OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to compare mitral valve repair and replacement as treatments for ischemic mitral regurgitation. METHODS From 1985 through 1997, a total of 482 patients with ischemic mitral regurgitation underwent either valve repair (n = 397) or valve replacement (n = 85). Patients more likely (P < or =.01) to undergo repair had(More)

OBJECTIVES We sought to characterize the temporal return of mitral regurgitation after annuloplasty for functional ischemic mitral regurgitation; to identify its predictors, particularly with respect to annuloplasty type; and to determine whether annuloplasty type influences survival. METHODS From April 1985 through November 2002, 585 patients underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Degenerative mitral valve disease is the most common cause of mitral regurgitation in the United States. Mitral valve repair is applicable in the majority of these patients and has become the procedure of choice. OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to identify factors influencing the durability of mitral valve repair. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES Techniques employed today concomitantly with left-sided heart valve surgery address secondary tricuspid valve regurgitation at 3 anatomic levels-annulus, commissure, and leaflet-although success of these alone or in combination in eliminating tricuspid regurgitation is uncertain. Our objective was to assess the comparative effectiveness of these(More)
OBJECTIVE Less invasive approaches to mitral valve surgery are increasingly used for improved cosmesis; however, few studies have investigated their effect on outcome. We sought to compare these minimally invasive approaches fairly with conventional full sternotomy by using propensity-matching methods. METHODS From January 1995 to January 2004, 2124(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to assess the impact of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) on the long-term success and complications in patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS AND RESULTS Three hundred fifteen patients underwent PVI for treatment of AF. Each patient underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the durability of repair of a bicuspid aortic valve with leaflet prolapse, and to identify factors associated with repair failure. METHODS From November 1988 to January 1997, 94 patients with a bicuspid aortic valve and regurgitation from leaflet prolapse had aortic valve repair. In 66 patients, the repair employed triangular(More)
