BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY The initial application of repair to rheumatic mitral disease was fraught with unacceptable recurrence rates. For this reason, rheumatic valves primarily have been replaced in recent years. Early and late outcomes with replacement, however, have continued to be suboptimal, prompting a re-examination of repair. METHODS All eight patients encountered by the authors with rheumatic mitral valve disease over the past three years were considered for valve repair. One… CONTINUE READING
