BACKGROUND: Ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) is a frequent complication of coronary artery heart disease and is associated with increased mortality. Controversies exists whether patients with moderate IMR may benefit from a combined procedure with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and treatment of mitral regurgitation. METHODS: 451 patients with moderate IMR (grade 2) receiving either CABG alone (CABG only) or additional mitral valve repair or replacement (CABG+MV) were included in this observational single-centre study...

BACKGROUND: Although it has been realized that restrictive mitral valve annuloplasty (MVA) may result in clinically significant functional mitral stenosis (MS), it still cannot be predicted. The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors for clinically significant functional MS following restrictive MVA surgery for chronic ischemic mitral regurgitation (CIMR). METHODS: 114 patients who underwent restrictive MVA with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for treatment of CIMR were retrospectively reviewed...

Ischemic mitral regurgitation occurs relatively frequently in patients with coronary artery disease and is associated with an increased long term risk. The pathophysiology of ischemic mitral regurgitation is vexing, and poses both diagnostic and therapeutic challenges, leading to the need for a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach. The management is largely focused on medical therapy, and for those eligible, coronary revascularization and/or cardiac resynchronization therapy may be considered. In select patients, mitral valve surgery or catheter-based therapy may be undertaken with careful consideration of the underlying pathophysiology, surgical risk, and expected long-term outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: Minimally invasive mitral valve repair may be associated with prolonged cardioplegic arrest times and ischemic reperfusion injury. Intravenous (propofol) and volatile (sevoflurane) anesthesia are used routinely during cardiac surgery and are thought to provide cardioprotection; however, the individual contribution of each regimen to cardioprotection is unknown. Therefore, the authors sought to compare the cardioprotective effects of propofol and sevoflurane anesthesia in patients undergoing minimally invasive mitral valve repair...

Although perioperative stroke is uncommon during low-risk non-vascular surgery, if it occurs, it can negatively impact recovery from the surgery and functional outcome. Based on the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Consensus Statement, perioperative stroke includes intraoperative stroke, as well as postoperative stroke developing within 30 days after surgery. Factors related to perioperative stroke include age, sex, a history of stroke or transient ischemic attack, cardiac surgery (aortic surgery, mitral valve surgery, or coronary artery bypass graft surgery), and neurosurgery (external carotid-internal carotid bypass surgery, carotid endarterectomy, or aneurysm clipping)...

Introduction: Excess dilatation of the left atrium >65 mm is known in the literature as gigantic atrium. This dilation is most commonly encountered in the mitral insufficiency of rheumatic etiology, but also in severe prolapses of the mitral valve, permanent atrial fibrillation, and at the left right shunt with cardiac insufficiency. Case report: In this paper is presented a case study of echocardiographically verified giant thrombus in left atrium in a 50 years old female patient aged 50 hospitalized because of tiredness, choking, heartburn and urinary tract symptoms...

Amelioration of the valvular geometry is a possible mechanism for mitral regurgitation (MR) improvement in patients receiving cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). We aimed to establish the precise definition, incidence, and predictors of reversed mitral remodeling (RMR), as well as the association with MR improvement and short-term CRT outcome. Ninety-five CRT recipients were retrospectively evaluated for the end-point of "MR response" defined as the absolute reduction in regurgitant volume (RegV) at 6 months...

Although practice guidelines recommend surgery for patients with severe chronic ischemic mitral regurgitation (CIMR), they do not specify whether to repair or replace the mitral valve. 436 consecutive patients with severe CIMR were eligible for inclusion in the study, of which 316 (72.5%) underwent mitral valve annuloplasty (MVA) whereas 120 (27.5%) received mitral valve replacement (MVR). At 59 months (interquartile range, 37-85 months) follow-up, though the left ventricle end-diastolic diameter was markedly larger (P = 0...

Importance: The left atrial appendage is a key site of thrombus formation in atrial fibrillation (AF) and can be occluded or removed at the time of cardiac surgery. There is limited evidence regarding the effectiveness of surgical left atrial appendage occlusion (S-LAAO) for reducing the risk of thromboembolism. Objective: To evaluate the association of S-LAAO vs no receipt of S-LAAO with the risk of thromboembolism among older patients undergoing cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: In patients with ischemic mitral regurgitation requiring mitral valve replacement (MVR), the choice of the prosthesis type is crucial. The exercise hemodynamic and functional capacity performance in patients with contemporary prostheses have never been investigated. To compare exercise hemodynamic and functional capacity between biological (MVRb) and mechanical (MVRm) prostheses. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed 86 consecutive patients with ischemic mitral regurgitation who underwent MVRb (n=41) or MVRm (n=45) and coronary artery bypass grafting...

