PMID:  23176939     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
We describe a simple technique for implantation of neochordae in degenerative mitral regurgitation with elongated or ruptured chords. We have successfully performed 102 mitral valve repairs using this technique and achieved mitral valve competency with no more than trace regurgitation. The technique is easy to perform and reproducible.
