abstract

  • Among patients with chronic nonischemic mitral regurgitation (MR), high short-term mortality risk can be identified by left (LV) and/or right ventricular (RV) ejection fraction (EF) criteria (LVEF 20%, MVR significantly improved survival versus medical treatment (rest: p < 0.0001, exercise: p = 0.0003). In high risk MR patients, MVR improves survival; preoperative RV performance can define subgroups with different long-term postoperative survival.
