Mitral valve repair using trans-apical off-pump beating-heart neochordae implantation is a relatively new procedure with promising early and mid-term results in selected patients. However early failures few days after the procedure, requiring surgical reintervention, have been described. We describe a case of intraoperative acute procedural failure treated with a second procedure through a different trans-apical access adjacent to the first one. The final result was excellent with trivial residual regurgitation and the subsequent hospitalization was uneventful. This case demonstrates that a second trans-apical mitral neochordae implantation is feasible and should be considered in case of intraoperative acute procedural failure.

Abstract

Mitral valve repair using trans-apical off-pump beating-heart neochordae implantation is a relatively new procedure with promising early and mid-term results in selected patients. However early failures few days after the procedure, requiring surgical reintervention, have been described. We describe a case of intraoperative acute procedural failure treated with a second procedure through a different trans-apical access adjacent to the first one. The final result was excellent with trivial residual regurgitation and the subsequent hospitalization was uneventful. This case demonstrates that a second trans-apical mitral neochordae implantation is feasible and should be considered in case of intraoperative acute procedural failure.
