BACKGROUND: Management of severe ischemic mitral regurgitation remains difficult with disappointing early and intermediate-term surgical results of valve repair. METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty-four patients with severe (4+) Carpentier type IIIb ischemic mitral regurgitation underwent mitral valve repair, with or without surgical revascularization, by posterior leaflet extension with a patch of bovine pericardium and a remodeling annuloplasty. Serial echocardiography was performed preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively to assess mitral valve competence. The postoperative functional status of patients was assessed. The average Parsonnet score was 38+/-13. Thirty-day mortality was 11%, and late mortality was 14%. Mean follow-up was 38 months. The actuarial freedom from moderate or severe recurrent mitral regurgitation was 90% at 2 years, whereas 90% of patients were in New York Heart Association class I at 2 years. CONCLUSIONS: Posterior leaflet extension with annuloplasty of the mitral valve for severe type IIIb ischemic regurgitation is a safe, effective method that provides good early and intermediate-term competence of the mitral valve and therefore good functional status.
