EuroPCR 2020 | CLASP: New Device for Mitral Repair with at One Year Follow Up

The CLASP looked into patients treated with the new device for transcatheter mitral repair called PASCAL and showed low complications rate, high survival rate, significant mitral regurgitation reduction and improved quality of life at one year.  In July 2019 we published on our web page the 30 year outcomes of the PASCAL device () which

Treating Both Atrial Valves Improves Survival

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. There a few treatment options for tricuspid valve disease. It is practically limited to diuretics and surgery, is associated to high mortality and, generally, mitral regurgitation.  Developing the “edge-to-edge” strategy with MitraClip has been shown beneficial and, at present, there are studies that claim this technique could be greatly beneficial

Can We Treat Severe Residual Mitral Regurgitation after MitraClip without Surgery?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Edge to edge with MitraClip was shown effective and safe, and its outcomes have been improving over these past few years. However, one of its greatest challenges involves not being able to reduce mitral regurgitation (MR) after device implantation, resulting in the need for surgery, as some studies have shown

Mitral Valve Repair with MirtaClip Was Feasible and Safe

Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) with MitraClip was shown feasible and safe, and therefore a viable option for symptomatic patients with severe mitral valve regurgitation of prohibitive risk. In this regard, the procedure alleviates symptoms, cardiac regurgitation and has a potential benefit on ventricular remodeling. However, many patients presented atrial fibrillation (AF) and mitral valve

Es posible realizar MitraClip sin anestesia general

MitraClip Procedure Can Be Performed without General Anesthesia

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Avoiding general anesthesia in intervention procedures has the benefits of faster recovery and shorter hospitalization. This has been already analyzed in the context of TAVR, but not in MitraClip procedures. The present study analyzed 232 patients receiving the MitraClip. 76 of these procedures were done under general anesthesia (32.7%) and

Percutaneous Device Closure of PVL: An Alternative to Surgery

Paravalvular Leak (PVL) occurs in 5 to 17% of patients undergoing surgical valve replacement. Percutaneous device closure of PVL represents an alternative to repeat surgery.   All centers in UK and Ireland performing percutaneous PVL closure delivered their data to the UK PVL registry. Data were analyzed for factors associated with mortality and major cardiovascular
