The treatment strategy for ischemic mitral regurgitation (MR) continues to evolve with the completion of multicenter trials and the advancement of surgical and percutaneous interventional techniques. This review defines ischemic MR, outlines key clinical trials that assess surgical and interventional approaches, and reports the main elements of recent national guidelines for decision making in treatment of ischemic MR. New findings in percutaneous mitral valve repair and replacement for ischemic MR will also be described. Effective perioperative care of patients with ischemic MR requires clinicians to be well versed in the most up-to-date recommendations and emerging technological developments.
