Abstract

:

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. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12453(J Card Surg 2015;30:53–54)
