Recent publications show that an adjunctive subvalvular repair during mitral annuloplasty for secondary mitral regurgitation effective in preventing recurrent regurgitation. One of these procedures is the papillary muscles approximation. However, the safety and the positive impact of this method are still in doubt.
Ischemic mitral regurgitation develops in 10-50% of patients after myocardial infarction. Among several surgical procedures, mitral ring annuloplasty has been the method of choice for a considerable period. However, mitral regurgitation recurrence after surgery has a reported occurrence that ranges from 5% to 58%. Careful consideration of the mechanisms underlying recurrence of mitral regurgitation after annuloplasty might explain the unsatisfactory outcomes. The pathophysiology of IMR is complex and results from the imbalance between closing and tethering forces acting on the mitral valve. Enlargement of the left ventricular chamber, and displacement of papillary muscles in apical and lateral direction increase the tethering forces. Left ventricular and papillary muscle dyssynchrony, reduced myocardial contractility decrease closing forces, which lead to impaired leaflet coaptation and appearance of mitral regurgitation. Thus, treatment of mitral insufficiency requires an integrated approach affecting all units of the pathogenesis of MR recurrence.

Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
A thyroid neoplasm of mixed papillary and follicular arrangement. Its biological behavior and prognosis is the same as that of a papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1271)
A malignant cystic or semicystic neoplasm. It often occurs in the ovary and usually bilaterally. The external surface is usually covered with papillary excrescences. Microscopically, the papillary patterns are predominantly epithelial overgrowths with differentiated and undifferentiated papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma cells. Psammoma bodies may be present. The tumor generally adheres to surrounding structures and produces ascites. (From Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p185)
Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.
