Abstract

Utilization of the Melody valve for mitral valve replacement has been previously reported; however, left ventricular outflow tract obstruction is a frequent concern. In this report, a technique for supra-annular placement of the Melody valve in the mitral position is described which will minimize the risk of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction.
