Abstract

The result of this study showed that echocardiographic and Doppler parameters in patients with mild to moderate mitral stenosis did not undergo any major changes over a relatively long observation period, reflecting the substantial stability of the valve disease process. Thus, unless such patients experience clinical deterioration, a yearly echocardiographic examination appears to be unjustified.
