Predictors of outcome after surgery for mitral regurgitation

LV, left ventricular.
Primary predictors
▸ Clinical symptoms caused by mitral regurgitation
▸ LV end systolic volume or dimension
▸ LV ejection fraction
Secondary factors
▸ Comorbid diseaseCoronary artery disease
Other valve involvement
▸ Other measures of LV functionWall stress
LV maximum dP/dt
▸ Surgical procedureMitral valve replacement
Mitral valve repair
▸ Other sequelae of volume overloadLeft atrial size
LV end diastolic pressure
Pulmonary artery pressure
Right ventricular ejection fraction
Atrial fibrillation
