RESUMO

Mitral valve is a complex cardiac structure composed of several components to work in synchrony to allow blood flow into left ventricle during diastole and not to allow blood flow into left atrium during systole. Accessory mitral valve tissue (AMVT) was defined as existence of any additional part and parcel of valvular structure which has an attachment to normal mitral valve apparatus in left-sided cardiac chambers. AMVT may present itself in different clinical circumstances ranging from a silent clinical course to thromboembolic events, heart failure, left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and severe arrhythmia. This article reviews the clinical perspectives of AMVT in terms of symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment, providing a new anatomical classification regarding the location of AMVT. Briefly type I refers to AMVT having attachments on the supra leaflets level, type II refers to attachments on the mitral leaflets, and type III refers to attachment below the mitral leaflets. Increased awareness and widespread use of echocardiographic techniques would increase recognition of AMVT in patients with heart murmurs but otherwise healthy and in those with left ventricular outflow tract obstruction or tissue which causes subaortic stenosis and with unexplained cerebrovascular events.

RESUMO

The mechanism of systolic annular expansion in mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is not clarified. Since annular expansion is systolic outward shift of MV leaflet/chorda tissue complex at superior and outer ends, annular expansion could be related to inward (superior) shift of the complex at another inferior and inner end of the papillary muscle (PM) tip and/or systolic lengthening of the tissue complex, especially MV leaflets.MV annulus systolic expansion, PMs' systolic superior shift, and MV leaflets' systolic lengthening were evaluated by echocardiography with a speckle tracking analysis in 25 normal subjects, 25 subjects with holo-systolic MVP and 20 subjects with late-systolic MVP.PMs' superior shift, MV leaflets' lengthening, MV annular area at the onset of systole and subsequent MV annulus expansion were significantly greater in late-systolic MVP than in holo-systolic MVP (4.6 ± 1.6 versus 1.5 ± 0.7 mm/m2, 2.5 ± 1.4 versus 0.6 ± 2.0 mm/m2, 6.8 ± 2.5 versus 5.7 ± 1.0 cm2/m2 and 1.6 ± 0.8 versus 0.1 ± 0.5 cm2/m2, P < 0.001, respectively). Multivariate analysis identified MV leaflets' lengthening and PMs' superior shift as independent factors associated with MV annular expansion.Conclusions: These results suggest that systolic MV annular expansion in MVP is related to abnormal MV leaflets' lengthening and PMs' superior shift.

RESUMO

Based on current guidelines, 15% to 20% of patients undergoing mitral valve repair for regurgitation develop left ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction < 50%-55%) despite a normal baseline. Two schools of thought have been debated: preexisting myocardial disease or suboptimal intraoperative myocardial protection. In our view, they could be reconciled. It is well recognized that left ventricular ejection fraction with a standard cut off at 50%-55% has limited sensitivity in detecting early systolic impairment in mitral regurgitation patients. Mitral regurgitation also leads to mitochondrial oxidative stress, thus rendering the myocardium more susceptible to ischemia-reperfusion injury and precipitating postoperative cardiac dysfunction. The fall in left ventricular ejection fraction early after mitral valve repair was shown to be caused by the reduction in both myocardial contractility and left ventricular stroke volume. To mitigate the risk to myocardial reperfusion injury, appropriate cardioplegia volume and distribution and well-defined surgical repair processes are equally important. We use transesophageal echocardiography-guided cardioplegia delivery, imaging the intramyocardial flow and ensuring adequate protection of the subendocardium during mitral valve repair. Mild aortic regurgitation on a beating heart often leads to left ventricular dilatation with diminished cardioplegia flow in the myocardium, thus requiring direct ostia cardioplegia. Systematic transesophageal echocardiography assessment before surgery is essential for establishing the mitral regurgitation mechanisms and translating them into precise surgical repair strategies. The benefits of transesophageal echocardiography-guided cardioplegia delivery warrant further clinical trials in order to evolve into part of a high surgical standard.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Poor reproducibility in assessment of mitral regurgitation (MR) has been reported. AIM: To investigate the robustness of echocardiographic MR assessment in 2019, based on improvements in technology and the skill of echocardiographists regarding MR quantification. METHODS: Reproducibility in parameters of MR severity and global rating were tested using transthoracic echocardiography in 25 consecutive patients independently analysed by 16 junior and senior cardiologists specialized in echocardiography (400 analyses per parameter). RESULTS: Overall interobserver agreement for mechanism definition, effective regurgitant orifice area (EROA) and regurgitant volume (RVol) was moderate, and was lower in secondary MR. Interobserver agreement was substantial for EROA [0.61, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.45-0.75] and moderate for RVol with the PISA method (0.50, 95% CI 0.33-0.56) in senior physicians and was fair in junior physicians (0.33, 95% CI 0.19-0.51 and 0.36, 95% CI 0.36-0.43, respectively). Using a multiparametric approach, overall interobserver agreement for grading MR severity was fair (0.30), was slightly better in senior than in junior physicians (0.31 vs. 0.28, respectively) with substantial or almost perfect agreement more frequently observed in senior versus junior physicians (52% vs. 36%, respectively). CONCLUSION: Reproducible transthoracic echocardiography MR quantification remains challenging in 2019, despite the expected high skills of echocardiographers regarding MR at the time of dedicated percutaneous intervention. The multiparametric approach does not entirely alleviate the substantial dispersion in measurement of MR severity parameters, whereas reader experience seems to partially address the issue. Our study emphasizes the continuing need for multimodality imaging and education in the evaluation of MR among cardiologists.

