Mitral valve replacement and repair

Here you will find all the latest content on mitral valve replacement and repair published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.Building on the years of experience with TAVI, mitral valve replacement and repair is now beginning to take-off with a vast array of new techniques and options. Certain devices, for instance in mitral repair, are now widely used. To understand this complex field a knowledge and mastery is required covering the latest research, emerging tools, devices and techniques, vascular access; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; imaging techniques such as echocardiography as well as understanding bleeding risks or patient selection.

New ESC/EACTS Guidelines for the management of Valvular Heart Disease (VHD)

31 Aug 2017

The new joint ESC/EACTS guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease have been hotly anticipated, with extended indications for transcutaneous aortic valve implantation (TAVI) widely tipped to be the star of the show. In comparison to 2012, where data from two randomized control trials assessing TAVI were available, outcome data from nearly six thousand patients across six randomized trials were available to the 2017 guideline writing committee. Therefore, the major challenge for this guideline was to assimilate this data and make it applicable in realworld clinical practice. In that regard, this new document has evolved beyond simple ‘guidance’ and now introduces new ‘concepts of care’ for patients with valvular heart disease.

The Tendyne device: a breakthrough in mitral valve replacement

Over the last few years, we have seen an explosion of devices targeting the repair or replacement of the mitral valve. Five years ago, there was tremendous hype in the field which generated the impression that many of these devices would be a good and permanent solution for patients with mitral disease that could not be treated surgically.

Transcatheter valve-in-valve and valve-in-ring interventions

30 Jun 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Which patients qualify for these interventions in the mitral or tricuspid space? What do they guidelines tell us – and how does that match our current experience? For this complex topic, we turn to the experts, interventionalists A.P. Kappetein and A. Vahanian along with and cardiac surgeon H. Treade to review where we stand today. From the nature of the ring, ventricular function or anatomical conditions such as “spotting the transseptal”, to approaching these often very sick patients ineligible for re-surgery, they discuss the techniques they use and how they identify the most appropriate patients. Find out more about this future trend today.

Wrap-up interview - Cardioband System, a new era for transcatheter valve repair

From EUROPCR 2017

Do we really have a new device that reproduces a surgical technique for mitral repair? Join F. Maisano, surgeon and interventionalist, R. S. von Bardeleben interventionalist and echocardiographer and A. Vahanian, interventional cardiologist as they explore this “cutting edge” system in valvular repair. Learn about current data which shows sustainable reduction in annulus size or the learning curve and role of CT scans in patient selection. Imaging is discussed along with a review of new imaging technologies that help make these interventions possible. Can this be translated this to the tricuspid space and tricuspid ring? A dream…or reality? Watch here…

Transcatheter treatment of mitral regurgitation

18 May 2017 – From EuroPCR 2017

Consult this session on the transcatheter treatment of mitral regurgitation if you want to learn more about mitral valve anatomy and the implications for percutaneous treatment of mitral regurgitation, understand the importance of echocardiography in device selection and appreciate the advantages and disadvantages of different percutaneous treatment options.

Multimodality imaging for valvular interventions

06 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Consult this video on all you need to know about imaging in aortic, mitral and tricuspid valves. From echo and CT scans to 3D TOE and ICE join D. Mylotte and H. Moellmann to find out more about how we see today in the valvular space.

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Interventions for Valvular Diseases

20 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Spotlight on valvular disease at EuroPCR 2017 with N. Piazza, B. Prendergast and A. Latib. In the aortic space, we look at 4-year results from the NOTION trial on valve durability or the REPRISE trial comparing different devices. The mitral space remains exciting with emerging data on a new device allowing edge-to-edge repair or the use of aortic devices in the mitral valve. The tricuspid? From innovation day through the course itself, there is great promise for the future with 3 trials now ongoing in Europe alone. Get your take-home message here...
