The V-Chordal System is a new technology for mitral repair. The Valtech V-Chordal system, consists in the ability to adjust (elongate or shorten) the neochordae "off-pump" to achieve an optimal coaptation. The adjustment mechanism allows overcoming the main problem of chordal replacement by enabling accurate sizing of the chords.

|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years to 75 Years
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Age > 18 years
- Degenerative mitral insufficiency with mitral leaflet prolapsed , who are candidates for mitral valve repair according to ESC or ACC/AHA guidelines.
- Patient able and willing to return to the implant center for follow-up visits
- Able and willing to give informed consent and follow protocol procedures.
- Inadequate echocardiographic window for transthoracic imaging
- Severe organic lesions with retraction of chordate tendineae, severly fibrotic and immobile leaflets, severely deformed subvalvular apparatus.
- Evolving endocarditis or active endocarditis in the last 3 months.
- Heavily calcified annulus or leaflets.
- Congenital malformation with limited valvular tissue
- Patient requires mitral valve replacement.
- Previously implanted annuloplasty ring/band.
- Patient requires aortic or pulmonic valve replacement or repair.
- Patient is pregnant (urine HCG test result positive) or lactating.
- Patient has a major cardiac or non-cardiac disease, which in the investigator's experience produces an unacceptable surgical risk.
- Life expectancy of less than twelve months.
- Patient is participating in concomitant research studies of investigational products.
