We report a case of catheter-based edge-to-edge mitral valve repair in a teenage male patient with non-ischaemic cardiomyopathy to improve pulmonary hypertension secondary to severe functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) to defer anticipated heart transplantation. A 19-year-old patient with previous history of fulminant myocarditis followed by markedly left ventricular dysfunction presented with severe mitral regurgitation 3 years after initial recovery. Slightly over time, deterioration of FMR was associated with gradual increase in pulmonary artery pressures despite optimal medical therapy...

BACKGROUND: We assessed the mitral annular motion after mitral valve repair with the Sorin Memo 3D® (Sorin Group Italia S.r.L., Saluggia, Italy), which is a unique complete semirigid annuloplasty ring intended to restore the systolic profile of the mitral annulus while adapting to the physiologic dynamism of the annulus, using transesophageal real-time three-dimensional echocardiography. METHODS: 17 patients (12 male; mean age 60.4 ± 14.9 years) who underwent mitral annuloplasty using the Memo 3D ring were investigated...

OBJECTIVES: Following mitral valve repair for Barlow's disease, recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR) is believed to occur frequently and is mainly attributed to disease progression. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2015, 180 patients (40% women, mean age 58.7 ± 13.5 years) with Barlow's disease underwent mitral valve repair. To provide a longitudinal assessment of mitral valve repair durability, a multistate model for interval-censored observations (4 states: 1, Grade 0/1+ MR; 2, Grade 2+ MR; 3, Grade 3+/4+ MR; 4, reintervention/death) was developed...

A supramitral ring is a rare cause of mitral stenosis, while an isolated mitral valve cleft is a rare cause of congenital mitral regurgitation. Fortunately, both the lesions are known to have good outcomes after surgical correction. Although each is known to be associated with a variety of other structural heart defects, their coexistence has not been reported previously. We report a case of a three- and half-year-old boy detected to have a rare combination of supramitral ring producing severe mitral stenosis with a coexisting cleft in the anterior leaflet of mitral valve causing severe mitral regurgitation...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: As ventricular assist device (VAD) therapy in patients with advanced heart failure continues to grow, experience with concomitant valvular diseases present either before or after VAD implantation continues to accrue. In this review, we discuss recent data and current practice as it pertains to the subject of concomitant valvular disease in patients requiring VADs. RECENT FINDINGS: Persistent aortic valve closure has been identified as a potential contributor to aortic valve 'disuse atrophy' resulting in valve degeneration...

BACKGROUND: Mitral regurgitation is a heterogeneous disease. Determining which patients derive optimal outcomes from transcatheter edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (TMVR) remains challenging. We sought to determine whether baseline mitral valve anatomic characteristics are predictive of left atrial pressure (LAP) changes during TMVR with MitraClip. METHODS AND RESULTS: Consecutive patients with severe mitral regurgitation undergoing TMVR (n=112) underwent continuous intraprocedural LAP monitoring and retrospective echocardiographic analysis for specific mitral anatomic characteristics...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Despite the proven superiority of mitral repair over replacement for degenerative mitral disease, mitral valve replacement remains common. Guidelines now recommend referral of patients, particularly those whom are asymptomatic, to valve centers of excellence, although criteria that define such centers remain to be established. The purpose of this review is to define the structure of a mitral center of excellence and to review current clinical outcomes which are possible in such a center...

Objectives: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) are increasingly used for managing patients with valvular heart disease to whom surgery presents a high-risk. As these are costly procedures, a systematic review of studies concerned with their economic assessment was undertaken. Methods: The search was performed in PubMed and the Cochrane Library and followed recommended methodological steps. Studies were screened and their data were retrieved and were synthesized using a narrative approach...

A 40-year-old man was transferred to our hospital following an isolated horse kick injury to the anterior chest wall. The case showed bi-fascicular block, severe tricuspid valve regurgitation due to ruptured chordae tendineae of the anterior leaflet, moderate mitral valve regurgitation due to prolapse of mitral anterior leaflet, and hypokinetic motion of the inferior septal wall. Both tricuspid and mitral insufficiency were completely repaired by a surgical operation. Fortunately, these injuries were not fatal in this case, but the comprehensive assessment of cardiac damage and careful observation are important for managing patients with cardiac injury...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous mitral valve repair (PMVR) is increasingly performed in patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR). Post-procedural MR grading is challenging and an unsettled issue. We hypothesised that the direct planimetry of vena contracta area (VCA) by 3D-transoesophageal echocardiography allows quantifying post-procedural MR and implies further prognostic relevance missed by the usual ordinal scale (grade I-IV). METHODS: Based on a single-centre PMVR registry containing 102 patients, the association of VCA reduction and patients' functional capacity measured as six-minute walk distance (6 MW) was evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the causes of initial mitral valve (MV) repair failure, the details of reoperation and the long-term outcomes of mitral valve re-repair (Re-MVP). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 86 patients who underwent reoperation after MV repair for MR due to degenerative disease from October 1991 to December 2015. First, we analysed the initial MV repair data, causes of MV repair failure, reoperation data and long-term outcomes including survival...

BACKGROUND: The safety and efficacy of deep sedation (DS) in MitraClip® procedures have been shown previously. However, clinical experience demonstrates that in some patients DS is difficult to achieve. We hypothesize that some patient characteristics can predict difficult DS. METHODS: We prospectively analysed 69 patients undergoing MitraClip® procedures using DS. Application of DS was graded as simple (group 1) or difficult (group 2) depending on a cumulative score based on one point for each of the following criteria: decrease in oxygen saturation, retention of carbon dioxide, disruptive body movements, and the need for catecholamines...
