The Ross procedure is a valuable alternative for the surgical treatment of aortic valve disease in adolescent and young adult. However, neo-aortic root dilatation resulting in valve regurgitation is not uncommon. This video demonstrates the authors' technical modification that prevents this complication.

Ever controversial, Dr Randas Batista is best known for the operation that bears his name, otherwise known as a reduction ventriculoplasty, that caused a huge amount of interest in the USA and Europe 10 years ago as an alternative to transplantation for heart failure. A maverick to some, but a resourceful innovator working in a developing country to others.

Demonstrated in the video is a novel concept for facilitating extensive neochordal repair in mitral regurgitation based on the paradigm “respect rather than resect”. Both leaflet tissue and motion are respected. The leaflet is folded and the neochordae is tied, maintaining free margin and annulus edge-to-edge.
