Regional biomechanical and histological characterization of the mitral valve apparatus: Implications for mitral repair strategies

The aim of this study was to investigate the regional and directional differences in the biomechanics and histoarchitecture of the porcine mitral valve (MV) apparatus, with a view to tailoring tissue-engineered constructs for MV repair. The anterior leaflet displayed the largest directional anisotro...
