Preoperative (a and b) and postoperative (a’ and b’) echocardiograms of a patient who underwent new chordae placement for posterior leaflet prolapse and posterior mitral annuloplasty. Parasternal long-axis views showed that the septo-lateral dimensions were reduced after posterior mitral annuloplasty (a’ and b’, arrowhead) in diastole (a-a’) and systole (b-b’). AO: aorta; LA: left atrium; LV: left ventricle
