Mitral Annuloplasty Using A Biodegradable Annuloplasty Ring

Abstract

With the advent of several valve repair techniques, mitral valve repair is now preferred over mitral valve replacement as the treatment of choice for several mitral pathologic conditions. Because annular dilation is a vital component in most cases of chronic mitral regurgitation (MR), annular support is necessary to provide adequate repair and optimum long-term results.1 Annular reinforcement permits shrinking of the dilated annulus, allowing adequate coaptation of the valve leaflets, thereby preventing recurrent dilation.
