Abstract

NeoChord repair is a safe procedure, and the results are maintained through the 1-year follow-up. A relative high number of implants were required to overcome the learning curve at our institution due to the concurrent development of patient selection criteria and the technical refinement of the procedure. Future studies are needed to assess the evolution of the learning curve after the wide adoption of the procedure across European and North American centres.
