Intraoperative saline injection leak test--a simple method to assess mitral valve repair when a simultaneous aortotomy does not allow pressurization of the left ventricle

, : Intraoperative saline injection leak test--a simple method to assess mitral valve repair when a simultaneous aortotomy does not allow pressurization of the left ventricle. Interactive Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery 6(5): 580-581

We describe a simple, safe and reliable intraoperative saline injection leak test for accomplishing and testing the efficacy of mitral valve repair when a simultaneous aortotomy is present.
