Abstract
We describe In this report, a new and simple technique to prevent SAM after mitral valve repairs, hence two artificial chords are implanted in the edge of anterior leaflet at five and seven o’clock positions, subsequently these are paradoxically anchored to the posterior annulus avoiding the mitral-septal contact or reducing this contact at the level of the tip of anterior leaflet particularly with notable bulging of the ventricular septum into the out- flow tract
