PurposeGiven the multitude of challenges surgeons face during mitral valve repair surgery, they should have a high confidence in handling of instruments and in the application of surgical techniques before they enter the operating room. Unfortunately, opportunities for surgical training of minimally invasive repair are very limited, leading to a situation where most surgeons undergo a steep learning curve while operating the first patients.MethodsIn order to provide a realistic tool for… Expand
Patient-Specific Subvalvular Apparatuses Consisting of Chordae Tendineae and Papillary Muscles to Complete Mitral Valve Replicas
