Mitral Valve Reconstructions

  • P. K. Ghosh
Conference paper


Mitral valve (MV) reconstruction represents a spectrum of technical procedures to avoid valve replacement and to restore competent hemodynamic functions. A simple commissurotomy, i.e., separation of fused commissures alone, should not be considered as MV reconstruction, but it constitutes a component in some reconstructive procedures.
