Reversal of phen-fen associated valvular regurgitation documented by serial echocardiography JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY Vagelos, R., Jacobs, M., Popp, R. L., Liang, D. 2002; 15 (6): 653-657


We report a case of anorexigen-associated moderate to severe aortic and mitral regurgitation in which the regression of lesions was marked and well documented over more than 2 years. The stability of our patient, as well as the degree of regression of regurgitation documented in our patient, and others, suggests it is prudent both to observe such patients and to avoid operation until such observation has been carried out.
