  • The presence of preoperative myocardial fibrosis assessed with delayed-enhancement CMR was an independent predictor of increased adverse clinical outcomes in patients with chronic mitral regurgitation undergoing mitral valve repair. Our findings suggest that in this population, preoperative delayed-enhancement CMR may be of clinical utility.
