Secondary or functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) has been reported associated with poor prognosis in patients with ischemic or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy. Prognostic impact of the FMR in myocardial infarction with preserved ejection fraction (MIpEF) is unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate predictors and prognostic impact of FMR in MIpEF.

The exact role of papillary muscle infarction (PMI) during the acute phase of acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is not well understood, as existing data on the impact of PMI loc...
This study sought to evaluate the role of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) for the quantification of ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) and myocardial infarct size (MIS) in patients with ischemic car...
New-onset atrial fibrillation complicating acute myocardial infarction represents an important challenge, with prognostic significance.
Mitral regurgitation (MR) is one of the most common valvular defects in the eldery. In patients suffering from heart failure, secondary MR is common and associated with worse prognosis. Due to the usu...
Two randomized clinical trials of transcatheter edge-to-edge mitral valve repair in patients with secondary mitral regurgitation (the Multicentre Randomized Study of Percutaneous Mitral Valve Repair M...
Ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) is a common complication of myocardial infarction, with a reported prevalence of 13-59%. Approximately one-third of these patients have at least moderat...
Recent publications show that an adjunctive subvalvular repair during mitral annuloplasty for secondary mitral regurgitation effective in preventing recurrent regurgitation. One of these p...
The goal of the study is to correlate the effect of ischemic mitral regurgitation on the outcome of STEMI patients treated with successful primary PCI using clinical data and echocardiogra...
Functional Mitral regurgitation is a now well known entity due to tethering of the valve either mono-lateral, as happens in lateral myocardial infarction, or bilateral as happens in dilate...
The aim of this study is i) to evaluate left ventricular global longitudinal strain and myocardial work in patients with heart failure and severe functional mitral regurgitation one year a...
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
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.
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