RESUMO

Symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA) is a serum biomarker of renal damage in dogs. Moreover, SDMA concentration is an independent predictor of development of severe heart failure (HF) in humans with cardiac disease. This study evaluates whether the serum concentration of SDMA in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) is influenced by the severity of heart disease, pulmonary hypertension (PH) and treatment of HF. A total of 99 client-owned dogs were included in this retrospective case-control study; 78 dogs were affected by MMVD and classified according to the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) guidelines, and 21 were healthy controls. For each dog, history, physical examination, complete blood count, biochemical profile, thoracic radiography, 6-lead standard electrocardiogram and trans-thoracic echocardiography were available. Comparisons were performed between groups of dogs belonging to different ACVIM stages and between dogs with and without PH. The median SDMA concentration was neither significantly different among groups of dogs in different disease stages (overall P = 0.010), nor among dogs with MMVD, nor between those with [14.5 µg/dl (10.5-18.8)] and without PH [13 µg/dl (9-17.2)] (P = 0.295). The concentration of SDMA did not differ between dogs when considering the combined effect of the ACVIM group and cardiac treatment (overall P = 0.486). Furthermore, no correlation was found between SDMA concentration and radiographic and echocardiographic parameters associated with increased MMVD severity. In conclusion, this study failed to demonstrate the presence of renal impairment in dogs with MMVD, and the increase in renal parameters in some dogs in the more advanced stage of MMVD could be attributed to pre-renal azotemia.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Emergency or urgent surgery is often required in patients with papillary muscle rupture and active mitral valve infective endocarditis. The aim of this study was to analyze the outcomes of patients with active endocarditis who underwent emergency or urgent mitral valve repair. METHODS: From 2005 to 2014, 154 ischemic mitral regurgitation patients and 41 infective endocarditis patients underwent mitral valve repair in our institution; 23 had emergency operations due to papillary muscle rupture, and 18 with active infective endocarditis underwent urgent surgery. RESULTS: Cardiopulmonary bypass time (141.4 ± 43.3 versus 145.3 ± 46.5 min) and crossclamp time (77.7 ± 34.1 versus 79.2 ± 33.0 min) were similar in the papillary muscle rupture and elective ischemic mitral regurgitation subgroups, and major postoperative complications were comparable. Hospital mortality was 17.4% in the papillary muscle rupture subgroup and 8.4% in the elective ischemic mitral regurgitation subgroup. Cardiopulmonary bypass time (103.6 ± 37.0 versus 75.5 ± 20.8 min) and crossclamp time (61.7 ± 21.2 versus 45.3 ± 18.0 min) were significantly longer in infective endocarditis patients. There were no major complications or hospital deaths. Eight years postoperatively, overall survival was 94.4% and 86.5% in the papillary muscle rupture and elective ischemic mitral regurgitation subgroups, respectively (p = 0.730). Overall survival was 100% in both infective endocarditis subgroups. CONCLUSION: The feasibility and effectiveness of emergency or urgent mitral valve repair in patients with papillary muscle rupture and active infective endocarditis are satisfactory. Early and mid-term outcomes are comparable to those of elective operations.

