Transcatheter mitral valve therapies

  • 24 Accesses


Dr.O.P. Yadava, Editor-in-Chief, IJTC and Dr. V Bapat, Assistant Professor at Columbia University, New York, discuss issues related to slow development and uptake of transcatheter mitral valve replacement. Dr. Bapat stresses on the basic difference between transcatheter aortic and mitral valve interventions. He laments that issues related to mitral valve repair versus replacement and role of percutaneous MitraClip are still being hotly debated. He, however, is hopeful that technology shall evolve to make percutaneous options for secondary mitral regurgitation a viable proposition.
