Background. The importance of the mitral apparatus to left ventricular function has been suggested in clinical studies. The effect of disruption of the mitral apparatus on left ventricular diastolic and systolic properties has not been fully documented. Methods and Results. We investigated the end-diastolic and end-systolic pressure-volume and stroke work-end-diastolic volume relations and measured the isovolumic relaxation time constant ('r,) during nonfilling beats before and after disruptiondoi:10.1161/01.cir.87.6.2001 pmid:8504515 fatcat:nexrgn3zofetfhv7ppi5fex7re
