Mitral annular calcification (MAC) has been associated with adverse outcomes in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) but has been investigated in isolation of co-existent mitral regurgitation or mitral stenosis, which may represent important confounders. This study sought to investigate the effect of MAC with and without concomitant mitral valve disease (MVD) on clinical outcomes in patients treated with TAVR.

The aim of the article is to discuss different therapeutic options for patients with severe mitral valve dysfunction because of mitral annular calcification (MAC), including mitral valve repair, conve...
The management of severe mitral annular calcification (MAC) with a conservative approach minimizes the risk of atrioventricular groove (AVG) disrupture. However, patients with a history of rheumatic v...
While 'senile' calcific mitral stenosis is a rare cause of mitral stenosis as compared with rheumatic heart disease worldwide, it is thought to be more common in developed nations. Due to differences ...
Mitral valve replacement in infants is rare and causes a relatively high mortality, especially for patients under the age of 1. Supra-annular valve replacement is a viable technique for infants with a...
Mitral stenosis (MS) is a common valvular disease characterized by narrowing of the mitral valve orifice and a reduction in mitral valve area (MVA). While rheumatic MS (RMS) is frequently encountered ...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety and feasibility of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve in subjects with mitral annular calcification (MAC) associated with mitral stenosis (MS) ...
This study is a prospective, single-arm, multi-center feasibility clinical study of the Tendyne Mitral Valve System for the treatment of subjects with symptomatic, severe mitral regurgitat...
Many people develop calcium deposits in the heart as they get older. One of the common places for this to occur is the mitral annulus, the band of tissue that supports the mitral valve (on...
Prospective, observational, multi-center trial in which patients with mitral regurgitation sufficient to merit mitral valve repair will receive a surgical transvalvular, intra-annular Mitr...
Multi center evaluation of the Millipede IRIS for treatment of clinically significant mitral regurgitation in subjects determined appropriate for mitral valve surgery.
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.
The valve between the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart.
