Four cases of papillary muscle rupture occurring in the setting of acute myocardial infarction are presented, which illustrate the following points: the diagnosis may not be apparent at presentation, a mitral regurgitant murmur may be absent, transesophageal echocardiography may establish the diagnosis when transthoracic echocardiography does not, and appropriate surgical correction can lead to excellent functional recovery.
