Authors' results and conclusions: The chargeable costs of surgeries were 27,020 and 34,297 for repair and replacement, respectively. Life expectancy for repair was 14.486 years, and 11.766 years for replacement. The cost-effectiveness análisis showed that replacement surgery is dominated by repair.
Authors' recomendations: The cost-effectiveness analysis conducted of surgeries to treat mitral valve insufficiency showed that repair surgery was the dominant alternative, since it costs less and is more effective than replacement.
