Abstract [en]

Competent mitral valve closure requires tight coaptation of the edge surfaces of the anterior and posterior leaflets. This chapter explores the precision with which specific sites on these surfaces are geometrically aligned at the beginning of each beat (repeatability) and the precision with which this alignment is maintained throughout left ventricular ejection (rigidity).
