Our series demonstrates that, with a systematic approach emphasizing valve re-repair as a primary strategy, valve preservation is possible in most of the patients with a failed mitral valve repair. Patient survival with re-repair was very good, and re-repairs remained durable to the mid-term. Additionally, our analysis of modes of failure after mitral valve repairs provides clues on how the durability of mitral valve repair may be improved.
