Percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (MitraClip) in heart failure: potentials and limitations

Summary

Watch this session video from EuroPCR 2015 on percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (MitraClip) in heart failure: potentials and limitations.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the relevance of functional mitral regurgitation in progression of heart failure
  • To review the available evidence of treating functional mitral regurgitation with percutaneous edge-to-edge repair in heart failure patients
  • To learn about patient-tailored peri-procedural planning and challenges related to percutaneous edge-to-edge repair

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session objectives
  • Heart failure patient with functional mitral regurgitation: prognosis and therapeutic options
  • Percutaneous MitraClip interventions in heart failure: selection and pre-procedural planning
  • The role of MitraClip in the scope of heart failure management including cardiac resynchronisation therapy, assist devices and heart transplantation
