Percutaneous repair by MitraClip is a transcatheter technology based on the surgical Alfieri edge-to-edge repair, which involves suturing together the middle segments of the anterior and posterior mitral valve leaflets, thereby creating a "double orifice" mitral regurgitant area.5 The MitraClip system utilizes a cobalt chromium clip covered with a polypropylene fabric that grasps the leaflet and reduces mitral regurgitation (MR) by increasing the coaptation between the regurgitant valve leaflets.
The short fragments were a result of osteolysis that occurred during a month of external coaptation (splinting).
Concepts in neural coaptation: using the facial nerve as a paradigm in understanding principles surrounding nerve injury and repair.
The posterior commissure is the anatomical structure initiating coaptation; thus, if ignored, it can lead to recurrent/residual MR.
None of them allows a conservative treatment with external coaptation, due to the anatomical peculiarities of the femur and surrounding soft tissues (BEALE, 2004; DeCAMP et al., 2016).
Two mL of Polyacrylamide hydrogel was injected under neurolept sedation in all women using a specialised sheath and rigid pediatric cystoscopy into 3 to 4 sites in the proximal urethra as previously described; we utilised the standard technique of periurethral injection with the goal of creating "mounds" that increased the coaptation of the urethra (8).
Gentle pressure was applied to the midperineum dorsal to the level of the membranous urethra during urethroscopy to evaluate the mobility and coaptation of the sphincteric mechanism.
These sort of patient does not improve with conservative treatment and they require exploration of the nerve and microvascular coaptation of the cut ends either through end-to-end anastomosis or sural nerve graft.
The HARPOON system is designed to facilitate echo-guided repair of mitral valve regurgitation by stabilizing the prolapsed mitral valve leaflet to restore proper coaptation and valve function.

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was ordered, and it showed prolapsed mitral valve involving the posterior leaflet (P2 segment) with an echogenic structure adhered to the atrial face, with approximate dimensions of 0.47 x 0.85 cm, compatible with endocardial vegetation, determining failure of coaptation and a moderate degree of valvular insufficiency and eccentric jet.
She was placed in a well-padded long arm posterior plaster splint extending from the posterior shoulder to the fingers, with an additional coaptation component to the splint to stabilize the humerus fracture.
