Abstract

Described herein is a 71-year-old man who at age 61 was found by echocardiogram to have severe mitral regurgitation (MR) from mitral valve prolapse. During the subsequent 9 years the MR progressively lessened as his left ventricular cavity dilated and his ejection fraction progressively fell such that just before orthotopic heart transplantation the degree of MR was no longer severe, and the prolapse of the mitral leaflets had disappeared. This report describes this unique patient.
