Left Atrial Reverse Remodeling Following Valve Surgery for Chronic Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation in Patients with Preoperative Sinus Rhythm: Effects on Long-Term Outcome.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Chronic degenerative mitral regurgitation (MR) with left atrial (LA) enlargement is predictive of adverse cardiovascular events including stroke, atrial fibrillation (AF), and impaired survival. Mitral valve surgery (MVS) initiates left atrial reverse remodeling (LARR) characterized by LA volume reduction and improved function. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of LARR on clinical outcome in patients with and without LARR following MVS.
