BACKGROUND Centers have expanded indications for robotic mitral valve repairs to include complex pathologic features. We studied our results after robotic mitral valve repair for anterior leaflet or bileaflet prolapse. METHODS Data were collected contemporaneously on 289 patients operated on from May 2000 to September 2006. Every patient underwent preoperative transesophageal echocardiography. Follow-up consisted of serial echocardiograms, clinic visits, and phone conversations with patients… CONTINUE READING
