BACKGROUND: In ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR), ring annuloplasty is associated with a significant rate of recurrent MR. Ring size is based on intertrigonal distance without consideration of left ventricular (LV) size. However, LV size is an important determinant of mitral valve (MV) leaflet tethering before and after repair. We aimed to determine whether LV-MV ring mismatch (mismatch of LV size relative to ring size) is associated with recurrent MR in patients with IMR after restrictive ring annuloplasty...

OBJECTIVE: The symmetry of mitral valve tethering and regional left ventricle wall dysfunction are reported to play a fundamental role in the outcomes and long-term durability of surgical repair in ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR). We recently demonstrated in a randomized clinical trial (the Papillary Muscle Approximation trial) the superiority of papillary muscle approximation (PMA) in combination with standard restrictive annuloplasty (RA) in severe IMR over annuloplasty alone in terms of adverse left ventricular remodeling and mitral regurgitation (MR) recurrence...

RATIONALE: Ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR), a complication after myocardial infarction (MI), induces adaptive mitral valve (MV) responses that may be initially beneficial, but eventually lead to leaflet fibrosis and MV dysfunction. We sought to examine the MV endothelial response and its potential contribution to IMR. OBJECTIVE: Endothelial, interstitial and hematopoietic cells in MVs from post-MI sheep were quantified. MV endothelial CD45, found post-MI, was analyzed in vitro...

BACKGROUND: Data regarding long-term outcomes in cardiovascular pseudoaneurysms are sparse. In patients with prior cardiovascular surgery, we sought to assess characteristics and outcomes in patients with cardiovascular pseudoaneurysms (excluding ischemic left ventricular pseudoaneurysms). METHODS: We included 114 patients (mean age, 57 ± 16 years; 70% were men) with prior cardiovascular surgery who presented with paravalvular (n = 71, 59 aortic and 12 mitral valve) and ascending aortic (n = 43) pseudoaneurysms (27% with systemic infection)...

BACKGROUND: Recurrence of mitral regurgitation (MR) after undersized mitral annuloplasty (MA) for ischemic MR is as high as 60%, with the recurrence rate likely due to continued dilation of the left ventricle (LV). To better understand the causes of recurrent MR, we studied the effect of undersized MA on strain in the LV wall. We hypothesize that the acute change in ventricular shape induced by MA will cause increased strain in regions nearest the mitral valve. METHODS: Finite element models were previously reported, based on cardiac magnetic resonance images of 5 sheep with mild to moderate ischemic MR...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Rheumatic valvular heart disease is associated with the increased risk of cerebrovascular events, although there are limited data on the prognosis of patients with rheumatic mitral valve disease (RMVD) after stroke. METHODS: We examined the association between RMVD and both serious and common cardiovascular and noncardiovascular (respiratory and infective) complications in a cohort of hospitalized stroke patients based in Thailand. Factors associated with in-hospital mortality were also explored...

BACKGROUND: Data comparing outcomes after repair versus replacement of chronic ischemic mitral regurgitation (MR) is evolving. Recent data suggest that repair is associated with recurrent MR, but not survival, when compared with replacement. However, it remains unclear when either surgical strategy should be applied based on preoperative mitral valve anatomy. METHODS: Between 2001 and 2013, 161 patients underwent repair or replacement of chronic ischemic MR. The mean age of these patients was 68...

Introduction. Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery hyperintense vessels (FHVs) can be seen in patients with occlusion or severe stenosis of the cerebral arteries. FHVs are known to reflect stagnant or slow blood flow within the cerebral artery. Case Report. A 75-year-old woman presented with suddenly developed gait disturbance. She had a history of hypertension, heart failure, and dementia. Brain MRI demonstrated FHVs within both middle cerebral arteries (MCAs). However, there was no acute ischemic lesion and severe stenosis or occlusion of the cerebral arteries...

