Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we metaphorically characterize the mitral leaflets as segments of four inflated balloons pressed together on the ventricular side of the mitral annulus in such a geometric configuration as to preclude their crowding through the mitral annulus into the left atrium. The greater the inflation pressure (LVP), the more firmly the balloon interfaces press together, the more impossible it becomes to crowd this assemblage through the annulus.
