In the recent year mitral valve treatment underwent a significant evolution. The emerging technology of transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) has deeply influenced the scenario of the surgical management of mitral regurgitation. At the same time, new concepts in mitral disease based on the relation between of the left ventricle, subvalvular apparatus and mitral valve as a functional unit, have been proposed.
Established and more modern surgical techniques have been further developed, with a renovated interest to surgery of the subvalvular apparatus. Progresses have been made in the field of minimally invasive and robotic surgery, opening the way to new paradigms in mitral valve surgery.
In this special issue, the most recent developments and trends in mitral surgery will be discussed. Original articles, reviews, commentaries, case reports and “how-to-do it” contributions will be taken into consideration for this issue. The aim is to provide a realistic and updated status of mitral regurgitation treatment based on the most recent evidence in this field.
