Abstract

Rupture of the atrioventricular (AV) groove is the Achilles’ heel of mitral valve replacement, and it has been associated with high rates of mortality. Here, we report successful management of a type 1 AV groove disruption using a modified Cabrol shunt to the right atrium in a patient with a severely calcified mitral annulus.
