Transaortic Aortomitral Junction Reconstruction and Mitral Valve Leaflet Repair for Recurrent Endocarditis JOURNAL OF HEART VALVE DISEASE Chiu, P., Allen, J. G., Woo, Y. J. 2015; 24 (2): 173-176


Transaortic interventions on the mitral valve are rarely performed, but offer advantages over traditional approaches in certain circumstances, including either extensive involvement of the aortomitral junction with endocarditis or the patient requiring reoperation for aortic and mitral disease. Herein is presented a case of recurrent endocarditis involving aortomitral continuity, reconstructed using a transaortic mitral valve repair and reconstruction of the aortic and mitral annuli with a pericardial patch, followed by aortic root replacement.
