Outcome for Conservative Surgery for the Correction of Severe Mitral Valve Regurgitation in Children: A Single-Center Experience

The study suggests that the use of conservative technique strategy achieves satisfactory functional results in infants and children with severe MR, although the rate of reoperation in younger patients remains substantial.

Early and Mid-Term Outcome of Pediatric Congenital Mitral Valve Surgery

Surgical repair of the congenital MV disease yields acceptable early and intermediate- term satisfactory valve function and good survival at intermediate-term follow-up and strong predictors for poor surgical outcome and death were age smaller than 1 year, weight smaller or equal to 6 kg, and associated cardiac anomalies such as pulmonary stenosis.

Surgical Atrioventricular Valve Replacement With Melody Valve in Infants and Children: A Multicenter Study

The Melody valve is a feasible option for surgical atrioventricular valve replacement in patients with hypoplastic annuli and shows acceptable short-term function and is amenable to catheter-based enlargement as the child grows, however, patients remain at risk for mortality and structural valve deterioration.

Congenital mitral valve defects in pediatric population: a narrative review of surgical repair

The mitral valve (MV) is a complex morphologic and functional apparatus constituted by the annulus, leaflet valves, tendinea chords, papillary muscles, and left ventricular wall (1). Defects affected

Atrioventricular valves dysplasia in a newborn

An early surgical repair of both atrioventricular valves in a symptomatic newborn is reported, which improved his clinical status and, so far, delayed valve replacement.

Outcomes of biventricular repair for shone's complex

The outcomes after Shone's complex repair, the growth of mitral and aortic valve and LVOT, and long‐term survival are reported.

Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connections and Congenital Defects of the Atria, the Atrioventricular Septum, and the Atrioventricular Valves

In this chapter anatomy, diagnostic features, and surgical approaches for congenital anomalies of atrial septum, atrioventricular valves, and pulmonary veins are described.

The Role of Novel Transcatheter Procedures in Patients With Congenital Heart Disease.

The pathophysiology of valvular abnormalities specific to congenital heart disease is described and the application of structural procedures in this population is discussed.

Mitral valve replacement in patients younger than 6 years of age can be performed relatively safely, but meticulous follow-up and appropriate decision making for re-replacement is mandatory for the long-term survival of these patients.

Mitral valve replacement in infants and children.

It is suggested that mitral valve replacement, when indicated by refractory congestive heart failure and growth retardation, can be successfully performed even in infants and small children, and should not be postponed to allow for subsequent patient growth.

Surgery for congenital abnormalities of the mitral valve at the Hospital for Sick Children, London from 1969-1983.

The severity of the anomalies was greater in Group B and a rethink as to whether valve replacement is the best option for severe mitral stenosis in those aged less than 5 years seems indicated, in view of the very high mortality.
