Annuloplasty Plus CABG Helpful in Mitral Regurgitation


When compared with CABG alone, CABG plus mitral annuloplasty in patients with moderate ischemic mitral regurgitation appears to have multiple benefits, according to findings from a small study. When compared with CABG alone, the combination approach improved functional capacity, left ventricular reverse remodeling, mitral regurgitation severity, and B-type natriuretic peptide levels.
