Is Increased Mitral Valve Gradient After MitraClip a Long-Term Prognostic Factor?

Is Increased Mitral Valve Gradient After MitraClip a Long-Term Prognostic Factor?

Transcatheter mitral valve repair using the edge-to-edge strategy has become a therapeutic alternative for patients with severe primary mitral valve regurgitation (MVG) who are at high or extreme surgical risk. However, both degree of residual regurgitation and gradient after the procedure should be taken into account, as in previous studies the latter was associated with

Soon, our website will feature an interesting study showing that sites with a higher number of conventional surgical aortic valve replacements had better outcomes in transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures. The study featured in this article was scheduled for presentation at the American College of Cardiology 2020 Scientific Session along the World Congress of Cardiology.
