31P MRS can noninvasively reflect the in vivo energy metabolism without using ionizing radiation. It has been widely applied in the clinical studies of cardiac energetics under different pathophysiological conditions. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the myocardial energetics in 30 patients with moderate or severe degenerative mitral regurgitation (DMR) using 31P MRS.