RESUMO

Since mitral valve (MV) complex (MVC) longitudinally bridges left ventricular (LV) base end and its middle, insufficient MVC longitudinal tissue length (TL) elongation relative to whole LV myocardial longitudinal TL elongation could limit LV-base-longitudinal-TL elongation, leading to predominant LV-base-transverse-TL elongation, constituting LV spherical remodeling. In 30 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), 30 with aortic regurgitation (AR), and 30 controls, LV sphericity, LV-apex- or base-transverse- and longitudinal-TL, MVC-longitudinal-TL, and whole-LV-longitudinal-TL were measured by three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. Ratio of each measure versus mean normal value (i.e., LV-apex-transverse-TL ratio) was considered to express the directional and regional tissue elongation. [LV-base-longitudinal-TL ratio/global-LV-TL ratio] and [MVC-longitudinal-TL ratio/whole-LV-longitudinal-TL ratio] were obtained as the degree of LV-base-longitudinal-TL or MVC-longitudinal-TL elongation relative to the whole LV elongation. LV-apex-transverse-, LV-apex-longitudinal-, and LV-base-transverse-TL ratios were significantly increased (1.27 to 1.42, P < 0.01) in both DCM and AR, while the LV-base-longitudinal-TL ratio was not increased in DCM [1.04 ± 0.19, not significant (ns)] and only modestly increased in AR (1.12 ± 0.21, P < 0.01). Whole-LV-longitudinal-TL ratio was significantly increased in both DCM and AR (1.22 ± 0.18 and 1.20 ± 0.16, P < 0.01), while MVC-longitudinal-TL ratio was not or only modestly increased in both groups (1.07 ± 0.15, ns, and 1.12 ± 0.17, P = 0.02, respectively). Multivariable analysis revealed that LV sphericity was independently related to a reduced [LV-base-longitudinal-TL ratio/global-LV-TL ratio] (standard ß = -0.42, P < 0.01), which was further related to a reduced [MVC-longitudinal-TL ratio/whole-LV-longitudinal-TL ratio] (standard ß = 0.72, P < 0.01). These are consistent with the hypothesis that relatively less MVC-longitudinal-TL elongation in the process of primary LV myocardial tissue elongation may limit LV-base-longitudinal-TL elongation, contributing to LV spherical remodeling.NEW & NOTEWORTHY Left ventricular (LV) spherical remodeling is associated with poor prognosis and less-effective cardiac performance, which commonly develops in dilated cardiomyopathy. However, its mechanism remains unclear. We hypothesized and subsequently clarified that less mitral valve complex (MVC) tissue longitudinal elongation relative to whole LV myocardial tissue longitudinal elongation is related to disproportionately less LV base longitudinal versus transverse myocardial tissue elongation, constituting spherical remodeling. This study suggests modification of MVC tissue elongation could be potential therapeutic targets.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: We retrospectively analyzed our experience of mitral valve repair for native mitral valve endocarditis in a single institution. METHODS: From January 1991 to October 2011, 171 consecutive patients underwent surgery for infective endocarditis. Of these, 147 (86%) had mitral valve repair. At the time of surgery, 98 patients had healed (group A) and 49 had active infective endocarditis (group B). Repair procedures included resection of all infected tissue and thick restricted post-infection tissue, leaflet and annulus reconstruction with treated autologous pericardium, chordal reconstruction with polytetrafluoroethylene sutures, and ring annuloplasty if necessary. Fifty-two (35%) patients required concomitant procedures. The study endpoints were overall survival, freedom from reoperation, and freedom from valve-related events. The median follow-up was 78 months. RESULTS: There was one hospital death (hospital mortality 0.7%). Survival at 10 years was 88.5% ± 3.5% with no significant difference between the two groups (p = 0.052). Early reoperation was required in 4 patients in group B due to persistent infection or procedure failure. Freedom from reoperation at 5 years was 99% ± 1.0% in group A and 89.6 ± 4.0% in group B (p = 0.024). Event-free survival at 10 years was 79.3% ± 4.8% (group A: 83.4% ± 5.9%, group B: 72.6% ± 6.9%, p = 0.010). CONCLUSIONS: Mitral valve repair was highly successful using autologous pericardium, chordal reconstruction, and ring annuloplasty if required. Long-term results were acceptable in terms survival, freedom from reoperation, and event-free survival. Mitral valve repair is recommended for mitral infective endocarditis in most patients.

