About this Calculator

The Wilkins Echo score can predict the procedural success for mitral valvuloplasty based on valve structure. A score of ≤ 8 predicts a more favorable procedural, short, intermediate and long-term outcome (including survival). Other important predictors of procedural success and long-term outcome include commissural calcification or fusion, pre-procedure mitral regurgitation >2+, post-procedure mitral regurgitation >3+, Age, Prior surgical commissurotomy, NYHA functional class IV, and higher post-procedure pulmonary artery pressure.
