Abstract

Myocardial ischemia, compromising myocardial function in acute and subsequently in chronic, has important physiopathological repercussions on the mitral valve. It determines the so-called functional ischemic mitral regurgitation (fIMR), resulting from the complex mitral anatomy and interdependence with the cardiac muscle. It also depends on the area and extent of ischemia. Current diagnostic techniques, primarily cardiac echocardiography and nuclear magnetic resonance of the heart, allow to study this complex and give indications on therapeutic treatment. The therapy is articulated, involving different figures such as the electrophysiologist, the clinical and interventional cardiologist, and the cardiac surgeon. Overall, the approach to this pathology is multidisciplinary and still a field to be explored for a tailored treatment on the patient.
