Prognostic significance of ischemic mitral regurgitation after non-Q-wave acute myocardial infarction.

J. Heart Valve Dis.. 2005 Nov;14(6):742-8, PMID: 16359053

The development of mitral regurgitation (MR) soon after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a recognized and frequent complication. Its negative impact on survival has been observed after Q-wave AMI, even when of a mild degree, and independently of left ventricular systolic function. Few data exist regarding MR after non-Q-wave AMI (nQ AMI), however. Hence, the study aim was to investigate the incidence, clinical predictors and prognostic implications of MR in the setting of nQ AMI.
