Abstract [en]

The mitral leaflets hinges define the mitral annulus, thus changes in mitral annular dimensions impact leaflet opening, closing, and coaptation. At least six forces influence mitral annular dimensions, including left ventricular pressure, left atrial pressure, left heart blood flow, left atrial contraction, left ventricular contraction, and mitral chordae. In this chapter we postulate a working hypothesis concerning the impact of these forces on mitral annular dimensions throughout the cardiac cycle.
