Abstract

Background. Mitral valve intervention combined with coronary artery bypass surgery is inevitable in the case of severe mitral regurgitation in patients with coronary artery disease because the prognosis is poor without mitral correction. The best treatment protocol for patients with a moderate degree of mitral regurgitation is under debate. To clarify the optimal management for these patients, we evaluated the progress of mitral regurgitation after isolated coronary artery bypass surgery in cases of ischemic mitral regurgitation.
