Transcatheter treatment of mitral regurgitation

Chairpersons: N. Moat, H. Moellmann

Summary

Consult this session on the transcatheter treatment of mitral regurgitation if you want to learn more about mitral valve anatomy and the implications for percutaneous treatment of mitral regurgitation, understand the importance of echocardiography in device selection and appreciate the advantages and disadvantages of different percutaneous treatment options.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn more about mitral valve anatomy and the implications for percutaneous treatment of mitral regurgitation

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Anatomy of the mitral valve – what interventionists need to know
  • Imaging the mitral valve before and during percutaneous intervention
  • Percutaneous treatment of degenerative mitral regurgitation: clips, chords or valve?
  • Percutaneous treatment of functional mitral regurgitation: clips, rings, valves or pumps?
  • Anatomical complications resulting from percutaneous mitral valve interventions
