AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the results after standardized techniques of mitral valve repair (MVr) for treatment of degenerative mitral regurgitation (MR) and to analyze risk factors for late outcomes. METHODS Two hundred and sixty-one patients (mean age 63 ± 12 years) underwent MVr between January 1999 and January 2010 for degenerative MR. In the last five years, all repair techniques were performed routinely using annuloplasty prosthetic ring, with or without quadrangular or triangular… CONTINUE READING
