The Alfieri stitch procedure, also known as Alfieri stitch valvuloplasty, the Bow-Tie procedure, and edge-to-edge or E-to-E mitral valve repair, is a surgical treatment for severe congenital mitral regurgitation. It involves placing a stitch between two segments of the mitral valve to restrict the flow of blood and reduce the degree of mitral regurgitation. The procedure can be performed via a sternotomy or thoracoscopy.
Alfieri stitch is frequently performed concurrently with annuloplasty, which is coded separately.
In a patient with severe congenital mitral valve regurgitation, a suture was placed to create an Alfieri stitch bringing together the center A2 segment of the anterior leaflet and the center P2 segment of the posterior leaflet. To reduce mitral leakage further, a partial mitral annuloplasty using bovine tissue strips to reinforce the annulus was also performed. The procedure was done via an open approach.