RESUMO

A mitral L-wave indicates advanced diastolic dysfunction with elevated left ventricular filling pressure. Previous studies have reported that the presence of a mitral L-wave is associated with a poor prognosis in patients with heart failure. However, whether the L-wave can predict adverse events in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) is still unclear. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of a mitral L-wave in patients with HC, and the prognosis of patients with or without an L-wave. We analyzed 445 patients with HC. The end points of this study were HC-related death, such as sudden death or potentially lethal arrhythmic events, heart failure-related death, and stroke-related death. A mitral L-wave was defined as a distinct mid-diastolic flow velocity after the E wave with a peak velocity >20 cm/s. The prevalence of an L-wave was 32.4% in patients with HC. Patients with an L-wave were significantly younger, more likely to be women, had higher New York Heart Association functional class, and had a higher prevalence of atrial fibrillation than did patients without an L-wave. Patients with an L-wave had a significantly higher incidence of HC-related death compared with those without an L-wave (log-rank, p < 0.001). The L-wave was an independent determinant of HC-related death in multivariate analysis adjusted for imbalanced baseline variables (adjusted hazard ratio 2.38; 95% confidence interval 1.42 to 4.01; p = 0.001). In conclusion, the presence of a mitral L-wave may be associated with adverse outcome in patients with HC.

RESUMO

Patients with Shone complex (SC) have multiple left-sided obstructive lesions and thus are at risk for left ventricular (LV) remodeling, LV diastolic dysfunction and pulmonary hypertension. Yet, to date, there has been no description of hemodynamics in adults with SC. Retrospective chart review of 25 patients with SC who underwent cardiac catheterization at Mayo Clinic, MN between 2002 and 2019 was performed. SC was defined as multiple left-sided obstructive lesions in the presence of an anatomically abnormal mitral valve. Median age was 32 years (22.5, 42) and 15 patients (60%) were female. The majority of patients (84%) had history of coarctation of the aorta, 10 (40%) had subaortic stenosis, 11 (44%) had prior aortic valve replacement, and 10 (40%) had prior mitral valve replacement. Structural disease at the time of catheterization which warranted intervention within the next year was present in 13 patients (52%). The mean LV end-diastolic pressure was 21.3 ± 9.0 mm Hg (>15 mm Hg in 71%), pulmonary artery peak systolic pressure was 55.4 ± 13.4 mm Hg, and the pulmonary artery mean pressure was 37.0 ± 9.4 mm Hg (>20 mm Hg in 96%). During a mean follow-up of 8.3 ± 4.4 years, there were 7 deaths (28%) and 3 additional patients (12%) underwent cardiac transplantation. In conclusion, adults with SC who underwent catheterization showed significant left-sided heart and pulmonary vascular remodeling. Elevated LV end-diastolic pressure and pulmonary artery pressures were highly prevalent. There were high mortality and cardiac transplant rates in our cohort.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: We reviewed the midterm results of our approach for mitral valve repair with the use of standardized loops. METHODS: In a retrospective single-center study, mitral repairs performed between November 2015 and December 2019 with the standardized loop technique were included. Predefined loops of 15 and 25 mm (Gore-Tex) were implanted for posterior or anterior mitral prolapses, respectively. Isolated or concomitant mitral repairs were performed by either a sternotomy or minithoracotomy. Mean follow-up was 25.3 ± 14.7 months. RESULTS: Among 92 patients operated on for mitral repair during this period, 65 had repair with the standardized loop technique. They were mostly men (73.8%) and the mean age was 65.1 ± 9.7 years. Valve prolapse was mainly posterior (87.7%), and cordal rupture was seen in 81.5% of cases. The procedures were carried out by a minithoracotomy in 49.2% of patients. Isolated mitral repairs represented 63.1% of cases. Crossclamp and bypass times were 102 ± 22.8 min and 144.7 ± 34.9 min, respectively. The mean number of loops implanted was 2.7 ± 0.9. No patient left the operating room with moderate or severe mitral regurgitation. Postoperative morbidity was 18.4% (12 patients) and 30-day mortality was 3.1% (2 patients). Overall 4-year survival and freedom from reoperation for mitral repair failure were 84.4% and 91.7%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The standardized loop technique for mitral repair showed good midterm results. This technique can be valuable in the armamentarium of mitral repairs. Further evaluation is needed for long-term follow-up.

