We present a case to demonstrate the feasibility of transapical beating heart mitral valve repair in a patient with dextrocardia. This minimally invasive technique provides simple, safe and satisfactory mitral repair. The surgical technique, outcome and prognosis are not affected by the condition.

Old and polymorbid patients with multivalvular heart disease comprise a special patient group, with high perioperative morbidity and mortality. We report the case of an 80-year-old, female, polymorbid...
Interventional therapy of failing surgical mitral valve replacement and repair is an appealing option in patients who are not eligible for redo surgery. We herein report on the first-in-human use of a...
Mitral regurgitation (MR) is the most prevalent form of moderate or severe valve disease in the developed world. MR can result from impairment of any part of the mitral valve apparatus and is classifi...
The MitraClip (MC) procedure was designed for high-risk surgical patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR). Some patients do not meet the required anatomical criteria due to advanced left ventric...
The aim of the article is to discuss different therapeutic options for patients with severe mitral valve dysfunction because of mitral annular calcification (MAC), including mitral valve repair, conve...
Minimally invasive transapical off-pump chordae implantation includes features such as tachycardia, arrhythmia, hemorrhage, sudden hemodynamic changes caused by the device moving in the le...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and initial performance of the Neovasc Tiara Mitral Transcatheter Heart Valve with the Tiara Transapical Delivery System.
The purpose of the study is to generate early US feasibility data of the CardiAQ™ Transcatheter Mitral Valve Implant System. The study will enroll patients with moderate to severe mitra...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the initial short and long-term safety and performance of the CardiAQ™ Transcatheter Mitral Valve Implantation System using the Transapical Delive...
To evaluate the safety and performance of the Neovasc Tiara Mitral Transcatheter Heart Valve with the Tiara Transapical Delivery System.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
The valve between the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart.
