Rheumatic Mitral Valve Surgery: A Retrospective Analysis of 1025 Cases


The purpose of this study is to highlight the unique features of rheumatic mitral valve disease as well as surgical treatment options. We’ll look at which prognostic factors influenced long-term mitral valve repair and replacement results. The researchers looked at 1025 patients who underwent mitral valve surgery at the Ibn Sina Hospital in Rabat, Morocco, between January 2, 2001 and April 5, 2012. Prior to surgery, a clinical and paraclinical examination has been established. The most prevalent valvular disorders are mitral stenosis and functional tricuspid insufficiency. The gesture was the primary intervention in 93% of patients, followed by mitral valve replacement in 90% of cases and plasty in 10% of cases. Conclusion: When choosing a surgical approach that has a substantial impact on post-operative outcomes, these patients demand a more accurate assessment. This study looks at the factors that influence whether or not patients with rheumatic disease should have mitral repair surgery, as well as the effectiveness of current repair methods versus prosthetic valve replacement in developing countries.
