David et al. examined the durability of mitral repair using using chordal replacement with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene sutures to correct leaflet prolapse.They evaluated 186 patients who underwent isolated chordal replacement, and 560 patients who underwent both leaflet resection and choral replacement.

This JANS Note is an editorial in response to a recent publication by Deharo et al comparing TAVR valve-in-valve versus redo-SAVR demonstrating improved short-term outcomes with TAVR ViV.  The detail limitations of this study and provide a persuasive argument for the need of a randomized trial comparing both modalities.
