Kaplan-Meier curve for the long-term survival after MVR. Legend: HR calculated by COX regression was 1.171 (95%CI 0.868–1.580; p = 0.300). After adjustment for age, pulmonary hypertension, prior AVR, LVEDD, LVESD, left/right atrium (mm), chordae elongation and log EuroSCORE the HR was 0.926 (95%CI 0.642–1.3135 p = 0.681) in favour of closed annuloplasty ring. In the multivariate Cox analysis only data of patients with available values for all variables taken into account for adjustment were included (n = 820)
