Abstract: A technique to intraoperatively assess mitral valve function after reconstruction is described. Cold cardioplegic solution is infused into the left ventricle at low intraventricular pressure (less than 15 mm-Hg) via the cardioplegia infusion line. The infusion of a crystalloid solution, instead of blood, clearly demonstrates residual leaks. Additional pump lines are not required and hypothermic cardioplegic arrest is maintained, thus allowing for repeated testing and additional repair. In combined aortic and m… Show more
