A Case of Flail MV, Review of Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease
This is a case of mitral valve prolapse with severe mitral regurgitation: Echocardiographically MVP is defined as billowing of mitral valve leaflets (any portion of leaflet) ≥2 mm below the annular plane in long axis view (para-sternal or apical three-chamber) TTE.
KeywordsMitral valve prolapse Severe mitral regurgitation Flail mitral valve
Para-sternal long axis, TTE shows prolapse of posterior leaflet (AVI 16028 kb)
Para-sternal long axis, TTE shows severe MR (AVI 12841 kb)
Apical view shows severe eccentric anteriorly directed MR jet (AVI 41124 kb)
