We propose a modified single-patch technique consisting in plication of the patch on the left side, which then is sutured with the free edge of the left atrioventricular valve. The proposed technique offers all the advantages of the single-patch technique and at the same time provides additional tissue for reconstructing appropriately the left atrioventricular valve in cases with leaflet tissue deficiency such as severely dysplastic valve, double orifice left atrioventricular valve. This modification augments the left atrioventricular valve tissue appropriately to the orifice size, promotes leftward displacement and improved coaptation with the mural leaflet.

Abstract

We propose a modified single-patch technique consisting in plication of the patch on the left side, which then is sutured with the free edge of the left atrioventricular valve. The proposed technique offers all the advantages of the single-patch technique and at the same time provides additional tissue for reconstructing appropriately the left atrioventricular valve in cases with leaflet tissue deficiency such as severely dysplastic valve, double orifice left atrioventricular valve. This modification augments the left atrioventricular valve tissue appropriately to the orifice size, promotes leftward displacement and improved coaptation with the mural leaflet.
