This study was performed to determine if strain can supplement the ability of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) to predict post-op ventricular dysfunction in patients undergoing mitral valve (MV) surgery for degenerative mitral regurgitation (DMR).
This article was published in the following journal.

This study aims to compare the mid-term outcomes of left ventricular reconstruction with those of left ventricular reconstruction plus mitral valve surgery in patients with left ventricular aneurysm d...
Ischemic mitral regurgitation is a condition characterized by mitral insufficiency secondary to an ischemic left ventricular.Primarily, the pathology is the result of perturbation of normal regional l...
Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (mini-MVS) with hypothermic fibrillatory arrest has been associated with an increased risk of stroke. We aim to investigate the incidence, predictors, and outco...
To find out if there are any differences in biomarkers between severe isolated right ventricular (RV) dysfunction and severe isolated left ventricular (LV) dysfunction after cardiac surgery using card...
Degenerative mitral valve disease involving anterior leaflet pathology is considered less favorable regarding durability of surgical repair than isolated posterior leaflet disease. We aimed to compare...
Primary mitral regurgitation (MR) is the second most frequent valve disease requiring surgery and it is important to identify patients whose outcome could be improved with surgery by consi...
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...
Current American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines recommend that patients with severe degenerative mitral regurgitation be considered for mitral valve surgery. T...
- Chronic severe mitral regurgitation can lead to symptoms and left ventricular dysfunction. - The purpose of this study is to prospectively follow patients with non-ischaemic ...
Rheumatic heart disease remains a major health problem in developing countries. It is the most important sequel of rheumatic fever and occurs in about 30% of patients with rheumatic fever....
A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
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 form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
