Attempts at transcatheter treatment of mitral valve regurgitation have generally been modeled on proven surgical procedures such as leaflet repair, annuloplasty, or prosthetic valve implantation. We introduce a novel approach to directly reducing the regurgitant orifice: the mitral valve spacer, a balloon that attempts to reduce the regurgitant orifice.

Objective: Endovascular coil embolization has become an effective treatment modality for most intracranial aneurysms. However, complex aneurysms including large and giant aneurysms, fusiform shaped aneurysms, wide necked aneurysm, or small aneurysm that are unsuitable for coil embolization are still deterrent to be treated. Flow diversion is a novel concept that ...
