Abstract

We report a case of severe Barlow's disease with a very complex pathology, in which we applied the "edge-to-edge" technique, creating a triple-orifice mitral valve. Different techniques should be used to correct a similar valve defect; the combination of different surgical procedures and the valve pathology may influence the post-repair recurrence of regurgitation. We believe that it is better to perform a simple and reproducible repair than to carry on with combined complex procedures that could increase the risk of a suboptimal outcome.
