    Repair of mitral subvalvular apparatus and a calcified left ventricle aneurysm

    Kasra Shaikhrezai , Sanjeet Singh Avtaar Singh , Karim Morcos , Steve Hunter
    Left ventricle (LV) myocardial infarction may result in changes to the structure of the subvalvular apparatus. This may lead to a functional regurgitation if accompanied by annular dilatation preventing coaptation of leaflets. Scar tissue formation in the left ventricle may also lead to aneurysm... Read more
