Mitral valve replacement may be indicated in delayed MitraClip (Abbott) failure. Although it would be best to preserve the chordal apparatus during surgical mitral valve replace-ment, this has not been reported for delayed MitraClip failure, probably because there is almost always impressive inflammation around the MitraClip, which has likely precluded previous attempts at chordal preservation. A successful surgical chordal preservation mitral valve replacement in delayed MitraClip failure is reported here. (Tex Heart Inst J. 2022;49(6):e217599).
