The Alfieri procedure or “bow-tie” repair is a simple repair method introduced by Alfieri and coll.1 in which the leading edges of the mitral leaflets are approximated by use of a suture. The location of the suture can be customized on the basis of the location of the regurgitant jet with both central and paracommissural leaflet approximation.
