Ring annuloplasty is the most common strategy for correction of ischemic mitral regurgitation. When a commercial prosthesis is unavailable or too expensive, an autogenous annuloplasty ring can be handmade by the surgeon. The aim of this study was to compare short-term results of mitral valve repair with autologous annuloplasty rings and the SJM Tailor flexible prosthesis. Between March 2004 and April 2006, 100 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting and mitral ring annuloplasty for ischemic regurgitation were randomly assigned to either type of prosthesis. Transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography showed no significant differences between these techniques in terms of immediate success of the repair and its durability at 3, 6, and 9 months postoperatively. Autogenous rings are easy to make, cost-effective, and always available. Our short-term results suggest that they may be an acceptable alternative to a commercially produced prosthesis for patients with ischemic mitral regurgitation.
