This editorial refers to ‘Impact of reduction in early- and late-systolic functional mitral regurgitation on reverse remodelling after cardiac resynchronization therapy, by Y. Liang et al. , doi:10.1093/eurheartj/ehq134 Functional mitral regurgitation (MR) is a common finding in patients with global left ventricular (LV) dilatation and dysfunction.1 In these patients, the mitral leaflets are structurally normal and leaflet coaptation failure results from an imbalance between valve closing… CONTINUE READING
