Abstract  Chordal transfer from the intact posterior mitral leaflet (PML) to the anterior mitral leaflet (AML) is an effective way to correct anterior leaflet prolapse and provides good long-term results. However, it is difficult to determine the accurate segment of the PML which needs to be transferred and the suture point of the leaflets. We describe a modified technique to determine the correct segment that needs to be transferred to effectively correct AMLs with elongated or ruptured chordae. This technique renders performing chordal transfer easier and more accurate.
