Abstract

Background and aim of the study: A new mitral valve repair concept to treat mitral regurgitation (MR) due to valve prolapse was recently proposed. In this study, an improved design of this concept is presented, and the results of preliminary hemodynamic studies conducted in an in-vitro prolapse model are reported.
