Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mitral regurgitation (MR) is a common complication in heart failure patients, severely worsening their outcome. Because of the high perioperative risk, mitral valve surgery, which is the standard therapy for MR, is often not offered to these patients. Interventional therapies for mitral valve therapy might therefore constitute a novel therapeutic option particularly in this group. This article gives an overview of the available and evolving interventional strategies for mitral valve repair with a special emphasis on heart failure patients.