Ischemic mitral regurgitation (MR) after myocardial infarction is associated with poor long-term survival, and the optimal treatment strategy remains debated. The most common repair technique used is a restrictive annuloplasty. However, up to 15% to 30% of patients experience recurrent MR owing to progressive left ventricular remodeling and geometric distortion of the mitral valve apparatus. Anterior mitral leaflet augmentation using a pericardial patch, in combination with a true-sized mitral annuloplasty, has been proposed as an adjunctive technique to increase the durability of valve repair for ischemic MR...

Ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) is a common complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Current evidences suggest that revascularization of the culprit vessels with percutaneous coronary artery intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting can be beneficial for relieving IMR. A 2.5-year follow-up data of a 61-year-old male patient with ST-segment elevation AMI complicated with IMR showed that mitral regurgitation area increased five days after PCI, and decreased to lower steady level three months after PCI...

Mitral valve prolapse is a benign condition. Mitral regurgitation is only complicated in patients with severe mitral valve prolapse. Women with mitral valve prolapse in the absence of other cardiovascular disorders tolerate pregnancy well and do not develop remarkable cardiac complications. Nevertheless, serious complications of mitral valve prolapse, including arrhythmia, infective endocarditis and cerebral ischemic events, can be present in pregnancy. Debates remain with regard to the use of prophylactic antibiotics and β-blockers in the pregnant women with mitral valve prolapse...

A 73-year-old man was admitted to our clinic with sudden left quadrant abdominal pain and hematochezia. There was no history of trauma. He denied other symptoms or taking off-the-counter medication. His medical history was relevant for ischemic and aortic-mitral valve disease with prosthetic valves for which he was medicated with aspirin and warfarin. On physical examination the patient presented normal vital signs with tenderness on palpation of the left side of the abdomen. Laboratory tests revealed moderate anemia (10...

OBJECTIVES: Repair for ischemic mitral regurgitation with undersized annuloplasty is characterized by high recurrence rates. We sought to determine the value of pre-repair 3-dimensional echocardiography over 2-dimensional echocardiography in predicting recurrence at 6 months. METHODS: Intraoperative transesophageal 2-dimensional echocardiography and 3-dimensional echocardiography were performed in 50 patients undergoing undersized annuloplasty for ischemic mitral regurgitation...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) is a common complication of coronary artery disease and represents an independent predictor of mortality. In the IMR the pattern of mitral valve annular dilatation is asymmetrical: this can explain the long-term incidence of recurrent mitral regurgitation after surgical annular size reduction with a symmetrical ring. The aim of this study is to analyze early and mid-term results of mitral valve repair (MVR) with the CMA IMR ETlogix ring, specifically developed for the surgical correction of IMR...

We present a complex case of a transapical redo mitral valve-in-valve replacement. Repeat mitral valve replacement was indicated for severe symptomatic bioprosthetic stenosis. In addition to the patient's numerous comorbidities that included diabetes, hepatic cirrhosis, ischemic cardiomyopathy, and atrial flutter, he had undergone a previous open mitral valve replacement that was complicated by sternal dehiscence requiring extensive chest wall reconstruction. Transapical approach was performed through left minithoracotomy incision with balloon-expandable valve...

BACKGROUND: Decreased right ventricular (RV) ejection fraction (RVEF) portends poor prognosis in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy, and previous studies have suggested an association between mitral regurgitation (MR) and RVEF. We sought to evaluate this association and whether mitral valve repair or replacement affects the relationship between RV function and mortality. METHODS: We included 588 patients (mean age, 63±11 years; 75% male) with ischemic cardiomyopathy who underwent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging between 2002 and 2008...

BACKGROUNDS: Long-term fate of patients submitted to patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure is still unclear. The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF), aortic or atrial free wall erosion, device thrombosis (DT), new onset or worsening of mitral valve regurgitation (MVR), and recurrent cerebral ischemic events in the long-term follow up after intracardiac echocardiography (ICE)-aided PFO closure in a large population. METHODS: We reviewed the medical and instrumental data of 1,000 consecutive patients (mean age 47...