RESUMO

A 16-year-old girl with history of treated congenital mitral valve disease and signs of respiratory infection was admitted to our paediatric cardiology department. She was tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. Despite her severe pre-existing cardiac conditions with pulmonary hypertension, atrial arrhythmias and mitral valve stenosis, the infection did not lead to any cardiac or pulmonary deterioration. In adults, cardiac co-morbidities are known risk factors for a severe course of coronavirus disease 2019 infections. This case illustrates that in children even severe cardiac disease is not necessarily associated with a severe course of coronavirus disease 2019.

RESUMO

In bileaflet mitral valve prolapse (BMVP) systolic leaflet displacement creates a pocket of blood on the left ventricular (LV) side of the leaflets, but on the atrial side of the annulus. This blood is excluded from the LV end-systolic volume if the mitral valve annulus is used to determine the most basal extent of the LV. The purpose of this study is to describe the quantitative implications of defining the LV base on mitral regurgitant severity and LV systolic function in BMVP. In 30 consecutive patients (53% male, 58 ± 14 years) with BMVP, LV endocardial and epicardial borders were determined from SSFP images. The LV base at end-systole was defined by the "Functional" method (at the mitral valve annulus) or the "Anatomic" method (at the mitral valve leaflets). Regurgitant volume was the difference between the LV stroke volume and mean forward flow. LV myocardial strain measurements were determined from the short axis endocardial and epicardial borders. The "Functional" method resulted in higher regurgitant volumes (mean difference: 22 ml, range 0-40 ml) and higher ejection fractions (mean difference: 9%, range 0-21%). The correlation between LV end-diastolic volume and regurgitant volume was better with the "Functional" method (r = 0.79, p < 0.0001) than the "Anatomic" method (r = 0.67, p < 0.0001). The correlation between global myocardial radial strain and LV EF was better with the "Functional" method (r = 0.86, p < 0.0001) than the "Anatomic" method (r = 0.68, p < 0.0001). In BMVP, the base of the LV should be defined at the level of the mitral valve annulus so that regurgitant volume most accurately reflects the functional significance of the mitral valve disease and LVEF most accurately reflects global systolic LV function. Defining the basal extent of the LV at the mitral valve leaflets leads to substantially lower regurgitant volumes and lower ejection fractions that could have important clinical consequences.

