Biodegradable mitral annuloplasty for congenital ischemic mitral regurgitation

Published in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon. 2009, vol. 57, no. 6, p. 363-364
Abstract An anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is associated with ischemic mitral regurgitation through a combination of papillary muscle ischemia or permanent fibrosis, left ventricular free wall ischemic dyskinesis and left ventricular dilatation. We report the successful management of a 27-month-old girl with ALCAPA and severe mitral regurgitation using a biodegradable mitral annuloplasty ring. It could represent a novel tool for mitral valve repair in ALCAPA-associated ischemic mitral regurgitation.
