Abstract

Mitral valve regurgitation is a common valvular lesion affecting approximately 1 in 10 older adults, and it can be broadly categorized as degenerative or functional in etiology. Although transcatheter mitral valve repair with the MitraClip is currently approved for commercial treatment of severe degenerative mitral regurgitation, its role in patients with functional mitral regurgitation is evolving. Two recent pivotal trials have evaluated the effectiveness of the MitraClip device in those with severe functional mitral regurgitation. We review the concepts of edge-to-edge mitral valve repair and evidence regarding transcatheter edge-to-edge repair with MitraClip in patients with functional mitral regurgitation.
