Successful Mitral Clipping Procedure for Severe Mitral Regurgitation Following Ring Mitral Annuloplasty
Division of Cardiology, King Fahd Armed Forces Hospital, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Percutaneous mitral valve repair has become an alternative to surgical MV repair in high-risk patients. It is primarily indicated in severe functional or degenerative MV regurgitation. The MitraClip system is a catheter- based device that places a stitch at the edge of the anterior and posterior mitral leaflets. Here, we describe a case of recurrent pulmonary edema secondary to severe MV regurgitation after treatment with an annuloplasty ring who was treated successfully using the MitraClip system.
