The treatment of both aortic and now mitral valvular disease has been transformed through transcatheter valvular interventions. TAVR has rapidly become the treatment of choice for symptomatic severe aortic stenosis in both high, and now intermediate-risk patients. Building upon this success the last two years have seen the clinical introduction of transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), with a number of devices being utilised in first-in-man and feasibility studies. These experiences have helped determine the anatomical requirements and specifications that enable successful device deployment and avoidance of complications...

OBJECTIVES: This study shows the impact of secondary mitral regurgitation (sMR) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) with the MitraClip system on sympathetic nerve activity (SNA). BACKGROUND: An increase in SNA is associated with worse outcomes and limited survival in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). METHODS: Twenty CHF-patients without relevant sMR and 30 CHF patients with symptomatic sMR were enrolled prospectively. All patients underwent standardized laboratory testing and microneurography...

OBJECTIVES: The authors propose a novel transcatheter transection of the anterior mitral leaflet to prevent iatrogenic left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction during transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR). BACKGROUND: LVOT obstruction is a life-threatening complication of TMVR caused by septal displacement of the anterior mitral leaflet. METHODS: In vivo procedures in swine were guided by biplane x-ray fluoroscopy and intracardiac echocardiography...

AIMS: Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) provides definitive valve replacement through a minimally invasive procedure. In the setting of TMVR, it remains unclear how relevant the differences between different mitral annular (MA) diameters are. We sought to define a simplified and reproducible method to describe the MA size. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using cardiac computed tomography angiography (CTA) studies of 47 patients, 3D MA perimeter (P3D) was annotated...

The mitral valve is a highly complex structure, the competency and function of which relies on the harmonious action of its component parts. Minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) for mitral valve repair or replacement (MVR/r) has been performed successfully with incremental improvements in techniques over the past decade. These minimally invasive procedures, while attractive to patients and referring physicians, should meet the same high bar for optimal clinical outcomes and long-term durability of valve repair as traditional sternotomy procedures...

Patients with mitral annular calcification (MAC) have high surgical risk for mitral valve replacement due to associated comorbidities and technical challenges related to calcium burden, precluding surgery in many patients. Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) with the compassionate use of balloon expandable aortic transcatheter heart valves has been used in this clinical scenario. The purpose of this review was to summarize the early experience including successes and failures reported. TMVR might evolve into an acceptable alternative for selected patients with severe MAC who are not candidates for conventional mitral valve surgery...

Mitral regurgitation (MR) has a high prevalence in older patient populations of industrialized nations. Common etiologies are structural, degenerative MR and functional MR secondary to myocardial remodeling. Because of co-morbidities and associated high surgical risk, open surgical mitral repair/replacement is deferred in a significant percentage of patients. For these patients transcatheter repair/replacement are emerging as treatment options. Because of the lack of direct visualization, pre- and intra-procedural imaging is critical for these procedures...

Mitral regurgitation (MR) can be divided into two major etiologies, primary and secondary MR. Primary MR, also termed degenerative or organic MR, is a disease of the valve itself and is treated routinely by surgical repair in all but prohibitive risk patients. In these patients, transcatheter repair techniques, including edge to edge repair with the MitraClip device have been largely successful and widely adopted. Transcatheter placement of artificial chords has also been performed. The potential role for transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) in primary MR will likely be quite limited...

Multidetector cardiac computerized tomography (CT) is a robust advanced imaging modality with high spatial resolution that has emerged as an essential tool for the planning of structural heart and electrophysiology interventions. The most notable example has been its important role in the pre-procedural planning of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), which has developed to the point that commercial software packages are commonly used for this application. More recently several novel approaches and devices have been developed for transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR)...

Systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the anterior mitral leaflet is a well reported complication of surgical mitral valve repair (MVR). In the current report, we present a case of SAM with left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) which occurred after transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) using the MitraClip device. LVOTO was caused by the combination of protrusion of the MitraClip device into the LVOT and underfilling of the left ventricle due to pericardial effusion and atrial fibrillation. Rapid clinical resolution and marked decline in LVOT pressure gradient occurred following surgical drainage and windowing of the pericardium...

AIMS: Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) is an emerging technology with the potential to treat patients with mitral regurgitation at excessive risk for mitral valve surgery. Geometrical measurements of the mitral valvular complex may have implications for the design of TMVR devices and for patient selection. This study sought to quantify the dynamic geometry of the mitral valvular complex in patients with significant functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) using multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT)...

AIMS: Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) is an emerging technology with the potential to treat patients with severe mitral regurgitation at excessive risk for surgical mitral valve surgery. Multimodality imaging of the mitral valvular complex and surrounding structures will be an important component for patient selection for TMVR. Our aim was to describe and evaluate a systematic multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) image analysis methodology that provides measurements relevant for transcatheter mitral valve replacement...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) is a complex procedure for patients with mitral regurgitation who cannot get surgery. However, there is a lack of data on how hospital volumes affect these outcomes. METHODS: We performed a cross sectional study based on Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's Nationwide Inpatient Sample database of 2012 and identified subjects using the ICD-9-CM procedure code of 35.97, which was introduced in October 2010 for percutaneous mitral valve repair if present in the primary or secondary procedure field...

Over the last few years, several surgical procedures to treat mitral regurgitation (MR) in high-risk or inoperable patients have inspired percutaneous devices, including valve repair and valve replacement technologies. As the field of transcatheter mitral valve intervention is rapidly developing, the interventional community is wondering whether valve implantation should become the leading percutaneous mitral valve therapy, and whether the introduction of reliable replacement technology will reduce the clinical value of repair approaches...

AIMS: Factors predicting outcomes after MitraClip implantation are not well defined. We aimed to report the influence of baseline renal function on short-term outcomes of patients enrolled in the investigator-initiated German transcatheter mitral valve interventions (TRAMI) registry. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty participating German centres prospectively included 778 patients (mean age 76.0 years [71-81], 38.8% female gender) at high surgical risk (mean logistic EuroSCORE 20% [12-32%]) undergoing TMVR with the MitraClip for the treatment of symptomatic functional (70%) or degenerative (30%) mitral valve regurgitation (FMR, DMR)...
