Recent Progress in Mitral Valve Disease presents a comprehensive examination of the proceedings that resulted from the International Symposium that transpired in Paris. It discusses the anatomy and physiology of the mitral valve. It addresses the cyclical motion of the mitral valve leaflets. Some of the topics covered in the book are the cyclical motion of the mitral annulus; analysis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; diagnoses of acute myocardial ischemia; characteristics of an abnormally functioning, structurally abnormal mitral valve; atrial function in normal cardiac cycle; and atrial function in acute mitral regurgitation. The factors that modify regurgitant volume are fully covered. An in-depth account of the methods for animal preparation and dynamics of acute experimental mitral regurgitation are provided. The uses and limitations of echocardiography in the examination of the mitral valve are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to the timing of surgical intervention in chronic mitral regurgitation. Another section focuses on the status of prosthetic valves in the mitral position. The book can provide useful information to doctors, cardiologists, students, and researchers.
