Percutaneous mitral valve repair, established indications and results

Summary

With the increasing prevalence of mitral valve disease, how are we currently addressing the treatment of this complex condition?

Join A. Vahanian and R.S. Von Bardeleben as they review where we stand today in noninvasive approaches to the mitral valve. Has the noninvasive approach “come of age” and what are the strategies that we can employ? Among other points, what is the critical role of imaging both in in defining the structural nature of the disease and the subsequent stages of the mitral procedure itself? And while our current percutaneous approaches to the mitral valve appear to follow a similar trajectory as we saw earlier with TAVI, there still seems much to be understood – discover why in this concise overview of a compelling subject…
