Mitral valve repair versus replacement for isolated non-ischemic mitral regurgitation in patients with preoperative left ventricular dysfunction. A long-term follow-up echocardiography study



Mitral valve repair versus replacement for isolated non-ischemic mitral regurgitation in patients with preoperative left ventricular dysfunction. A long-term follow-up echocardiography study



European Journal of Echocardiography 6(6): 435-442



The aim of this study was to evaluate LV function, by means of echocardiography, after mitral valve repair (MVr) or mitral valve replacement (MVR) in patients (pts) with chronic degenerative mitral regurgitation (MR) and depressed LV systolic function during a 6-years follow-up (FU) period. Forty-five pts with moderately severe or severe MR and preoperative EF
