Abstract

Mitral valve repair is a feasible and preferable option for the treatment of Barlow's disease. Complex valve repair techniques, in contrast, often lead to increased cross-clamp times and low cardiac output syndrome. A simple, fast, and reproducible foldoplasty technique to reduce anterior and posterior mitral leaflet heights may improve coaptation and reduce mitral regurgitation. Accordingly, herein are described minimally invasive, successful trans-septal and robotic approaches for a bileaflet foldoplasty technique in two patients with Barlow's disease.
