Figure 6: This fi gure shows three-dimensional printed mitral annuli of the same patient with ischemic mitral regurgitation before and after repair with a Medtronic Profi le three-dimensional annuloplasty device (Medtronic Minneapolis MN USA). In the pre-repair three-dimensional printed model, the mitral annulus is dilated in the AP axis and fl attened. After repair there is a signifi cant reduction in the mitral annular size and increased non-planarity, which can be visually appreciated as significant augmentation of the saddle-shaped
