[Changes in the hemodynamics and work capacity of patients following mitral commissurotomy].

Abstract

A radiocardiographic study of the hemodynamic patterns in 256 patients at different times after mitral commissurotomy and their impact on postoperative working capacity demonstrated that the hemodynamic effect of mitral commissurotomy was more pronounced, earlier and more persistent in patients, operated on during the 3d stage of the disease. More advanced stages of circulatory insufficiency were associated with worse major hemodynamic parameters. The cardiac index can be used as an objective indicator of hemodynamic status and the extent of circulatory insufficiency, as well as a criterion for the assessment of working capacity after mitral commissurotomy.
