Purpose: To provide a training course focused on mitral valve repair featuring Chord-X® Mitral Chordal Replacement Products. The didactic portion will cover the clinical overview of outcomes, patient selection and an overview of the implant procedure. Training courses will also include a case observation, where attending surgeons will have the opportunity to observe an experienced surgeon perform a mitral valve repair with chordal replacement, as well as a mentored wet lab to provide hands-on training of the Chord-X Pre-Measured Loops and the Chord-X Chordal Sizer.
