Atrial Fibrillation in Robotic Assisted Mitral Valve Repair
Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.

About this study
The purpose of this study is:
- To assess whether corrective rhythm procedure during robotic mitral valve repair produce reliable long-term results.
- To determine the incidence of new onset atrial fibrillation after robotic mitral valve repair.
- To determine whether rhythm plays a role in long term valvular function.
- As a secondary aim, we would like to study the outcomes of small subset of patients (10 patients) who underwent robotically assisted left atrial mass removal.
- As a secondary aim, we also plan to look at our robotic patients and compare them to the conventional repair cohort to study the various echocardiographic parameters.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- All patients undergoing Robotic mitral valve repair from 2008-16.
- A similar number of patients undergoing conventional mitral valve repair.
- Non-consenting patients
- Patients undergoing other concomitant surgery
