Since 2008, 28 patients with congenital mitral regurgitation have undergone mitral valve repair with a modified edge-to-edge technique at our institution. The regurgitant mitral leaflet was sutured with a pledget-reinforced, horizontal mattress suture with No. 4-0 polypropylene on the ventricle side and a pledget-reinforced mattress suture with Gore-Tex sutures (W.L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, AZ) and Dacron pledgets (Chest, Shanghai) placed on the anterior and posterior annulus corresponding to the edge-to-edge suturing site. Early results are encouraging, but a longer follow-up is needed.