BACKGROUND: We investigated whether left ventricular filling pressure is associated with arterial occlusion in patients with ischemic stroke related to atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS: Ninety-nine patients with AF-related stroke were included. Left ventricular filling pressure was assessed by E (early mitral inflow velocity)/e' (early diastolic velocity of the mitral valve annulus velocity) ratio based on tissue Doppler echocardiography. Arterial occlusion was evaluated by computed tomography or magnetic resonance angiography...

This is an observational study to investigate the efficacy and safety of nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients with bioprosthetic valves or prior surgical valve repair in clinical practice. A total of 122 patients (mean age: 74.1 ± 13.2; 54 females) with bioprosthetic heart valve or surgical valve repair and AF treated with NOACs were included in the analysis. The mean CHA2DS2-VASc (Congestive heart failure, Hypertension, Age >75 years, Diabetes mellitus, prior Stroke or transient ischemic attack, Vascular disease) and HAS-BLED (Hypertension, Abnormal renal and liver function, Stroke, Bleeding, Labile INR [international normalized ratio], Elderly, Drugs or alcohol) score values were 3...

Transesophageal echocardiography is the primary imaging modality for preoperative assessment of mitral valves with ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR). While there are well known echocardiographic insights into the 3D morphology of mitral valves with IMR, such as annular dilation and leaflet tethering, less is understood about how quantification of valve dynamics can inform surgical treatment of IMR or predict short-term recurrence of the disease. As a step towards filling this knowledge gap, we present a novel framework for 4D segmentation and geometric modeling of the mitral valve in real-time 3D echocardiography (rt-3DE)...

PURPOSE: To study capabilities of perfusion-metabolic myocardial scintigraphy for prediction of the left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling after comprehensive surgical treatment of ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICMP). METHODS: The study included ICMP patients aged 56±7 years (n=32) who underwent surgical correction of LV dysfunction (myocardial revascularization, LV reconstruction, and mitral valve restoration). Inclusion criteria were significant coronary artery disease; myocardial infarction; New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III-IV heart failure; LV ejection fraction (EF) ≤45%; LV end-systolic index (ESI) >60 mL/m2; and LV akinesia or dyskinesia according to echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: The extent of left atrial (LA) baseline low-voltage areas (LVA-B), which may be a surrogate for fibrosis, is associated with recurrent atrial fibrillation (AF) after ablation. This study aimed to assess the relationship between the extent of LVA-B isolated by ablation (LVA-I) and AF recurrence. METHODS: The study cohort included 159 consecutive patients with drug-refractory AF who underwent an initial AF ablation with LA voltage mapping during sinus rhythm...

BACKGROUND: The presence of valvular heart disease (VHD) may affect the risk of stroke and mortality in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Community-based estimates of prevalence and outcomes of specific forms of VHD in patients with AF are lacking. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined the prevalence of VHD, anticoagulation use, mortality, stroke/transient ischemic attack, and bleeding among a community cohort of patients with AF. Significant VHD was defined as follows: (1) moderate/severe mitral stenosis or mechanical valve; (2) bioprosthetic valve, surgical repair, or balloon valvuloplasty; and (3) moderate/severe aortic regurgitation or stenosis, mitral regurgitation, or tricuspid regurgitation...

OBJECTIVES: Ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) results from ischemic left ventricular (LV) distortion and remodeling, which displaces the papillary muscles and tethers the mitral valve leaflets apically. The aim of this experimental study was to examine efficacy of an adjustable novel polymer filled mesh (poly-mesh) device to reverse LV remodeling and reduce IMR. METHODS: Acute (N = 8) and chronic (8 weeks; N = 5) sheep models of IMR were studied. IMR was produced by ligation of circumflex branches to create myocardial infarction...

OBJECTIVE: Adoption of robotic mitral valve surgery has been slow, likely in part because of its perceived technical complexity and a poorly understood learning curve. We sought to correlate changes in technical performance and outcome with surgeon experience in the "learning curve" part of our series. METHODS: From 2006 to 2011, two surgeons undertook robotically assisted mitral valve repair in 458 patients (intent-to-treat); 404 procedures were completed entirely robotically (as-treated)...
