Abstract

Isolated congenital Mitral Regurgitation (MR) occurring in infancy is rare (< 0.4% of live
births with congenital heart disease). Presentation in infancy with symptoms of heart
failure reflects the severity of the condition and needs mandatory surgical correction
to prevent progressive deterioration and death. Isolated Congenital MR in infancy is a
surgical challenge and various surgical techniques employed for valve repair have to be
judiciously used. We report a case of isolated congenital MR presenting in infancy, who
underwent successful surgical correction.
