergency medicine training in the early 1990s, antibiotic prophylaxis for infective endocarditis (IE) was routine for many types of patients before undergoing a...

Model: Uneven MitraClip Not Behind Recurring MR

Oct 5th, 2016 - Uneven MitraClip placement did not increase leaflet stress, making it unlikely to be complicit in mitral regurgitation recurrence, according to a computer model. Having more posterior than anterior leaflet tissue clipped by the device still eased ...
