Abstract

Mitral valve replacement is indicated in every case with severe mitral valve disease in which the conservative treatment is not able to maintain the clinical status of the patient [1]. In this paper, we analyzed the long-term follow-up of mitral valve replacement in children with rheumatic mitral disease using the Bjork—Shiley prosthesis.
