Abstract

Background and aim of the study: Heart rate turbulence (HRT) is a relatively newer parameter which has predictive value for mortality and severity in a variety of cardiovascular diseases. The study aim was to investigate the relationship between HRT and isolated acquired mitral stenosis (MS) on the basis of symptoms considered important in prognosis and for determining mechanical relief of the stenotic valve.
