Late mitral valve opening in aortic regurgitation

Academic Article


  • Austin Flint first described the occurrence of an apical diastolic rumble in patients with severe aortic regurgitation. With the advent of echocardiography, mid and late mitral valve closure have been demonstrated in some patients with this murmur. The reverse situation, early mitral valve closure with late mitral valve opening, has been described less frequently.
