Abstract

The main reason for common atrioventricular valve regurgitation is the enlargement of the valve annulus contralaterally to the aorta and pulmonary artery. Edge-to-edge repair can be used to address the regurgitation; however, there might be potential disadvantage that a fixed bridging leaflet could have a restrictive motion, leading to recurrence of atrioventricular valve regurgitation. To avoid this issue and address the anteroposterior dilatation of the annulus, we have developed an adjustable annular bridging technique.
