Differentiating between acute and chronic mitral incompetence
The usual triad of dyspnoea, haemodynamic instability and shock is not always present in patients with acute mitral incompetence. [1] Auscultation can be misleading, as the new murmur may be subtle and masked by the compensatory tachycardia.
[2] The use of TEE has become increasingly important in the assessment of mitral incompetence as it is highly specific and sensitive for numerous causes and helps to localise the problem area with more precision.
The general management of acute mitral incompetence includes reducing afterload and maintaining a fast-normal heart rate (80-100 bpm).
