|Abstract||Background and aim of the study: The study aim was to investigate the factors that affect changes in cardiac output (CO) following balloon mitral valvulotomy (BMV), which at present are essentially unknown.Methods: Among a total of 168 patients, clinical, echocardiographic and hemodynamic data before and after BMV were compared between patients in group I (<15% increase in CO after BMV) and group II (>15% increase). A multiple logistic regression analysis was used to identify factors that were predictive of an increase in CO.Results: Before BMV, the mean CO was 3.9 +/- 0.9 and 4.1 +/- 0.7 I/min (p = NS) in groups I and II, respectively. Group I patients were more symptomatic, with a greater proportion in NYHA class >= 3. The pulmonary artery mean pressure (PAMP) was also higher in group I patients (51 +/- 20 mmHg) than in group II (35 +/- 12 mmHg) (p <0.03). Pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) was also higher in group I than in group II (6.9 +/- 3.6 and 4.0 +/- 3.0 Woods units, respectively; p <0.02). Right ventricular function, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), heart rate, mitral valve area, transmitral mean gradient, Wilkin's valve score and incidence of atrial fibrillation were similar in both groups. After BMV, the CO was 4.1 +/- 0.8 and 4.8 +/- 0.8 I/min (p <0.005) in groups I and II, respectively. Likewise, there was similar inter-group increase in valve area and a decrease in mean gradient. The PAMP was reduced in both groups compared to pre-BMV, but remained higher in group I than in group II (35 +/- 17 and 21 +/- 9 mmHg, respectively; p <0.05). PVR was decreased in group II and remained higher in group I (2.8 +/- 1.8 and 6.1 +/- 2.6 Woods units, respectively; p <0.05). The magnitude of iatrogenic interatrial shunt was similar in both groups. Following BMV, a >50% fall in PVR was predictive of an increase in CO by 15% (OR 5.7, 95% CI 3.1-7.8).Conclusion: Patients with a post-BMV increase in CO had a lower pre-procedure PAMP and PVR. In group 1, a high PVR ('second stenosis') did not fall after BMV. In spite of an apparent overall improvement in hemodynamics, there was a suboptimal rise in CO. PAMP, despite a significant fall, remained higher than normal. The pulmonary hemodynamics were seen to influence changes in CO after BMV, despite similar changes in valve area and mean gradients, with similar Wilkin's scores and right ventricular function between the two groups. A fall of >50% in PVR is predictive of a post-BMV increase in CO.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
