What do you think about the papillary muscle movement?
A – Normal contraction B – Abnormal movement for mitral valve prolapse C – Abnormal movement for hypertrophic papillary muscle D – Abnormal movement for myocardial infarction
Correct answer is B) : Abnormal movement for mitral valve prolapse
Mitral valve prolapse is characterized by an abnormal movement of the valvular apparatus which may affect the papillary muscles (PMs) function. In this case is possible to seen the abnormal movement of the posteromedial papillary muscle due to mitral valve prolapse (clearly visualized in 4ch cine imaging view).
