    The lecture Mitral Regurgitation: Visualization by Carlo Raj, MD is from the course Valvular Heart Disease.

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Blood is entering the left atrium from both the pulmonary veins and the left ventricle
    2. Compliance of the left atrium is greater in mitral stenosis compared to mitral regurgitation
    3. The left ventricle enlarges and compresses the left atrium
    4. All of the above
    5. None of the above
    1. Left atrial wall compliance increases and dilates
    2. Left atrial wall compliance decreases and dilates
    3. Thickening of the atrial wall causes a decrease in chamber size
    4. Increase in stroke volume allows the left atrium to compensate for the increased blood volume
    5. Decrease in venous return results from a global decrease in cardiac output
    1. Both will eventually lead to lateral displacement of the apex
    2. Both involve a disturbance between the left atrium and left ventricle
    3. Both involve increased pressure in the left atrium
    4. Both result in pulmonary edema
    5. Both may be caused by rheumatic heart disease
