AIMS To examine whether the presence of pre-pacing functional mitral regurgitation (MR) and its improvement would affect the extent of left ventricular (LV) reverse remodelling after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). METHODS AND RESULTS Echocardiographic assessment was performed in 83 patients before and 3 months after CRT. Total MR volume and the early- and late-systolic MR flow rate were assessed. At 3 months, there was reduction in total MR volume (38 ± 20 vs. 33 ± 21 mL) with… CONTINUE READING
