Regional wall motion abnormalities and scarring in severe functional ischemic mitral regurgitation: A pilot cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging study.


OBJECTIVES To relate cardiovascular magnetic resonance-derived segmental wall motion and myocardial scarring and determine whether they are associated with postoperative mitral regurgitation following coronary artery bypass grafting and annuloplasty for severe functional ischemic mitral regurgitation. METHODS From January 2001 to October 2006, 29 patients… (More)
