Mitral valve repair in infants and children.


A number of children are born with myxomatous deformity of the mitral valve, causing mitral regurgitation. Traditional techniques of repair may be daunting in these children because apart from their small size, their valves appear grossly deformed and the tissues are friable. Techniques to circumvent these problems and ensure a predictable and satisfactory outcome are described.
