Mitral valve repair for ischaemic mitral incompetence has a 10% rate of failure at ten year follow-up. Progressive annular dilation could play an important role. We have implanted the enCorSQ TM mitral valve repair system. This system can be downsized during follow-up with the appropriate activation via the lead passed through the left atrium suture line, in order to restore mitral leaflet coaptation.
