The optimal treatment of mitral regurgitation concomitant to heart failure remains controversial. A lack of consensus between cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, because of limited studies and heterogeneous data, has led to vaguely defined guidelines and different handling in the clinical routine in the past. However, progress in the operative management with excellent results of individual experienced centers suggests that a variety of patients might benefit from surgical therapy. Each patient should be evaluated individually regarding the benefits of surgical therapy which requires an interdisciplinary approach ("heart team") due to the complex pathophysiology and demanding diagnostics.
