Sitges M, Chikwe J. The Influence of Imaging on the Timing of Mitral Valve Repair. September 2019. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.9793256.
Marta Sitges of the Hospital Clinic at the University of Barcelona and Joanna Chikwe of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center debate the influence of imaging on the timing of degenerative mitral valve repair. They discuss the guidelines for patients with mitral regurgitation, evaluating the severity of the mitral regurgitation, and selecting when to intervene with surgery.
This debate was presented at the Heart Valve Society (HVS) Annual Meeting 2019 in Sitges, Spain, and is presented here with permission from HVS. For more information on upcoming events, please visit the HVS website.
