Abstract

In 10 patients, a free-wall plication of inferior or lateral scar was performed. The procedure was done on cardiopulmonary bypass and aortic cross-clamping by means of four or five wide U-stitches. Six patients underwent concomitant mitral annuloplasty and one mitral valve replacement. One patient died postoperatively. There was a sudden and significative end-systolic volume reduction with a rise in ejection fraction. These hemodynamic benefits were partially lost during the follow-up but the mitral regurgitation grade remained unchanged.
