The purpose of this study is to try and determine whether repair of moderate ischemic mitral regurgitation at the time of coronary bypass graft surgery (CABG) has an impact on survival.We will compare patients undergoing CABG + mitral repair or CABG only groups. Primary endpoints include late survival. Secondary endpoints include event free survival, symptoms, and echocardiographic outcomes.
