This single institution retrospective review assessed outcomes of minimally invasive mitral valve repair (via R minithoracotomy) in 101 consecutive patients. Repair was accomplished by implantation of neochord loops and ring annuloplasty. One-year survival was 100%. Freedom from moderate or worse MR was 100% at three years.
