PMID:  3713238     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Limited experimental and clinical experience with extracardiac bypass of the mitral valve has been reported. We describe the case history of a 3-year-old child in whom a left atrial-left ventricular valved conduit was successfully used to bypass a severely hypoplastic parachute mitral valve. The potential applications of this unconventional surgical option are reviewed.
