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

Mitral Valve Global Registry: transcatheter mitral valve replacement due to native valve disease

Courtesy of the SBHCI. The risk of surgical mitral valve replacement in patients with significant annular calcification is very high. There are isolated reports of transcatheter mitral valve replacement with balloon-expandable valve in this patient population. In consequence, this multicenter registry tries to concentrate information and analyzes the outcomes a year after the procedure.

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement for Severe Mitral Regurgitation: A Global Study

Symptomatic mitral regurgitation is associated with high morbidity and mortality that can be alleviated partly by surgical mitral valve replacement. However, many patients do not undergo surgery. Transcatheter mitral valve replacement is an appealing option for this selected patient group.   This study aimed to examine the effectiveness and safety of transcatheter mitral valve replacement

Mitral Annuloplasty with a Cardioband Device: Effective in Functional Mitral Regurgitation

Both surgical and medical treatment options for functional mitral regurgitation are limited. The Cardioband system (Valtech Cardio, OrYehuda, Israel) is a new transvenous, transseptal direct mitral annuloplasty device. This work studied the safety and efficacy of this new device 6 months after implantation.   Thirty-one patients with moderate to severe mitral regurgitation associated with severe impairment of the left systolic ventricular
