Global left ventricular remodeling, extent of inferior wall infarct, and mitral valve geometry are important predictors of mitral regurgitation severity than total infarct size in advanced ischemic cardiomyopathy

Abstract

Methods A total of 494 patients with LVEF ≤ 40% and ≥ 70% stenosis in ≥ 1 epicardial coronary artery and prior history of CABG or PCI were screened. Patients with transthoracic echocardiogram and CMR studies within 7 days were selected. Forty-two patients (9%) were excluded either due to prior mitral valve surgery, unavailable studies or organic mitral… (More)
