Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasingly prevalent in patients undergoing mitral valve replacement (MVR). While CKD is known to result in suboptimal outcomes for patients with mitral valve disease, there is limited literature evaluating the long-term outcomes and cardiac remodeling of patients with CKD undergoing MVR. We present the first analysis coupling long-term outcomes of combined morbidity, mortality, and cardiac remodeling post-MVR in patients with CKD.
