PMID:  9930518     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The technique for replacement of the mitral valve with a mitral valve homograft is described. Principles include side-by-side approximation of the papillary muscles using multiple stitches of fine monofilament suture, direct attachment of the annulus of the mitral homograft to the annulus of the patient, and support of the repair by remodeling annuloplasty ring.
