Echocardiography and Correction of Mitral Regurgitation: An Unbreakable Link.

Summary of "Echocardiography and Correction of Mitral Regurgitation: An Unbreakable Link."

Degenerative mitral valve (MV) disease causing mitral regurgitation (MR) is the most common organic valve pathology and is classified based on leaflet motion. MV repair is indicated as the preferred technique (Class I indication) when the results are expected to be durable. Therefore, a detailed and systematic evaluation of MV apparatus is pivotal in allowing the proper surgical planning, as well as the screening for trans catheter-based treatment when surgery is not indicated.

Mechanisms of mitral regurgitation after percutaneous mitral valve repair with the MitraClip.

We sought to find the morphological mechanisms of recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR) after MitraClip procedure using 3D transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE).

Impact of abrupt versus gradual correction of mitral and tricuspid regurgitation: a modelling study.

Correction of mitral and/or tricuspid regurgitation (MR, TR) frequently leads to poor outcomes in the days following intervention. We sought to understand how abrupt correction of MR and TR affects ve...

Echocardiographic assessment of mitral regurgitation.

Mitral regurgitation (MR) is one of the most frequent indications for valve surgery in developed countries, and echocardiographic assessment is an essential tool to evaluate its etiologies, severity, ...

Evolution of Tricuspid Regurgitation after Repair of Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation.

The fate of unrepaired tricuspid regurgitation (TR) after mitral repair (MVr) for degenerative mitral regurgitation (MR) remains highly debated. The objective of this study was to examine the progress...

Familial occurrence of mitral regurgitation in patients with mitral valve prolapse undergoing mitral valve surgery.

Initial studies have suggested the familial clustering of mitral valve prolapse, but most of them were either community based among unselected individuals or applied non-specific diagnostic criteria. ...

Comparison Study of Echocardiography and Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Assessment of Mitral and Aortic Regurgitation

The primary treatment for patients determined to have severe aortic or mitral regurgitation is surgical repair or replacement their valves. The most commonly used tool to quantify the seve...

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Severe Mitral Regurgitation

The purpose of this study is the evaluation of cardiac and pulmonary response to cardiopulmonary exercise in severe mitral regurgitation and its variation under treatment (surgical mitral ...

Observational Study of the Heart Repair Technologies Mitral Bridge in Treating Mitral Valve Regurgitation

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...

Moderate Mitral Regurgitation in CABG Patients

Background: The presence of a mild to moderate ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) results in a significantly reduced long-term survival and increased hospitalizations for heart-failure. ...

Hemodynamic Stress Test in Severe Mitral Regurgitation (HEMI)

The preferred treatment of organic mitral regurgitation (MR) is mitral valve repair. Optimally this should be timed so late that it commensurate with the risk of surgery and before irrever...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

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.

Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.

Dynamic three-dimensional echocardiography using the added dimension of time to impart the cinematic perception of motion. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
