Transcatheter direct mitral valve annuloplasty with the Cardioband system for the treatment of functional mitral regurgitation


Taramasso, Maurizio; Inderbitzin, Devdas T; Guidotti, Andrea; Nietlispach, Fabian; Gaemperli, Oliver; Zuber, Michel; Maisano, Francesco (2016). Transcatheter direct mitral valve annuloplasty with the Cardioband system for the treatment of functional mitral regurgitation. Multimedia Manual Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, 2016:online.

Abstract

Direct mitral valve annuloplasty is a transcatheter mitral valve repair approach that mimics the conventional surgical approach to treat functional mitral regurgitation. The Cardioband system (Valtech Cardio, Inc., Or-Yehuda, Israel) is delivered by a trans-septal approach and the implant is performed on the atrial side of the mitral annulus, under live echo and fluoroscopic guidance using multiple anchor elements. The Cardioband system obtained CE mark approval in October 2015, and initial clinical experiences are promising with regard to feasibility, safety and efficacy.
