Abstract/OtherAbstract:
34 patients with catheter verified, haemodynamically trivial mitral leaflet prolapse with chest pain and normal coronary arteries were studied. Nineteen had no auscultatory signs of MLP despite clear catheter or echocardiographic evidence of prolapse. Infero-lateral repolarisation changes on the resting electrocardiogram were present in 29%. 50% had false positive exercise tests. M-mode echocardiography proved diagnostically disappointing but sector scans revealed mitral leaflet prolapse in 62%. The apical 4 chamber acoustic window was markedly superior to the parasternal long axis acoustic window.
