Background. Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is the most common cause of severe mitral regurgitation. Besides echocardiography, up to now there are no reliable biomarkers available for the identification of this pathology. We aim to generate a predictive model, based on circulating biomarkers, able to identify MVP patients with the highest accuracy. Methods. We analysed 43 patients who underwent mitral valve repair due to MVP and compared to 29 matched controls. We assessed the oxidative stress status measuring the oxidized and the reduced form of glutathione by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method...

BACKGROUND: Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is accompanied by mental disorders including anxiety, which has similar presentations as MVP. It is hypothesised that treatment of anxiety might reduce the symptoms of MVP. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the clinical and echocardiographic effects of fluoxetine administration in patients with MVP and anxiety. METHODS: This randomized clinical trial was conducted on patients with documented MVP and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) who were referred to Mashhad University of Medical Sciences cardiology clinics, Mashhad, Iran in 2015...

BACKGROUND: Robotic mitral valve (MV) repair is the least invasive surgical approach to the MV and provides unparalleled access to the valve. We sought to assess technical aspects and clinical outcomes of robotic MV repair for isolated posterior leaflet prolapse by examining the first 623 such cases performed in a tertiary care center. METHODS: We reviewed the first 623 patients (mean age 56±9.7 years) with isolated posterior leaflet prolapse who underwent robotic primary MV repair from 01/2006 to 11/2013...

The adjustable slipknot technique is a novel procedure for implanting neochordae. The neochorda acts like a lasso. The procedure facilitates accurate assessment of the length of the neochordae. We performed repairs for 30 of 31 (97.7%) patients using this technique. Less than mild residual regurgitation was observed in all patients at hospital discharge.

Ischemic mitral prolapse (IMP) is a pathologic entity encountered in about one-third among the patients undergoing surgery for ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR). IMP is generally the result of a papillary muscle injury consequent to myocardial, but the recent literature is progressively unveiling a more complex pathogenesis. The mechanisms underlying its development regards the impairment of one or more components of the mitral apparatus, which comprises the annulus, the chordae tendineae, the papillary muscle and the left ventricular wall...

PURPOSE: Postoperative LV dysfunction is associated with poor prognosis and increased mortality in patient with mitral regurgitation undergoing surgery. With this study, we aimed to investigate the predictive value of classic and speckle tracking echocardiographic (STE) LV deformational parameters for estimating postoperative LV dysfunction. METHODS: Fifty-nine asymptomatic patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) due to mitral valve prolapse, who had sinus rhythm and LV ejection fraction (EF) ≥50%, were included...

INTRODUCTION: Chordal replacement (Chord MVr) for isolated posterior mitral valve prolapse allows for preservation of the native mitral valve apparatus. The potential benefits of this approach, as compared with leaflet resection (Resection), are not clearly defined. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted on operative, clinical, and echocardiographic outcomes. Risk ratios (RR) were calculated by the Mantel-Haenszel method under a fixed or random effects model, as appropriate...

Barlow's disease presents the most severe form of degenerative mitral valve disease as it normally affects various valvular structures and segments. We discuss the technical aspects of mitral valve repair in this setting. Furthermore, the concept of "functional prolapse" of the mitral valve is discussed as well as recommendations on when to proceed with surgical correction of anterior leaflet prolapse.

BACKGROUND: In pediatric patients with connective tissue disorders (CTDs), early cardiac presentation often involves severe mitral regurgitation (MR) associated with severe bileaflet prolapse and, less frequently, aortic root enlargement. We adopted a simplified repair to address MR and prevent systolic anterior motion (SAM) in this unique group of patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of clinical and echocardiographic data of all pediatric patients (age < 18 years) with CTD and MR undergoing simplified repair at 3 institutions (2000-2014)...

Heart failure is one of the most important issues that has been investigated in recent research studies. Variations that occur in apparatus of mitral valve, such as chordae tendineaea rupture, can affect the valve function during ventricular contraction and lead to regurgitation from the left ventricle into the left atrium. One method for understanding mitral valve function in such conditions is computational analysis. In this paper, we develop a finite element model of mitral valve prolapse, considering the direct effect of left ventricular motion on blood flow interacting with the mitral valve...

Marfan syndrome (MFS) is an autosomal dominant condition that is caused by abnormal synthesis of connective tissue. The syndrome classically affects the ocular, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular systems. The most common cardiovascular manifestations include mitral valve prolapse/regurgitation and aortic aneurysms at high risk of rupture and dissection. However, internal mammary artery (IMA) true aneurysms are rarely reported. In this case report, we describe a 43-year-old male patient with MFS and three previous thoracotomies referred for endovascular repair of bilateral IMA true aneurysms...

Letter to the Editor We read with great interest the report by Inoue et al. (Cusp-level chordal shortening for non-rheumatic mitralanterior leaflet prolapse in a patient with persistent atrial fibrillation. J Heart Valve Dis 2015;24:586-589) that described their mitral valve repair technique for anterior leaflet prolapse (ALP) and perioperative adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) therapy for preventing the recurrence of atrial fibrillation after the maze procedure. Latent recurrence of atrial fibrillation after the maze procedure is caused by many factors...

The loop technique is widely used for mitral valve repair. However, estimation of the correct loops' length remains challenging. We describe a standardized technique with implantation of standardized 15- and 25-mm loops for posterior and anterior mitral prolapses. The number of loops and the site of their implantation are decided after a careful surgical valve analysis. This has shown reliable results in our initial experience in eight patients both, in sternotomy and minimally invasive surgery repairs, but needs further long-term evaluation...

BACKGROUND: The repair of anterior mitral leaflet prolapse is known to be challenging. Hence, the study aim was to compare the mid-term results of anterior leaflet prolapse (ALP) using chordal transposition with results obtained using chordal replacement with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) sutures. METHODS: Between 1999 and 2012, a total of 96 consecutive patients (mean age 62 years) with ALP underwent mitral valve repair at the authors' institution. Surgery involved either chordal transposition from the posterior to the anterior leaflet (n = 67), or chordal replacement using ePTFE sutures (n = 29)...
