Hi Adam, One of the questions suggested in your website to ask to prospective surgeons is "What is your residual mitral regurgitation rate? (regurgitation rate refers to patients who continue to have a leakage after a valve repair/replacement). Do you know if it means what percentage of the totality of those surgeons' patients (for instance, 5% of total patients still have leakage)? Or does it mean what leakage percentage of total patients (for instance, 3% leakage)? Thanks!
Mitral Valve Repair with Dr. Alfredo Trento at Cedars Sinai
Journal posted on February 18, 2021
I've been diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse with Severe Regurgitation. I'm considering having my MV repaired by Dr. Alfredo Trento at Cedars Sinai. Has anybody had this specific type of surgery with Dr. Trento? How long ago? What was your experience?
