Several techniques are currently in use for mitral valve reconstruction. We report a mitral repair case in which the use of a combination of different surgical techniques resulted in the necessary correction. A 47-year-old woman underwent surgical intervention to treat severe mitral valve insufficiency due to A1/A2/A3 and P2 prolapsed valve tissue. A combination of quadrangular resection, sliding leaflet, single chordal transposition, "flip-over" leaflet, and ring annuloplasty techniques were applied, and postsurgical correct valve function was documented by results of a left ventricular saline filling test and transesophageal echocardiography control. Complex mitral valve repairing techniques can be combined to reestablish valvular function.