RESUMO

AIMS: The preprocedural assessment of outcomes and patients' prognosis after interventional therapy of functional MR (FMR) is uncertain. Therefore, we aim to develop an easy-to-handle scoring system for adequate prediction of individual outcomes in patients with FMR after the interventional treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively used medical data of patients with symptomatic FMR, who underwent transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) from January 2014 to August 2016 in our heart center. All patients had the mean follow-up of 18 months. All clinical and echocardiographic data originate from the "Bonner Mitral Valve Register Database". RESULTS: We included 105 patients (76,7±8,8 years, 50,6% female) with symptomatic (NYHA functional class>II) moderate-to-severe or severe FMR at surgical high-risk. We modified the MIDA-Score for degenerative MR (DMR) according to the varying underlying pathomechanisms of FMR, called as "The modified MIDA Score". We found all-cause mortality of 7% within 18 months after the procedure. 34,1% of our cohort was rehospitalized; 90% of those were due to cardiovascular causes. The modified MIDA score was found to be a strong predictor for mortality and rehospitalization in patients with FMR (AUC: 0,89) and superior to the other conventional scoring systems in prediction of mortality (The modified MIDA-Score: AUC: 0,8, EuroSCORE II: AUC: 0,57, STS-Score: AUC: 0,51). The logistic regression analysis showed the modified MIDA score > 9 points to be the strongest predictor for mortality and rehospitalization after TMVR (OR: 3,35, p = 0,011). CONCLUSION: The modified MIDA score was found to be a promising, easy-to-handle, elementary scoring system for adequate prediction of individual postinterventional prognosis in patients with FMR undergoing TMVR. Further evaluation and validation of this novel scoring system in prospective multicentric studies with a large number of patients is warranted.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: A comprehensive non-invasive evaluation of bioprosthetic mitral valve (BMV) function can be challenging. We describe a novel method to assess BMV effective orifice area (EOA) based on phase contrast (PC) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) data. We compare the performance of this new method to Doppler and in vitro reference standards. METHODS: Four sizes of normal BMVs (27, 29, 31, 33 mm) and 4 stenotic BMVs (27 mm and 29 mm, with mild or severe leaflet obstruction) were evaluated using a CMR- compatible flow loop. BMVs were evaluated with PC-CMR and Doppler methods under flow conditions of; 70 mL, 90 mL and 110 mL/beat (n = 24). PC-EOA was calculated as PC-CMR flow volume divided by the PC- time velocity integral (TVI). RESULTS: PC-CMR measurements of the diastolic peak velocity and TVI correlated strongly with Doppler values (r = 0.99, P < 0.001 and r = 0.99, P < 0.001, respectively). Across all conditions tested, the Doppler and PC-CMR measurement of EOA (1.4 ± 0.5 vs 1.5 ± 0.7 cm2, respectively) correlated highly (r = 0.99, P < 0.001), with a minimum bias of 0.13 cm2, and narrow limits of agreement (- 0.2 to 0.5 cm2). CONCLUSION: We describe a novel method to assess BMV function based on PC measures of transvalvular flow volume and velocity integration. PC-CMR methods can be used to accurately measure EOA for both normal and stenotic BMV's and may provide an important new parameter of BMV function when Doppler methods are unobtainable or unreliable.

RESUMO

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) has emerged as the gold standard in assessing ventricular mass, volume, and systolic function. Due to these and other strengths, CMR has increasingly been used to study valvular heart disease (VHD) and resultant cardiac remodeling. By using CMR to assess flow, limitations in echocardiographic assessment of VHD can be overcome, particularly in regurgitant lesions. The following article reviews the current role of CMR imaging in studying disease severity and myocardial remodeling in patients with VHD.

RESUMO

The term atrial functional mitral regurgitation refers to a newly recognized disease entity in which mitral regurgitation occurs secondary to left atrial disease, without left ventricular dilatation and intrinsic mitral valve disease, typically in the setting of long-standing atrial fibrillation. Recent evidence suggests that atrial functional mitral regurgitation is associated with increased risk of death and heart failure re-hospitalization. The etiology, pathophysiology, and mechanism of atrial functional mitral regurgitation is not completely understood but they should not be regarded as the same as for the conventional type of functional mitral regurgitation secondary to left ventricular dilatation and dysfunction. Mitral annular dilatation, atriogenic leaflet distortion, insufficient leaflet remodeling, and subtle left ventricular dysfunction may play a role in the pathogenesis of atrial functional mitral regurgitation. The therapeutic and surgical considerations of atrial functional mitral regurgitation are different from those of ventricular functional mitral regurgitation. In this review, we assess current evidence regarding this new disease entity and propose a new surgical approach based on up-to-date understanding and experience of this condition.
