    Imaging of mitral valve area by cardiac magnetic resonance in patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis
    Author(s): Ahmed Ibrahim Bedier* and Amal Sakrana

    Background: Rheumatic heart disease which is a result of rheumatic fever is still a major health problem in developing countries. Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis (MS) is the commonest delayed valvular affection as a consequence of rheumatic fever. The assessment of MS severity by measuring Mitral Valve Area (MVA) is very essential for patient management. Different imaging modalities are available for MVA assessment including echocardiography and Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR). Objectives: The aim of this study is to compare the planimetric MVA between CMR and two dimensional echocardiography in MS patients. Patients and methods: A forty adult patients with symptomatic mitral stenosis were included in the study. Other significant valvular lesions, atrial fibrillation, poor echocardiographic wi..
