Outcomes of Mitral Valve Repair Versus Replacement in the Elderly (Commentary).

Comparison between mitral valve repair and replacement in active infective endocarditis.

Mitral valve repair has been proved to provide better outcomes when compared with replacement in degenerative disease. However, it is still unclear that benefits of repair still remain in active endoc...

Choosing the "Best" surgical techniques for mitral valve repair: Lessons from the literature.

Mitral valve (MV) repair is the procedure of choice to correct mitral regurgitation caused by degenerative MV disease, due to its well-documented superiority over MV replacement. Repair of the MV is f...

Mitral Valve Replacement in Infants using a 15-mm Mechanical Valve.

The 15-mm mechanical valve was approved by the FDA in March 2018. We review our experience for infants with this valve in the mitral position, focusing on outcomes and timing to repeat mitral valve re...

Minimal access versus sternotomy for complex mitral valve repair: A meta-analysis.

There is high demand for minimally invasive mitral valve repair; however, it is unclear whether the minimally invasive approach provides the same performance of conventional sternotomy in a context of...

Comparing the Effectiveness of Repairing Versus Replacing the Heart's Mitral Valve in People With Severe Chronic Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation

People with coronary artery disease (CAD) or people who have had a heart attack may develop a leak in the mitral valve of their heart and may therefore need to undergo surgery to fix the v...

Mitral Valve Replacement With MValve Dock and Lotus

This study evaluates the MValve mitral prosthesis in conjunction with a Lotus transcatheter heart valve (THV) for mitral valve replacement in subjects at high risk for conventional mitral ...

The Conveyor Study

To demonstrate that the Conveyor System can safely provide left ventricular access to deliver the SAPIEN 3 (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) transcatheter heart valve in patients ...

The Canadian Mitral Research Alliance (CAMRA-1) Trial

Multicentre, double-armed, randomized controlled trial designed to compare mitral valve leaflet resection versus leaflet preservation with regards to the development of functional mitral s...

Prospective Treatment Algorithm Guiding Repair of Severe Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation

Ischemic mitral regurgitation is a disease where the mitral valve is regurgitant, or leaking, as a result of changes in the muscle of the heart caused by coronary artery disease Ischemic m...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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 annuli of HEART VALVES. 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.
