Comparing the Effectiveness of a Mitral Valve Repair Procedure in Combination With Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) Versus CABG Alone in People With Moderate Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation


Surgical Interventions for Moderate Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation




Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a procedure that people with coronary artery disease (CAD) may undergo to increase blood flow to the heart. During a CABG procedure, people who have a leak in one of the valves in the heart—the mitral valve—may at the same time undergo a procedure that repairs the valve. This study will evaluate whether people with moderate mitral valve leakage would be better off undergoing CABG plus the mitral valve repair procedure or undergoing CABG alone.
