If you have mitral valve regurgitation but aren’t healthy enough for mitral valve surgery, you may be a candidate for an innovative technique to repair the valve using a metal clip, known as the MitraClip®.

The technology used in this procedure repairs the mitral valve without the need for an invasive surgical procedure. The device is attached to a catheter that is inserted into the heart through a small incision in the groin area and is used to clip the leaflets of the mitral valve together. Once implanted, the device allows the heart to pump blood more efficiently, thereby relieving symptoms and improving patient quality of life.
