Figure 3: Abnormal Mitral valve apparatus. (a) Septal hypertrophy (19.8 mm); reduced left ventricular end diastolic dimension; hypertrophied and bifurcated anteriorly displaced. (b) Superior displacement of anterolateral papillary muscle and reduced interpapillary muscle distance (10.1 mm) produce chordal slack, sweep the anterior mitral leaflet into the left ventricular ejection flow stream
