Mitral Valve Repair in Patients with Cardiac Failure

Mitral Valve Repair in Patients with Cardiac Failure

The mitral valve is a complex apparatus dependent on left atrium and left ventricle functionality. Dilation of these cavities might affect mitral annulus morphology and lead to valve dysfunction, generating mitral regurgitation (MR). This type of MR has been called functional, since leaflets and tendinous chordae do not present lesions themselves; instead, they malfunction ‘secondary’

MITRA-FR: Percutaneous Repair or Medical Treatment for Secondary Mitral Regurgitation

Courtesy of Dr. Adolfo Ferrero. INTRODUCCION: In patients with chronic heart failure and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction, severe secondary mitral valve regurgitation is associated with bad prognosis. Whether percutaneous mitral valve repair improves clinical results in this patient population, remains unclear, despite prior multicenter studies supporting this view. METHODS: Patients with severe secondary mitral

ESC 2018 | MITRA FR: Testing MitraClip for Secondary Mitral Regurgitation

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. In secondary mitral regurgitation, mitral-valve leaflets and chordae are structurally normal and mitral regurgitation results from alterations in left ventricular geometry and function.  At present, prognosis is based on ventricular function and the regular course of action is optimal medical treatment. Even though some studies have shown edge-to-edge percutaneous repair

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement Devices Multiply

The Transcatheter mitral valve replacement has been established as gold standard for patients with intermediate or high risk severe aortic stenosis. The supporting evidence was initially gathered with one or two safe and effective devices that worked really well, so that later on prosthetic valves multiplied, for competing companies wanted their share of the market. However,

Mitral Valve Repair with MitraClip Is Safe in High-Risk Patients

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Transcatheter mitral valve repair with MitraClip has shown good results in symptomatic patients with extreme surgical risk in different studies. However, its “real world” benefits have not been studied in depth due to how complex this strategy is compared with other usual procedures. This study analyzed 2952 patients who underwent mitral

MitraClip: ¿debemos intervenir antes a nuestros pacientes?

MitraClip: Should We Intervene Earlier?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Repairing the mitral valve with Mitraclip has become an alternative for high risk or inoperable symptomatic patients, but its long term evolution has only been tested by the EVEREST II, which had not taken into account 5 year mortality outcomes. Therefore, to better study its evolution, we need to carry out different randomized studies
