Abstract

Between January 1986 and November 1987, 31 patients (pt.) underwent reconstructive surgery for mitral regurgitation secondary to floppy valve. Six pt. were in NYHA functional class IV, 22 in III class and 3 in II class. The mitral valve prolapse was posterior in 20 cases, anterior in 7 cases and bilateral in 4 cases. Chordal rupture was present in 18 pt. The mitral valve was repaired by quadrangular excision of the mural leaflet and posterior annuloplasty performed by insertion of polytetrafluoroethylene graft. The anterior prolapse was managed by transposition of chordae from the mural leaflet to the prolapsed part of the anterior leaflet (11 cases). One patient died perioperatively from myocardial infarction. Subsequent follow-up (length: 12.1 +/- 4.9 months) revealed good functional and clinical results: all pt. were alive, in NYHA class I or II (3 pt.). Echocardiographic studies revealed a decrease in diastolic (3.68 +/- 0.6 vs. 3.17 +/- 0.3 cm/m2) and systolic (2.4 +/- 0.5 vs. 2.15 +/- 0.4 cm/m2) diameter. The shortening fraction did not decline significantly. The mitral area fell from 6.0 +/- 2.0 cm2 to 3.1 +/- 1.1 cm2. A moderate residual regurgitation was present in two pt. and a severe regurgitation was found in only one pt. Our experience suggests that valve repair may be considered the most suitable type of operation for mitral regurgitation secondary to floppy valve.
