Abstract

Sliding annuloplasty has been used for mitral valve repair in conjunction with posterior leaflet quadrangular resection to avoid systolic anterior motion of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve. Herein, we report on a case of successful mitral valve repair with using the annular plication technique to facilitate sliding annuloplasty and extensive quadrangular resection was also done for treating a Marfan's syndrome patient who had an extremely redundant leaflet and a severely dilated annulus.
