MitraClip™ is a medical device used to treat mitral valve disease for individuals who should not have open-heart surgery. It is implanted via a tri-axial trans catheter technique and involves suturing together the anterior and posterior mitral valve leaflets
A less-invasive mitral regurgitation treatment option
Mitral regurgitation, which is caused by a leaky heart valve, can place serious burdens on your quality of life. If your doctor has told you that you’re not a candidate for surgery, you may be eligible for a less-invasive treatment option called transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVr).
- The procedure is less invasive than traditional open-heart surgery
- The procedure is included in the new medical guidelines for treating mitral regurgitation
- Procedures may vary from person to person, but patients are usually released from the hospital within 2 to 3 days
- You should experience improvement in your symptoms of mitral regurgitation and quality of life soon after your procedure
Schedule a personalized assessment and find out your treatment options.
