Abstract
Left atrial (LA) enlargement is a pathophysiological response to volume overload resulting from chronic mitral regurgitation (MR), is known as LA remodeling, and has been shown previously to be associated with cardioembolic events. Following mitral valve surgery (MVS), the left atrium may undergo reverse remodeling characterized by LA volume reduction. The study aim was to evaluate the incidence and determinants of postoperative left atrial reverse remodeling (LARR) following MVS.
