Mitral and aortic regurgitation following transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
Bottom Line: Significant MR and AR had a significant impact on mortality only when associated with each other (log rank p<0.0001).At multivariate Cox regression modelling concomitant significant MR and AR were independently associated with mortality (OR 3.2, 95% CI 1.54 to 5.71, p=0.002).Combined MR and AR had a significant impact on a patient's prognosis.

Mentions: Significant (grade 3 or 4) mitral regurgitation was present in 27.6% at baseline examination, in 16% of patients prior to discharge, in 8.7% of patients at a 1-month follow-up and in 2.9% of patients at a 6-month follow-up (p≤0.0001 for all vs baseline). Changes in the mitral regurgitation grades during follow-up are presented in figure 1.
