About Video

This video clip showing parasternal long axis view. There is a clear separation between RV (arrowhead) and LV (arrow) sides of VS. The LV portion of VS is thin and echogenic consistent with fibrosis. MV coaptation (C) point is centrally displaced into LV with restriction of motion of both leaflets resulting from remodeling of LV. This is consistent with dilated cardiomyopathy as opposed to ischemic cardiomyopathy where the coaptation point may be eccentrically displaced with more restricted motion of the posterior mitral leaflet.
