Abstract

Chronic mitral regurgitation is a progressive disorder that can produce myocardial dysfunction in the absence of symptoms. Improvements in surgical techniques have resulted in earlier intervention, at times in asymptomatic patients. This article discusses the factors that influence prognosis, reviews the evidence supporting earlier intervention and provides guidelines for the management of patients with this lesion.
