Chapter 41 P2 Shape and Tertiary Chords
2016 (English)In: Mitral Valve Mechanics / [ed] Neil B Ingels, Jr and Matts Karlsson, Linköping University Electronic Press, 2016, 41.1-41.5 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter tests the hypothesis that the central belly of the P2 posterior leaflet deforms as an unsupported elastic membrane subjected to left ventricular pressure in the closed valve. This hypothesis produces at least three marker-testable predictions: first, that radial leaflet curvature is concave to the left ventricle throughout ejection; second, that this curvature changes very little during the nearly constant systolic pressure during ejection; and third, that this curvature flattens as LVP falls precipitously during isovolumic relaxation.
