This is called "mitral regurgitation
," and may cause a sound called a murmur.
This new code reimburses enCor SQ's unique feature which allows the surgeon to adjust the implant to address recurrent regurgitation
with a short, minimally invasive procedure.
In a multicenter feasibility trial including over 50 patients, Cardioband was shown to significantly reduce annular size, with significant improvement in mitral regurgitation
In the United States, mitral regurgitation
(MR) is the most common valve disease, affecting nearly one in 10 people age 75 and older.
Advanced age did not correlate with worsened aortic regurgitation
(AR) but did correlate with worsened MR.
5%, a delay of activation between septum and lateral wall of about 100 msec and with a significant improvement of the clinical status (NYHA IIa), and of the LVEF (about 50%) and with a residual mild mitral regurgitation
Utilizing the heart's natural structures, the device is intended to reduce mitral annulus dilatation upon deployment, thereby significantly reducing functional mitral regurgitation
Key Words: mitral repair, mitral valvuloplasty, transoesophageal echocardiography, transthoracic echocardiography, residual mitral regurgitation
Aortic valve repair or replacement also is indicated for symptomatic patients with severe aortic regurgitation
irrespective of left-ventricular systolic function, and in those with severe AR who have a need to undergo cardiac or aortic surgery, explained Dr.
The greater the lifetime use of pergolide, the worse a patient's composite echocardiographic valvular regurgitation
score, he continued.
Abstract: Mitral regurgitation
is usually tolerated well in pregnancy, mainly because of left ventricular unloading due to the physiologic decrease in systemic vascular resistance (SVR).
He had no previous history of dysphagia, acid reflux, or regurgitation
Neil Weissman of Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington found that the small increases in prevalence of mild aortic and mitral regurgitation
among patients treated for 2-3 months with dexfenfluramine were not present at follow-up 3-5 months after the drug was discontinued.
In his study, McAllister looked at fossil feces -- called coprolites -- and regurgitation
pellets found in the Hamilton quarry in Greenwood County, Kans.
We are pleased with the short- and medium-term clinical outcomes to date using NeoChord's technology to treat patients suffering from mitral regurgitation
