Bottom Line: Posterior mitral annulus demonstrated a significant reduction in immediate postoperative period (P<0.001), remaining stable during the study, and presents a mean of reduction of 25.8% comparing with preoperative period.There was a significant reduction in anteroposterior and mediolateral diameters in the immediate postoperative period (P<0.001), although there was a significant increase in mediolateral diameter between immediate postoperative period and 1 year.Segmentar annuloplasty reduced the posterior component of mitral annulus, which remained stable in a 1-year-period.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Mitral valve repair is the treatment of choice to correct mitral insufficiency, although the literature related to mitral valve annulus behavior after mitral repair without use of prosthetic rings is scarce.

Objective: To analyze mitral annulus morphology and function using real time tridimensional echocardiography in individuals submitted to mitral valve repair with Double Teflon technique.

Methods: Fourteen patients with mitral valve insufficiency secondary to mixomatous degeneration that were submitted to mitral valve repair with the Double Teflon technique were included. Thirteen patients were in FC III/IV. Patients were evaluated in preoperative period, immediate postoperative period, 6 months and 1 year after mitral repair. Statistical analysis was made by repeated measures ANOVA test and was considered statistically significant P<0.05.

Results: There were no deaths, reoperation due to valve dysfunction, thromboembolism or endocarditis during the study. Posterior mitral annulus demonstrated a significant reduction in immediate postoperative period (P<0.001), remaining stable during the study, and presents a mean of reduction of 25.8% comparing with preoperative period. There was a significant reduction in anteroposterior and mediolateral diameters in the immediate postoperative period (P<0.001), although there was a significant increase in mediolateral diameter between immediate postoperative period and 1 year. There was no difference in mitral internal area variation over the cardiac cycle during the study.

Conclusion: Segmentar annuloplasty reduced the posterior component of mitral annulus, which remained stable in a 1-year-period. The variation in mitral annulus area during cardiac cycle remained stable during the study.

f06: Evolution of antero-posterior diameter of the mitral valve annulus during thestudy. Values =mean±standard deviation.*P<0.05 compared to the immediate postoperative period.

Mentions: The anteroposterior (AP) diameter of the mitral annulus in the preoperative, immediatepost-operative, 6 months and 1 year period were 3.47±1.18cm; 3.10±0.90cm;3.07±0.90cm and 3.18±0.85cm, respectively. Significant effect of conditionevaluation was observed during the study period (P<0.001). At theend of the study, there was a decrease in AP diameter of 8.3% compared to thepreoperative period. Figure 6 represents theevolution of AP diameter throughout the study. When comparing the preoperative and IPOperiod, there was evidenced a significant reduction in mean of this variable(P<0.001). When comparing the IPO and 6 months period, it wasobserved a slight further reduction of 1.0% in the mitral annulus AP diameter,statistically significant (P=0.012). The comparison between the IPO and1 year period showed an increase in measures of this variable throughout the study, butwithout statistical significance (P=0.051).
