IPPVM: Prognostic Impact of the Location of Mitral Valve Prolapse on the Long-term Results of Mitral Plasty
Mitral insufficiency (MI) accounts for 24% of adult valvulopathies and affects 7% of subjects older than 75 years. They are the second leading cause of valvulopathy in Europe. The most common etiology is the associated valvular prolapse. Mitral surgery remains the reference treatment for symptomatic MI. The success of this procedure depends on the mitral valve geometry and the location of the prolapse. The site of the prolapse, whether monovalvular, localized to the posterior or anterior leaflet, or bivalvular, influences the possibilities and probably the long-term results of the plasty.
Primary Outcome Measures
- Survival defines as the time between the date of surgery and the death or date of the last news [6 months]
Patients operated between 1988 and 2011
Presence of a valvular prolapse diagnosed by echocardiography
Possibility of a complete clinical evaluation at the time of the initial echocardiography
Ischemic MI (including papillary muscle rupture)
Presence of significant aortic valvulopathy, mitral valvular stenosis or congenital disease
History of cardiac surgery
