Continuous Beta-Blocker Therapy Delays Structural Deterioration after Bioprosthetic Mitral Valve Replacement - PubMed
The impact of continuous beta-blocker (BB) therapy on structural valve deterioration (SVD) after bioprosthetic mitral replacement was investigated. From 2000 to 2005, 138 such patients were propensity score matched in a 1:1 fashion (continuous BB therapy after surgery, <i>n</i> = 69; without BB...
Just read this study from 2019, which shows that continuously taking beta blockers helps prevent structural valve deterioration, vs not taking them, for those with bioprosthetic mitral valves. Has anyone seen any similar studies for bioprosthetic aortic valve replacements, TAVRs, etc?
I always suspected this might be the case, nice to show some evidence for it. Personally, I take Bystolic/Nebivolol, which has been really great.
