Okba F Ahmed, RabeaSalim Abduljabbar
Functional ischemic mitral regurgitation (MR) occur in up to 40% of patients after myocardial
infraction. Chronic ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) is a frequent and important complication
after myocardial infarction. This is a single center, retrospective, single cohort study, during two
year period (2018–2020). It included all the cases of combined operation of MV repair and CABG.
Follow-up of patients was performed through clinical visit.The patients were followed up for a
median duration of (six months to 1 year).All patients underwent transthoracic echocardiography
(TTE) and preoperative coronary angiography. Carotid Doppler study was requested for those
patients with previous stroke and/or peripheral vascular disease (PVD).The followings were
obtained; socio-demographic data, information regarding clinical courses, intraoperative findings,
and post-operative follow up data.The study included 68 cases, the mean age was 58 years (ranging
