Relation of mitral valve prolapse to basal left ventricular hypertrophy as determined by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging

The American Journal of Cardiology, 04/25/2012

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is associated with concentric basal LV hypertrophy and good correlation between the excursion of the mitral valve annulus and the degree of relative LV hypertrophy suggests that locally increased myocardial function could be responsible for this remodeling.
