Itoh et al.1 have pointed out that the mitral annulus can be considered as a hinged structure, with the hinge located roughly along a line between the left (Marker #29, LFT) and right (Marker #24, RFT) fibrous trigones. This hinge, separating the contractile and non-contractile portions of the annulus, can be seen in Figures 17.1 and 17.2 (see captions for the views displayed in these figures). Although the studies described here were conducted in different hearts and employed a different geometric approach to data analysis than those of Itoh et al., the findings described here are consistent with theirs and should be considered as an extension of their findings which should be consulted for a very thorough discussion of this topic.
