  • In conclusion, we have estimated risks associated with use of fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine for developing FDA-positive AR and MR after correcting for two major sources of bias.

  • These findings lend strong support to the view that fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine are potent causal factors in the development of both aortic and mitral valvular heart disease.

  • Initial reports of remarkably high prevalence of aortic and mitral regurgitation (AR and MR) as assessed by echocardiography in five separate populations [ 2 ] were subsequently supported by most [ 3 4 5 ] but not all investigators [ 6 ] . These uncontrolled reports were soon followed by a series of studies in which prevalence of echocardiographically-defined AR and MR were assessed in persons who had taken fenfluramine, dexfenfluramine, phentermine, or combinations of these medications and compared to unexposed, matched control populations [ 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 ] . The most recent of these studies found 30% of persons currently taking fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine had mild or greater AR or moderate or greater MR, similar to the very high prevalence reported in older studies [ 15 ] . The only prospective study found a significant, exposure-related increase in the risk of clinically diagnosed valve disease among users of fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine, but not phentermine [ 16 ] .

  • Accordingly, our estimates of relative risk associated with fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine use, 19.

  • We first evaluated studies reporting echocardiographic prevalence of FDA-positive valvulopathy (mild or greater AR and moderate or greater MR) [ 2 ] among subjects who had taken either fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine (alone or in combination with phentermine) and in matched controls [ 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 ] . In most of these studies, echocardiograms were performed after the drugs had been discontinued and were read without knowledge of prior drug exposure by multiple readers (table 1).
