Dr. Moon will explore the various pathoanatomic changes that occur in the mitral and aortic valve apparatus that can lead to regurgitation. Analysis of pathoanatomic alterations will then be used to determine the most efficient mechanistic approach to repair rather than replace regurgitant valves.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of the activity a participant should be able to:

  1. Categorize three types of mitral valve pathology using the Carpentier classification
  2. Differentiate mode of aortic regurgitation caused by changes in the valve leaflets versus changes in the functional aortic annulus
  3. Describe techniques to repair the mitral and aortic valves
