Percutaneous treatment for native mitral regurgitation


Sorajja, Paul; Maisano, Francesco (2017). Percutaneous treatment for native mitral regurgitation. Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases, 60(3):405-414.

Abstract

Severe mitral regurgitation (MR) confers an adverse prognosis, frequently with debilitating symptoms of heart failure. While open surgical correction has been the standard of care for decades, novel catheter-based technologies have emerged that are highly effective in the treatment of MR. These percutaneous technologies, which include methods for both repair as well as valve replacement, have the potential to address unmet clinical needs in patients with MR, and serve as a viable alternative to surgery.
