After isolated left ventriculoplasty, the mechanism of mitral regurgitation (MR) remains unclear. A 68-year-old male with ischemic cardiomyopathy presented with a new onset of severe MR after left ventriculoplasty without a mitral procedure. He needed a second operation for heart failure because of the MR. We speculate about its mechanism and express caution about the procedure.
