Background : Left atrial reverse remodeling occurs when the left atrial load is reduced after mitral valve repair for mitral valve regurgitation. However, several reports demonstrate mitral valve stenosis after mitral valve repair with a mitral ring, which leads to impaired left atrial reverse remodeling. Objective : To examine the effect of ring size and body size on left atrial reverse remodeling after mitral valve repair. Patients and Methods : Sixty patients underwent transthoracic echocardiography before and after mitral valve repair for mitral valve regurgitation in our hospital. The left atrial volume (LAV) was compared pre- and postoperatively. Ring-size/BSA (mm/m2) was defined as values to express the mismatch between ring-size and body size after mitral valve repair with a mitral ring. In addition, we examined which factors correlated with the left atrial volume reduction rate including ring-size/BSA. The mean ring size was 28 mm. The study interval was 17±6 months. Result : LAV changed from 82±37 ml to 47±20 ml postoperatively. The left atrial volume reduction rate was 39.8±18.6%. The peak pressure gradient measured from the transmitral flow (TMF p-PG) was 7.5±3.0 mmHg. Ring size showed a stronger correlation with body height than BSA. The ring-size/BSA was 17.7±2.1 mm/m2. Multivariate analysis shows that correlates of the LAV reduction rate were ring-size/BSA, pre LAV and age. Ring-size, TMF p-PG, ring annuloplasty only and postoperative TRPG did not show a strong correlation with the LAV reduction rate. Conclusion : A mismatch between body size and ring size is a negative factor for left atrial reverse remodeling after mitral valve repair with a mitral ring. The ring-size/BSA may be a useful factor to express grade of the mismatch.

It has been reported that diabetes mellitus is a significant risk factor for adverse outcomes after conventional CABG using cardiopulmonary bypass. However, the effects of diabetes on postoperative outcomes after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) are unclear. The effects of diabetes on early and mid-term results were studied by comparing the outcomes between 82 patients (65±5 years) with diabetes and 112 patients (68±11 years) without diabetes. The diabetic group included a greater preoperative presence of renal insufficiency (22.0% vs 8.9%, <i>p</i>=0.011) and history of cerebral vascular accident (25.6% vs 11.6%, <i>p</i>=0.012). Strategies, including graft choice, were not changed by presence of diabetes. The use of bilateral internal thoracic arteries (70.7% diabetes vs 67.0% nondiabetes), and frequency of total arterial bypass were similar in the 2 groups. The number of distal anastomoses was higher in the diabetic group (3.0±0.9 vs 2.7±0.9, <i>p</i>=0.042). The operation time and frequency of blood transfusion were similar in both groups. There was no hospital death in either group. Although mechanical ventilation time and postoperative ICU stay did not differ, hospital stay was significantly longer in the diabetic group (16.2 vs 13.3 days, <i>p</i>=0.0085). Postoperative major complications including atrial fibrillation were not significantly different between the 2 groups. Minor wound infection occurred in 2 patients, 1 in each group. There was no mediastinitis in either group. During the mean follow-up period of 20.8 months (1-39), there were two sudden deaths in the diabetic group, but no other cardiac death in either group. Cardiac event-free rate did not differ between the 2 groups. Although hospital stay in diabetic patients was longer than that in nondiabetic patients, early and mid-term results of OPCAB were not significantly affected by diabetes mellitus.
