Percutanenous therapies for mitral regurgitation.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Percutaneous therapies for the treatment of mitral regurgitation have emerged rapidly over the past several years. Most of the percutaneous approaches are modifications of existing surgical approaches to mitral annuloplasty or leaflet repair. Most of the percutaneous devices are based on surgical approaches. Catheter-based leaflet repair with the MitraClip is accomplished using an implantable clip to mimic the surgical edge-to-edge technique. Percutaneous annuloplasty can be achieved indirectly via the coronary sinus, or directly from retrograde left ventricular access. Several of these percutaneous approaches have been successfully used in trials or are in the early stages of use in practice.
