Abstract

In this report, we describe a new procedure to repair the prolapsing high mid-scallop of the mitral valve (MV) posterior leaflet (P2) with detailed consideration of the anatomy and physiology of the MV. A new artificial chord is implanted in the body of the P2 at the same height of non-prolapsing P1 and P3, and the remaining part of the prolapsing P2 is anchored to the artificial chord taking the shape of a tent.
