MitraClip

Transcatheter mitral valve repair is catheter-based technology that uses a small clip attached to the mitral valve to treat mitral regurgitation. MitraClip allows the mitral valve to close more completely, helping to restore normal blood flow through the heart. It’s a less invasive treatment option for patients who are not good candidates for surgery, and has been shown to significantly reduce shortness of breath in patients with severe mitral regurgitation who may not be candidates for open surgical valve replacement.
