Severe mitral valve regurgitation patients are regularly seen in the Dutch Cardiology outpatient clinics. It is anticipated that in the Netherlands at least 2000-2500 asymptomatic patients with severe MV regurgitation are present. Based on surgical databases 15-20 patients per year will fit in with the Dutch AMR trial inclusion criteria.
In order to determine the best treatment option in asymptomatic patients with mitral valve regurgtation and preserved left ventricular function, challenge is to find these Dutch AMR study patients and to ensure mobilization of suitable candidates by both academic and non-academic centres.
