Repair vs. Replacement >%80 of MR are repairable Produces more physiological flow states It better preserves LV function Less thrombolic events Betters survival Long durability Lower risk of endocarditis
Meta-analysis repair versus replacement for ischemic mitral regurgitation. 2011 9 study mitral valve repair for IMR is associated with better short-term and long-term survival compared to mitral valve replacement
