Mitral regurgitation: what the interventionist needs to know

Chairpersons: A. Vahanian, G. Yucel
React@PCR moderator: I. Atmowihardjo

Learning Objectives

  • To understand normal mitral valve anatomy, physiology & the pathophysiology of mitral regurgitation
  • To appreciate the value of Imaging tools in assessing mitral valve pathology & planning interventional treatment
  • To identify the challenges of percutaneous treatment & possible solutions

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Mitral valve anatomy & physiology: much more complex than the aortic valve
  • Primary & secondary mitral valve regurgitation: different problems in different patients
  • The key role of Imaging in diagnosis & procedural planning
  • Top 3 anatomical challenges for percutaneous mitral valve intervention (& how to overcome them)
