Abstract

Systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral apparatus and consequent obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract is a known complication of mitral valve repair (MVREP). The edge-to-edge technique has been advocated for the repair of myxomatous mitral valves to avoid SAM. We present a new technique to prevent SAM in patients with a redundant lateral segment of the anterior leaflet by folding its elongated portion underneath the body of the anterior leaflet.
