Mitral valve replacement and repair

Find all the latest content on mitral valve replacement and repair published on this website.

Building on the years of experience with TAVI, mitral valve replacement and repair is now beginning to take-off with a vast array of new techniques and options. Certain devices, for instance in mitral repair, are now widely used. To understand this complex field a knowledge and mastery is required covering the latest research, emerging tools, devices and techniques, vascular access; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; imaging techniques such as echocardiography as well as understanding bleeding risks or patient selection.

How should I treat a recurrent hemolysis after transcatheter closure of mitral paravalvular leak?

18 Nov 2017

A 73-year-old woman developed two symptomatic major mitral paravalvular leaks 3 years after bioprosthetic mitral valve replacement. Two percutaneous transcatheter procedures were performed. Despite favourable immediate ultrasound control, a persistent hemolysis required red blood cell transfusions...

Going beyond boundaries in structural heart interventions?

25 Sep 2017 - From PCR LONDON VALVES 2017

Chairpersons: M.B. Leon, F. Maisano, A. Vahanian

Objectives: To gain perspective from thought leaders on how the cathlab will evolve over the next 5-10 years, to participate to a unique discussion on the evolution of structural heart interventions, to learn the preferred strategy for combined cardiac diseases: while a staged approach may represent a preferable strategy in selected patients, concomitant treatment of combined cardiac diseases represents an appealing option in a majority of patients.
