Pitfalls and Limitations In Measuring and Interpreting the Outcomes of Mitral Valve Repair | Mitral Valve Repair Center Skip to main content

We outline specific challenges in measuring and reporting outcomes of mitral valve repair. Although we illustrate these using the study of Serri and colleagues, the pitfalls are not unique to their study and apply to varying degrees in all studies of mitral valve repair. Knowledge of these pitfalls is necessary to improve the quality of outcomes-based research on mitral valve repair, to allow accurate interpretation of these studies, and also to permit useful extrapolation of results.
