Background: Mitral regurgitation (MR) is frequently associated with aortic stenosis. EchocardiographyPrevious reports have shown that coexisting mitral insufficiency can regress after aortic valve Mitral regurge;replacement (AVR) while others recommend dealing with examination. Aortic stenosis;Aim: The study aimed to assess the severity ofMR before and after aortic valve replacement for Aortic valve replacementaortic stenosis and to define the determinants of its postoperative evolution. Methods: For this purpose, 30 adult patients referred for aortic valve surgery underwent pre- and 1 month postoperative transthoracic echocardiography including 2D, MM, PW, CW and color Doppler examination.
