Background and aim of the study: Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is commonly encountered in patients with heart failure, and is associated with an adverse prognosis. It is hypothesized that left ventricular (LV) and papillary muscle systolic dyssynchrony causes diastolic mitral regurgitation (DMR) in non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DC) patients.
