Abstract

Bench repair of the donor mitral valve was performed before orthotopic heart transplantation in a 57-year-old status I recipient. Mitral regurgitation in the structurally normal mitral valve was due to annular dilatation at the attachment of the posterior leaflet and was corrected with posterior annuloplasty. The patient is clinically well 18 months after transplantation.
