Abstract

Two technical maneuvers in septum primum defect repair have resulted in improved mitral valve function and security against heart block. One maneuver, critical to restoring mitral competence, is accurate reconstruction of the leading edge of the mitral valve. A second maneuver, suturing the septal defect patch at its inferior aspect to the mitral valve near the annulus instead of to the inferior septal defect margin or to the tricuspid annulus, eliminates the hazard of atrioventricular node or bundle injury.
