Do you have cardiomyopathy that has led to moderate or severe mitral regurgitation? This study is exploring the best surgical technique to repair mitral regurgitation by comparing two procedures called undersizing mitral annuloplasty (UMA) and papillary muscle approximation (PMA). A UMA is a common procedure that involves implanting a prosthetic ring onto the mitral valve to stop the valve from leaking. A PMA is a newer technique in which a suture draws together the two muscles that connect the mitral valve to the heart muscle prior to performing UMA. To participate in this study, you must be 18 years old or older and have never had a mitral valve repair procedure. This study takes place in Atlanta, Georgia.

Are you an adult who has had a heart CT or PET scan? This study is using new software to combine information from two imaging tests (computed tomography [CT] and positron emission tomography [PET] scans) to noninvasively measure blood flow in the heart. To participate in this study, you must be 18 years of age or older. You must have also received at least one of three prior tests for coronary artery disease: invasive cardiac catheterization, CT angiogram (CTA), or cardiac PET. This study takes place in Atlanta, Georgia.
