  • The tendinous chords pull the flaps or cusps of the valves and prevent them from swinging back into the upper chamber of the heart.[knowyourbody.net]
  • The chordae tendineae prevent the eversion, prolapse , by becoming tense thus pulling the flaps, holding them in closed position. [1] Additional images [ edit ] Papillary muscles and chordae tendineae Ultrasound showing redundant chordae tendineae [2][en.wikipedia.org]
  • Local LV remodeling with papillary muscle displacement (both the dilatation of the ventricle and the akinesis/dyskinesis of the wall to which the papillary muscle is attached can prevent adequate leaflet coaptation).[unboundmedicine.com]
  • Following a low-salt diet helps prevent fluid buildup and helps control blood pressure. Antibiotics are used to help prevent endocarditis. If you have mitral valve regurgitation, always follow precautions to prevent endocarditis.[knowyourdisease.com]
  • The AV valves prevent regurgitation by covering the openings to the atria and forcing blood to exit the heart.[innerbody.com]
