In this experimental study, small intestinal submucosa was implanted as an atrial prosthesis in calves. Echocardiography and histology showed this to be an impermeable prosthesis that develops a neointimal nonthrombogenic surface making it safe for repair of defects in a low-pressure system. Further study with small intestinal submucosa in an intracardiac position is warranted.

    Mitral valve repair for significant mitral regurgitation (MR) is preferred to valve replacement, whenever feasible. Freedom from re-operation is high, reaching 92% at 15 years. However, high-risk patients develop more complications and may be refused surgery. The results from the Endovascular...
