Coyan and colleagues report outcomes following double valve surgery in a cohort of patients who underwent operation between 2011 and 2017. Mitral repair was associated with better perioperative outcomes than mitral replacement when performed concomitantly with aortic valve replacement, though the authors note that differences in underlying comorbidities between the groups could have contributed to this result. Longer term outcomes were comparable between mitral repair and replacement.
