Abstract

Impact of Severe Mitral Stenosis on Visual Acuity, Intraocular Pressure, and Retinal Arteries

We sought to determine the impact of severe mitral stenosis (MS) on visual acuity and intraocular pressure, and also we searched for silent retinal artery emboli.

Keywords: Rheumatic mitral stenosis; Embolism; Retinal artery
