What to Expect
MitraClip™ therapy is a nonsurgical, minimally-invasive treatment for mitral regurgitation. MitraClip™ is a device used during transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) to help treat mitral regurgitation. MitraClip™ works by clipping together portions of the leaflets, or flaps, of the mitral valve to reduce mitral regurgitation, allowing the heart to pump blood more efficiently, relieving symptoms and improving quality-of-life.
MitraClip™ is an alternative to surgery for patients who are not surgical candidates. Patients who receive MitraClip™ therapy often experience from shorter recovery times and less scarring.
