BACKGROUND Resectional techniques are the established method of posterior mitral valve leaflet repair for degenerative disease; however, use of neochordae in a robotically assisted approach is gaining acceptance because of its versatility for difficult multisegment disease. The purposes of this study were to compare the versatility, safety, and… CONTINUE READING
