Abstract

While mitral valve repair using the MitraClip device is currently being evaluated in the EVEREST trials, surgical approaches to mitral regurgitation remain the standard of care, at least for operative candidates. Two patients in whom previous surgical annuloplasty failed to maintain MR reduction and who were treated with the MitraClip device after mitral valve repair surgery are described. Imaging and hemodynamic considerations associated with this approach are discussed.
