Abstract

Congenital mitral valve malformations are diverse. When they present clinically in infancy medical treatment is often ineffective. Mitral valve replacement with prostheses in children carries high operative and postoperative risk. For these reasons the authors have undertaken a cooperative study which includes: 1) a surgical classification of the congenital mitral valve lesions; 2) a systematic attempt to repair the mitral valve. Of 43 observed cases, 18 have been operated upon. Eleven cases (61%) presented associated cardiac lesions. Hospital mortality was 16% (3 cases). There have been neither mortality nor morbidity in the follow-up period. Eight cases have been recatheterized two years after the operation. The pulmonary artery pressure significantly decreased and the mitral insufficiency disappeared almost completely. The classification, suggested by the authors, is explained in details.
