Abstract: Preoperative left ventricular systolic function is an important prognostic factor in patients undergoing mitral valve surgery. Preoperative myocardial deformation may be impaired without reduction in conventional indices such as ejection fraction (EF). Strain rate (SR) imaging is very sensitive in detecting regional systolic abnormalities and might allow diagnosis of subclinical changes in systolic left ventricular (LV) function before surgery. We aimed to investigate the value of preoperative regional myocardial peak systolic SR as a predictor of postoperative LV systolic function in patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) undergoing surgery.
